Every summer educators attend the KMWP Invitational Summer Institute (ISI) to examine their practice and analyze research & theory related to the teaching of writing and its role in student learning. These teachers return to their classrooms as KMWP teacher consultants: models of effective disciplinary literacy instruction for their schools and districts.
Through the KMWP ISI, fellows enter a community of dedicated professionals who are committed to the improvement of education through effective writing practices. Three core principles guide the work of the ISI:
- Teachers are the best teachers of other teachers.
- Teachers are writers who understand and improve their practice when they write themselves.
- Teachers are leaders who can affect change in their classrooms and communities.
