Oregon Writing Project’s Invitational Summer Institute (ISI) is an intentional, multi-layered, social justice professional learning experience designed by teachers for teachers to increase educators’ knowledge, confidence, and capacity to help students learn how to write and think with passion and power.
ISI provides a supportive, dialogic environment for K-12 educators from across the curriculum to develop their leadership potential for a variety of roles—including local school/district reform efforts that support the education and success of all of Oregon’s diverse student population.
Participants will examine the theory and practice of writing through individual demonstrations, readings and discussion of current research, writing, and sharing in response groups. Summer Institute experience embraces democratic ideals by scaffolding social justice and social action throughout the four-weeks.
