UH Mānoa's College of Education is the new home of the Hawai‘i Writing Project (HWP), which is celebrating its 30th year as an affiliate of the National Writing Project. Directed by Rhonda Nowak, assistant professor in the Institute for Teacher Education, HWP’s mission is “to improve and integrate the teaching of writing and reading in Hawai`i's schools.”


This June through July, HWP will offer teacher professional development during three institutes – its core writing program called the Invitational Summer Institute, the Academic Vocabulary Institute, and the Reading-Writing Connections Institute.


Teachers can earn up to five DOE professional development credits or up to six COE graduate credits upon completion of an institute and a classroom inquiry project.
