The Summer Institute of the Green Mountain Writing Project (formerly the National Writing Project in Vermont) brings together a group of teachers of all subjects, from kindergarten through college. During two three-day weeks, participants look at themselves as writers, teachers and researchers.

• Green Mountain Writing Project participants draw on the research and experience of others across the profession and across the years.
• Teachers write, respond to each other’s writing, revise and publish throughout the Institute, learning writing from the inside out and profoundly informing their instruction.
• Teachers read and apply the works of other teacher-writers and researchers.
• Teachers participate in research-based teaching inquiries, transferable across grades and subject areas.
