Hudson Valley Writing Project

Early Career Leadership Institute

The Early Career Leadership Institute is a year-long, three-part institute for grade K-12 and college teachers in the first five years of their careers. Participants develop new teaching and leadership skills as they learn powerful literacy strategies that allow them to put writing, deep reading, and critical thinking at the center of their practice.
