Apply for our NEW Invitational Institute!
The Hudson Valley Writing Project's new Invitational Institute, Leadership in the Teaching of Writing, is designed to meet the professional and personal needs of teachers and administrators. Comprised of three graduate courses offered over the course of a single year, the institute is for educators who want to develop expertise in writing instruction and literacy development, and serve as leaders in their school communities.
HVWP invites applications from educators who work with students of all ages, from pre-kindergarten to college, in all subject areas, including the arts, special education and English language learning. Participants are selected based on their interest in learning and leadership, their teaching experience, their written application, and a collegial interview.
Leadership in the Teaching of Writing begins in May 2014 and ends in May 2015. The group meets 1 Saturday in May, 9 days in July, and 8 Saturdays during the school year. Throughout the institute, the cohort remains engaged and connected through online discussion forums.
Leadership in the Teaching of Writing is offered in partnership with the New Paltz Central School District and SUNY New Paltz at a reduced tuition of $850 for each 3-credit course. (The regular cost is estimated at $1,400 per course.) There are no additional fees. Ask your professional development administrator how HVWP's institute fits with your district's salary incentive or career ladder programs.
"HVWP has a momentum that progresses forward and goes beyond writing; always thinking, always learning, and always sharing knowledge. The professionalism, infectious love of teaching, and amazing ability to facilitate learning is a model that speaks to HVWP dedication to the work, which I will eagerly follow and emulate in my classroom and beyond."
