MSU’s chapter of the Red Cedar Writing Project (RCWP) invites six outstanding teachers of writing, regardless of discipline, to apply to participate in its annual Invitational Institute. During the Summer Institute teachers demonstrate for one another promising approaches to writing instruction, focus on their own fiction and non-fiction writing skills, participate in writing groups, identify questions that they have related to the teaching and practice of writing, and engage in reading that expands their understanding of literacy pedagogies, policies and research. At the conclusion of their work in the SI, these teachers are identified as RCWP Fellows and NWP Teacher-Consultants (TCs) — a credential that is recognized in all fifty states and nine foreign countries.
