Explore NMWA’s curriculum and online resources during our annual, week-long institutes. Leave energized and primed with new ideas!

Ideal for educators of grades 3–8, the annual summer ABC Teacher Institute, now in its 8th year, introduces participants to the Arts, Books, and Creativity (ABC) Curriculum and resources. Since 2010, approximately 150 pre-kindergarten through 12th grade teachers have attended this institute, and all of them say they would recommend it to a colleague!

The biennial Advanced Teacher Institute is open to ABC Teacher Institute alumni interested in further exploring the ABC curriculum while expanding their tool kit of book formats, writing samples, and integration ideas.
