  • Every workshop demonstrates how to combine writing, reading, and listening to create effective lesson plans in all academic subjects.
  • Our workshops are intellectually stimulating and feature diverse texts–fiction, poetry, essays, historical documents, and research.
  • We make an ongoing commitment to teaching through writing in on-site workshops at schools and colleges

workshops create opportunities for teachers of all subjects to experience learning through writing across all academic fields, benefiting from the supportive dialogue they find with colleagues during the workshops. In writing together, there is a sense of community and cooperative effort that develops among participants even over time and distance. This sense of community sets IWT apart from university writing programs, creative writing workshops, and many professional development programs for secondary teachers.
