Invitational Summer Institute
Begins June 8, 2020
Educators from throughout Northeast Ohio are joining together from June 8 through June 25 for the Invitational Summer Institute (ISI), a reading, writing, and professional development workshop that provides plenty of fresh ideas for engaging students in reading and writing.
Because Kent State University has moved classes online for most of the summer due to concerns about coronavirus, the Invitational Summer Institute is moving online, as well. The Institute will take place on eight days over the time span from June 8-25. It will be a combination of activities that are synchronous (everyone interacting online at the same time ) - and asynchronous (read, write, and reflect at a time that's convenient for participants).
