The Pennsylvania Writing and Literature Project offers Invitational Institutes in the Teaching of Writing and the Teaching of Reading and Literature. Participants earn six graduate credits from West Chester University.
Experienced teachers come together to demonstrate and examine their classroom practices, study the latest research about teaching, and develop their own teaching skills. As a result of these activities, teachers are better prepared for their own classrooms and for teaching other teachers.
This teachers-teaching-teachers model is the heart of the Project philosophy.
Stipends are available through the National Writing Project to help defray costs.
Teachers who successfully complete an Institute are eligible to become paid teacher-consultants who coordinate courses, present in-service programs and teach in our summer Youth Programs.
An application form, endorsement from a PAWLP Fellow or school district administrator, and interview are required. Applications are considered on a rolling admission basis. For more information or an application please call the PAWLP office at 610-436-2202 or e-mail email@example.com.
