Summer Institute fellows at work

Each Summer the BWP awards a select group of fellowships in the teaching of writing. Teachers of all grade levels and subject areas, K-12, are invited to apply. Visit our application page or download application in Word Document format.

The intensive multi-week seminar assists teachers in developing individual and classroom writing practices. Teachers share their writing in small groups and present aspects of composing which they view as valuable in their respective classroom contexts.

Participants can deepen their understanding of writing pedagogy and practice in specialized areas such as: ELL, poetry, content area writing, writing for publication, and multiculturalism. As part of the Graduate Certificate in Teaching Writing in the Schools, teams of teachers conduct inquiry based research.
