The Invitational Summer Institute is a professional development program where teachers of all subjects and all grade levels, Pre-K to University come together to explore best practices, write and respond to others' writing and read and discuss current research. Educators leave the Summer Institute with a wealth of ideas generated by sharing with other dedicated educators, strategies and activities for instruction and assessment, a renewed energy for teaching, a sense of confidence in their own writing abilities, and a connection to a larger collegial group.
