Summer Institute: Aiken Writing Project
University of South Carolina Aiken – The Aiken Writing Project will hold its annual Summer Institute for teachers K-12 who are interested in learning new strategies to improve their students’ writing skills. Participants will join the thousands of teachers nationwide who take part in the National Writing Project’s summer institutes. Teachers who attend will study the latest research and effective classroom practices particularly with Common Core State Standards.
National research studies confirm significant gains in writing performance among students whose teachers participate in NWP programs.
