Oregon Writing Project’s Invitational Summer Institute provides a supportive, dialogic environment for K-12 educators from across the curriculum to develop their leadership potential for a variety of roles, including local school/district reform efforts that support the education and success of all of Oregon’s diverse student population.

Participants will examine the theory and practice of writing through individual demonstrations, readings and discussion of current research, writing, and sharing in response groups.

Social justice and social action scaffold the Summer Institute experience in an attempt to embrace democratic ideals.

The Oregon Writing Project (OWP), is a collaboration program between Lewis & Clark and metropolitan or rural area schools and districts, and offers programs designed to improve the writing of Oregon’s K-12 students and teachers.
