Register for Invitational Summer Institute

Join educators from throughout Northeast Ohio this summer 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. It's also a wonderful opportunity to make connections with educators who are passionate about bringing the best learning experiences to their students.
