Wrap up of 2012 Summer Institute

Eight teachers earned 52 Renewal Points at UT-Martin by participating in the 20th Invitational Summer Institute of the West Tennessee Writing Project, May 12 and June 4 -­ June 14, 2012.  Teachers shared demonstrations on using writing across the curriculum, learned how to incorporate more technology in their teaching, and honed their writing skills in small peer groups.  Teachers participating were from the West Tennessee Counties of Carroll, Dyer, Lauderdale, Madison, and Weakley.  Doug Billings, from Lauderdale Middle School, was the co-facilitator of the group.  The group will meet again in Fall 2012 and Spring 2013 for Saturday follow-ups to share new writing, new teaching strategies, and updates on teacher inquiry.
