Workshops Offered

The on-site workshops offered most frequently are Writing and Thinking, Writing to Learn, or Teaching the Academic Paper but we will work with schools and departments to tailor workshops to meet the needs of teachers in that school or district.

IWT is especially interested in collaborating with teachers and administrators to explore ways that writing and thinking workshops can address the concerns of teachers in content-specific courses, e.g., the workshop on Writing to Think Historically could be adapted to help social studies teachers with specific concerns about how to help students read and response to primary documents. Similarly, a workshop in Writing to Learn Math, which focuses on ways to use writing in the mathematics classroom, might also help students with the writing required on the Regents (in CA and NY) exam.
