UCI Writing Project - Summer Institute 2023
The centerpiece of the UCI Writing Project is our Summer Institute. It is an invigorating four-week seminar for teachers (pre-k through university). This year teachers will focus on adventures in teaching writing. The adventures of each individual fellow in our program can take many forms, such exploring new writing strategies, going on a journey to redevelop your classroom writing curriculum, joining an expedition of teachers who problem solve together, or voyaging toward social justice in writing instruction. During our 2023 summer adventures, we’ll work together to avoid perils and pitfalls, such as lack of motivation, lack of accessibility, red-tape, and worksheets. The Summer Institute will model and provide options for promoting literacy in both digital and in-person contexts. The Institute will empower and excite participants in thinking deeply about their practices as they enhance their own abilities as writers and develop as leaders in the field.
