DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire will host a nine-day art and literature-based writing institute this summer to provide teachers with in-depth training in both Picturing Writing™: Introduction and Integrated Curriculum Model and Image Making™ Integrated Curriculum Model. These unique art-and-literature-based processes, proven by research to dramatically improve student writing, are guaranteed to entice even the most reluctant writers.

By giving students access to visual and kinesthetic modes of thinking at each and every stage of the writing process, Picturing Writing and Image-Making provide an important pathway into writing for children with diverse learning styles. This institute will present teachers with a model for integrating art and literature into the science and social studies curriculum.

The institute will take place July 12-16, and 19-22, 2004, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Elementary classroom teachers, middle school teachers, art, reading, and special education specialists and teachers of gifted and talented are encouraged to attend. Deadline to register is June 1, 2004. For more information and to register contact Liz Arcieri at 603-862-3691 or visit www.picturingwriting.org.
