The Writing Institute is designed for K-8 educators, classroom teachers, school administrators, and curriculum specialists who are committed to turning classrooms into richly literate writing workshops.

This five day institute will equip you to lead a rigorous and personalized writing workshop, one in which students rehearse, draft, revise, and edit their own important writing projects. You’ll learn to draw on a continuum of writing development in order to assess your students, to respond to each individually, and to use small groups with efficiency. The institute will especially equip you to use TCRWP’s Units of Study to undergird your instruction.


This institute is for K-8 participants who have not attended a previous week-long TCRWP writing institute. Those interested in advanced or administrator sections are encouraged to apply to institutes held at Teachers College.


The noncredit registration fee for this institute is $825. This cost does not include meals or housing. You will be notified by e-mail if your application is accepted. Your acceptance e-mail will provide a link for payment (credit card or PO only). Please do not make any travel plans or reservations before you have been accepted into the institute.


The institute will be held in the Robert E. Fitch Senior High School High School in Groton, CT. For registration questions, please call TCRWP at 212-678-3104.
