The next Advanced Teacher Institute will take place in July 2017.

During this week-long advanced practicum, alumni of the NMWA’s ABC Teacher Institute apply their knowledge of the Art, Books, and Creativity (ABC) curriculum and expand upon it. Participants engage with a book artist; curriculum specialists in art, science, and language arts; and NMWA educators to expand their tool kit of book formats, writing samples, and integration ideas as well as to explore the parallels between studio and STEM habits of mind.

The ABC curriculum and professional development content presented online and in the Summer Teacher Institute were developed by NMWA and its partners between 2003 and 2010 with two grants from the U.S. Department of Education.

The 2015 ABC Advanced Teacher Institute was supported by the Leo Rosner Foundation,  Newman’s Own Foundation, and Wells Fargo. Additional funding was provided by the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities, an agency supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts.
