Summer Writing Institute -  Session 2

The West Chester Writing Project offers a three-week, intense Institute focused on the Teaching of Writing. Participants earn six graduate credits from West Chester University.

Experienced teachers come together to demonstrate and examine their classroom practices, study the latest research about teaching, and develop their own teaching skills. As a result of these activities, teachers are better prepared for their own classrooms and for teaching other teachers.

This teachers-teaching-teachers model is the heart of the Project philosophy.

Teachers who successfully complete an Institute are eligible to teach in WCWP's summer Youth Programs, present in courses, and provide professional development for local school districts.

An application form, endorsement from a WCWP Teacher Consultant or school district administrator, and interview are required. Applications are considered on a rolling admission basis. For more information please call the WCWP office at 610-436-2202 or email the Director,
