The July weeklong workshops help teachers deepen their understanding of writing-based teaching, its theory and practices, and its application in the classroom. Each workshop focuses on a particular form of writing—the essay, the academic paper, creative nonfiction, poetry—or on writing-based teaching in a particular subject area, such as history, science and math, or grammar.

Writing to LearnWriting to Learn introduces participants to IWT’s foundational writing-based teaching practices, but with a particular emphasis on their application to specific subject areas and disciplines. This workshop is multidisciplinary: it models writing strategies that help students explore complex ideas in diverse contexts, such as historical primary sources, literary texts, tables and statistics, essays from the social sciences, and STEM texts. These writing-to-learn practices support close reading, encourage students to learn from one another, and help them make personal connections to the people, places, and concepts they study. The workshop focuses on using writing to build an initial understanding of texts—a crucial first step in creating formal essays or reports—and to revise this preliminary thinking as their understanding deepens. We will explore how writing-to-learn practices can reshape how we teach and how the academic lecture, collaborative learning practices, and the act of listening can reinforce one another within the classroom.
Online workshops will run from Monday July 12 – Friday July 16, from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm New York l 9:00 am – 1:00 pm Vienna
(including a 30-minute break.)
