Invitational Leadership Institute
The FVWP Invitational Leadership Institute provides an outstanding opportunity for K-12 teachers to learn about effective literacy practices and to improve classroom instruction in all content areas. Participants in the three-credit graduate course engage in writing activities, reflect on their teaching, read professional texts, and share their expertise.
