Sam Houston Writing Project

The Sam Houston Writing Project (SHWP) at Sam Houston State University is one of more than 200 sites of the National Writing Project across the country. Recently, the Sam Houston Writing Project sponsored an online summer invitational institute for grades 4-12 inservice teachers.

2015 Summer Writing Institute

The three-week online Summer Writing Institute took place in the summer 2015. We used Blackboard to post assignments and Blackboard Collaborate for the weekly live seminars. There were 10 participants: 2 mathematics teachers, 2 science teachers, 3 English language arts teachers, 1 social studies teacher, 1 Elementary school principal, and 1 English Department Chair. Most were either elementary or middle grades teachers, except 2 language arts teachers and the English Department Chair, who taught at the secondary level.
