Summer Institute

LRWPSummerInstituteEach year the Little Rock Writing Project brings together successful teachers from all levels of instruction—elementary through college—and from across the academic disciplines for an intensive, four-week Summer Institute. The aims of the institute are as follows:

  • To help participants broaden and deepen their knowledge of writing theory and practice;
  • To give participants an opportunity to demonstrate their best practices in teaching writing;
  • To give participants an opportunity to write and to share their writing;
  • To prepare “teacher-consultants” who can teach approaches to writing instruction to other teachers.

Participants who successfully complete the Summer Institute receive 6 graduate credit hours at no cost and are certified as National Writing Project and Little Rock Writing Project teacher-consultants.

  • The dates for next year’s Summer Institute are June 9 – June 30, 2014.
  • Applications (located below) for the Summer Institute are due January 30.
  • Once complete, applications are reviewed and interviews scheduled.
  • Applicants are strongly advised not to wait for the deadline, but to complete their applications as early as possible.

In addition to the form, please submit a letter of recommendation, from a supervisor or a colleague, to Heather Hummel (hkhummel@ualr.edu) by March 11.
