I can honestly say it was one of the most intense, impactful, emotional learning experiences I've been involved in as a teacher. And I've been teaching 24 years, so that's no small statement.
— Heather, Red Clay Summer Institute attendee
The College of Education hosts several iterations of Red Clay Writing Workshop events, many for UGA credit or state PLUs. All Red Clay Writing Project offerings are designed and implemented through the lenses of teacher leadership, teaching for social justice, and teaching in inquiry-based ways.
All Red Clay Writing Project activities are open to P-16 teachers interested in learning more about writing as teachers, writing pedagogy, writing communities, social justice, classroom-based inquiry, and teacher leadership.
