The 2019 Invitational Summer Institute

The 22nd Invitational Summer Institute was June 18-July 2 at the Texas State University campus in San Marcos and in Round Rock. Eleven teachers attended in San Marcos, and 21 gathered in Round Rock. The two institutes culminated in Visitors' Day, a celebration of 17 days of intense professional development. It was also a day to welcome our newest Teacher Consultants to the National Writing Project network.
