Georgia (May 13, 2003) — Kennesaw Mountain Writing Project hosts summer institute for teachers
Thirteen K−12 teachers have been selected to participate in the Kennesaw Mountain Writing Project Summer Institute to be held June 4−27 at Kennesaw State University.
Since 1994‚ the KMWP has sponsored this annual institute for competitively selected educators who would like to become "teachers of teachers" through this ongoing staff development program. The summer fellows come from every subject area and grade level; from suburban‚ rural and urban settings; and from schools serving an array of socioeconomic and ethnic populations. The main purpose of the institute is to prepare talented educators to serve as teacher consultants‚ able to lead professional development initiatives in their home schools and districts. KMWP fellows are interested in becoming better writers themselves‚ see writing as central to learning in the subject area(s) they teach and are eager to become leaders in education.
A list of the 2003 fellows and their schools follows.
The KMWP is a National Writing Project site. For more information visit the KMWP Web site at www.kennesaw.edu/english/kmwp.
