The Writing Institute is designed for K-5 educators, classroom teachers, school administrators, and curriculum specialists who are committed to turning classrooms into richly literate reading and writing workshops.

During this five-day institute, small and large group sections will tackle, headfirst, the central role of curriculum development and planning in the teaching of writing, units of study in writing, ways to help students write well about reading, and genre studies in narrative, opinion, and information writing. Participants will also learn practical way to hold our students accountable for doing their best work and to use literature to help students craft their writing.


This institute is for K-5 participants who have not attended a previous weeklong TCRWP writing institute. Those interested in advanced or administrator sections are encouraged to apply to instiutes at Teachers College.


The noncredit registration fee for this institute is $825. This cost does not include meals or housing. You will be notified by e-mail if your application is accepted.
