The centerpiece of the BWP --and all NWP sites-- is an invitational summer institute in which teachers are brought together for an intensive, four-week seminar designed to enhance writing education by:
- Providing a setting for teachers to share their most successful writing practices,
- helping institute participants broaden their teaching philosophies through an examination of writing theory and research,
- allowing participants to commit themselves intensely and
reflectively to the process of writing by writing themselves and by
reviewing each other's written pieces.
