CWP Summer Institute, June 29-July 24.

There will be 17 teachers in this year's Summer Institute, from grade 2 to community college. Most are English/Language Arts teachers but we also have a French teacher, a Special Education teacher, and a teacher of English as a Second Language. There are a couple of teachers who teach UConn Early College Experience courses (English and French) and three who are in degree programs at UConn--MA in Curriculum and Instruction, 6th Year in Educational Leadership, and PhD in French Literature--as well as one who is in her MA program at St. Joseph, also in Curriculum and Instruction.

There will be guest lectures from Gina Barreca, Lynn Bloom, and Doug Kaufman of the Neag School of Ed, as well as English Professor Steve Straight of Manchester Community College--who got his MA from us many years ago.

This is our 33rd SI since 1982, and we now have 506 Teacher-Consultants who have attended a summer institute.
