Summer Institute

Chippewa River Writing Project Summer Institute

As a site of the National Writing Project, the Chippewa River Writing Project adheres to a model of “teachers teaching teachers” and invites you to join us  summer institutes  that will engage you as a writer and teacher of writing.

I gained a network of colleagues and friends… a group in which I feel very comfortable and hope to share many years of writing, collaboration, and learning together.

Building and sharing with a network of colleagues, and learning new technologies and teaching strategies have inspired me to re-think my current situation and approach teaching from new perspectives.
