The UCLA Writing Project invites you to apply for our Summer Invitational Institute where you’ll be immersed in the teaching of writing. You will experience and demonstrate successful teaching practices, learn from a wonderful group of educators, and develop your own craft. Issues of social justice will be the backdrop of all our endeavors. English, social studies, mathematics, world language teachers, and all teachers of multi-lingual learners—this Project is for all of us!
