This course registration process is for CEUs only.  Participants who want graduate degree credit must register through WT Student Planning.  Call the Department of Education at (806) 651-2600 for more information.

Join a community and support system of educators from all grade levels and disciplines to examine the most pressing issues related to teaching and learning writing.  The course is 
open to any K-16 educators who have a minimum of one year teaching experience.  All content areas are welcome—math, science, social studies and the arts.

During the Institute, participants will:

  • Learn from other teachers about the teaching of writing
  • Anticipate challenges for teaching in the future in areas such as: authentic assessment, multicultural writing concerns, computer-assisted instruction, collaborative learning, writing across the curriculum, and the needs of diverse learners
  • Discover more about your own writing process
  • Become a community of teacher-writers
  • Explore current theory and practice in the teaching of writing
  • Consider ways you can share your strengths with other teachers as consultants
  • Hone your own writing skills
Participants who complete the course will become a National Writing Project Teacher Consultant. Teacher consultants have the opportunity to create professional development programs for Panhandle Plains school districts, design and present at an annual writer’s conference held at WTAMU, develop youth writing programs, and participate in the adjudication process for the Scholastic Writing Awards, just to name a few.

Entry into the class is by application only.  If you have not applied to the institute, please call Dr. Chanel Rodriguez at 651-2607 or email rcrodriguez@wtamu.edu
