Rhode Island Writing Project’s
Summer Invitational Institute on Writing and Critical Literacy

July 9 –July 26
Monday – Thursday
8:30 AM - 1:00 PM @ Rhode Island College

4 RIC graduate credits in English or Education

With application open to all teachers (K-16) in all content areas, the Summer Invitational Institute invites teachers to draw from their broad range of experiences to share ideas and to develop new understandings about teaching and learning. During the three weeks of the institute, teachers read and discuss professional texts, write formally and informally, share practice, and re-think what it means to promote literacy and to teach writing within their schools and classrooms. Now in its 27th year, the RIWP Summer Invitational Institute transforms the way teachers think about themselves and their work.

Teachers who are accepted into the Summer Institute for four graduate credits in either English or Education pay $750.00, a much-reduced fee made possible by a generous grant from the National Writing Project. (A 4-credit graduate course at RIC normally costs between $1400-$2800.)

Additionally, the RIWP Summer Invitational Institute on Writing and Critical Literacy can be included in a Personal Growth Plan for the new Rhode Island Model Educator Evaluation System. Please see our website for information on how to apply:
