The Invitational Summer Institute brings together teachers from across the Lowcountry, in all grade levels and all disciplines, for four weeks of reading, writing, research, and practice. Participants, invited on the basis of an application and a personal interview, meet each day to write, discuss their writing, read about and discuss effective ways to teach writing and use writing as a learning tool, research writing topics of their choice, and improve their teaching practices by leading or taking part in demonstrations of effective teaching practices. Participants earn six hours of graduate credit; a grant covers the cost of tuition and books.
Most sessions will take place at The Citadel, with Wednesday sessions at the beach house. There will a half-day pre-institute conference on March 8, followed by a "writing marathon" on April 26. Applicants need to be able to attend all sessions, and should not plan to take other classes concurrent with this institute.
Applications due Feb 15, 2014. Interview Tuesday, Feb 18, 5:00-6:30 pm, The Citadel.
