Advanced Institute: Paula Diedrich will lead an Advanced Institute May 15, June 28, 29, and 30. Following NMU's guidelines, a minimum of 12 TCs are needed for the course to be held. The focus of the AI will be writing assessment, using the NWP's Analytic Writing Continuum (AWC) as a springboard. TCs will be trained in the use of the AWC and then gain the access to using the tool in their own classrooms. One day will be spent developing possible action research if TCs are interested. At this point, it appears there will be enough funding to support 10 TCs with tuition. The AI is 2 credits and 1 credit may be covered by the UPWP grant funds. Please email Paula as soon as possible if you are at all interested.
