Tidewater Writing Project Open Institute

The Tidewater Writing Project (TWP) is offering an Open Institute focused on making writing instruction a priority in PreK – 12 content areas. I am writing to ask you to encourage your teachers to attend the Open Institute in Spring 2020 on March 21st, from 9 AM to 3 PM. The registration is $60 per teacher and registration is due March 1st. This training is available for PreK – 12 teachers and attendees will receive 5 hours’ worth of re-certification points toward their professional development training.

As an affiliate of the National Writing Project, the Tidewater Writing Project seeks to build teacher leadership in schools and improve students’ writing and learning in all subjects and at all grade levels. The Open Institute will demonstrate writing techniques and explore teaching strategies that have been proven to have significantly positive effects on the quality of students’ writing in different content areas of PreK – 12 classrooms. Our goal is that attendees of the Open Institute will implement what they have learned in their classrooms and share ideas with their colleagues.

If you have any questions or concerns you would like to discuss, please feel free to contact Dr. Lea Lee at lxlee@odu.edu or tidewaterwritingproject757@gmail.com. Thank you for your time and consideration.
