In this weeklong institute, early childhood teachers rethink their reading and writing practices in light of new research trends. Join a community of teachers committed to thinking deeply about best literacy practices and bring home hundreds of classroom ideas. Participants in our Classroom Storytelling Project are encouraged to enroll in this Summer Institute, which reinforces and deepens the learning of the school-year sessions.
This institute provides early childhood and elementary teachers opportunities to discover fresh, effective writing activities and techniques that span the genres. Two sections are offered: one for early childhood teachers (Pre-K-1st) and one for elementary teachers (2nd-4th). During the institute, expert School Literacy and Culture mentors and Creative Writing Camp teachers share narrative, expository and poetry prompts that transfer directly to the classroom and meet the needs of students in innovative ways. English, social studies and science are specifically addressed.
