~~ "Thank you so much for the opportunity to both renew and re-imagine my teaching
practice this summer! I will be a better teacher because of your efforts and the wonderful
inspiration I found through experiencing the work of my peers." ~~
~~ "I feel more up to speed with current education trends and research
as well as versed in the new Common Core standards and how they will impact
my classroom. This was one of the best experiences of my teaching career." ~~
In the Invitational Summer Institute, a cohort of twenty educators, each with special expertise, come together to study literacy and writing instruction on the SUNY New Paltz campus. The program is
facilitated by university professors and veteran classroom teachers.
Participants write personally and professionally, share successful teaching practices, and learn about integrating new technologies in the classroom. They
examine recent texts on literacy development, educational reform, and writing. This program allows participants to see how strong teaching and principled practice aligns with values outlined in the Common Core Learning Standards and APPR policies. After the summer, teachers continue to hone their leadership and expertise by working as participant leaders in HVWP inservice, with several eventually leading youth writing programs as well.
HVWP invites educators working with students of all ages (pre-kindergarten to adult) and in all subject areas, (e.g., social studies, mathematics, science, art, technology, library/media, special education, ESL and English language arts) to apply for the Invitational Summer Institute. HVWP has a special interest in working with educators who teach students affected by poverty because of our commitment to teaching for social justice.
