Institutes (Multi-Day Events)

For over thirty years, educators have come together at Teachers College for institutes on the teaching of reading and writing. Together, we study methods and plan curricula, revitalize our thinking, and most importantly, encourage our students to lead rich and literate lives.

The institutes feature keynote addresses by celebrated authors, world renowned teacher-educators, and other all-stars in the field of literacy and learning. Institutes include small and large group sections that are designed to help teachers, coaches and administrators establish vibrant, rigorous models of best practices. The institutes scaffold the Project’s work in schools.

Each summer we offer two five-day institutes on the teaching of reading and two five-day institutes on the teaching of writing. The reading and writing institutes are taught back to back, first in June/July and then again in August. During the school year, we offer two coaching institutes (one focusing on writing instruction and one focusing on reading instruction), as well as smaller institutes on a variety of topics, which are listed below.

For dates, deadlines, and other details, please visit the pages for specific institutes.
