The Invitational Summer Institute of the Green Mountain Writing
Project (formerly the National Writing Project in Vermont)
brings together a group of experienced teachers of all subjects,
from kindergarten through college. During a pre-institute
orientation, four 4-day weeks, and a follow-up session, fellows
look at themselves as writers, teachers and researchers.
- Fellows write, respond to each others writing, revise and publish throughout the summer institute, learning writing from the inside out and profoundly informing their instruction.
- Green Mountain Writing Project fellows draw on the research of others across the profession and across the years, reading and applying the works of other teacher-writers and researchers as they examine issues of interest and concern in their teaching and writing practices.
- Fellows prepare, refine, present and respond to research-based teaching demonstrations, transferable across grades and subject areas. Upon successful completion of the Invitational Summer Institute, teachers may become part of the GMWPs statewide and national network of Teacher Consultants, continuing to build a knowledge base and equip themselves for leadership at their own schools and/or in GMWP sponsored programs.
Facilitated by a leadership team that includes GMWP co-directors and experienced teacher consultants, the Invitational Summer Institute begins with an orientation prior to the summer institute. The summer session runs Mondays - Thursdays during July. In addition, all fellows attend a follow-up session in the fall and may become active in the many GMWP programs in our network. Fellows are eligible for six graduate credits in English or Education at a substantial discount.
