DWP’s Annual Advanced Institute
Each summer, the Denver Writing Project offers a week-long Advanced Institute for educators to develop their own writing and work on becoming better teachers of writing.
Teachers from all disciplines and all grade levels are welcome to join us for a week committed to themselves and each other as we continue to develop our skills as teacher/writers. During the week we’ll write, study effective practices in the teaching of writing and attend short seminars offered by professional writers from our area.
Days/Times: June 13th-17th, 2016. Monday through Friday from 9AM to 4PM
Location : CU Denver, Auraria Campus, TBD
Registration Fee: $50
