Red River Valley Writing Project: Summer Institute
June 14 @ 8:30 am - June 24 @ 12:30 pm
The RRVWP Summer Institute offers participants a place to read and discuss ideas about teaching writing and using writing to teach—plus time to write. Teachers also share best teaching practices through hands-on teaching demonstrations and explore the teaching of writing by writing. Readings cover best practices for digital learning tools, how to align K-12 teaching with writing for college, and resources from the National Writing Project’s C3WP (College, Career, Community Writing Program). The Summer Institute is led by Ben Melby (Senior Lecturer, NDSU) and Angela Hase (High School Teacher, Moorhead Public Schools), with a guest teaching demo by Troy Hicks (Professor of English, Central Michigan University and Director of the Chippewa River Writing Project).
