Invitational Summer Institute

July 13-17, 2020

About Summer Institute: UNC Charlotte's Invitational Summer Institute is an institute of the UNC Charlotte Writing Project, a model of the widely acclaimed National Writing Project, created nearly thirty years ago in order to improve the teaching and learning of writing in all grade levels and disciplines.

The Invitational Summer Institute on the teaching of writing invites a maximum of 20 exemplary teachers of writing from grades K-14 and in all disciplines to present and discuss their teaching practices, examine and critique research, and engage in professional and personal writing.

Since its first summer program in 1979, more than 500 teachers have participated in Writing Project Institutes at UNC Charlotte. Following the Summer Institute, the project's Teacher-Consultants conduct in-service programs and participate in a variety of advanced seminars, including teacher research.

Due to the high volume of quality applicants in 2019, UNCCWP is not currently accepting new applications. Applicants who were wait-listed in 2019 will have first priority in 2020.
