Teaching Writing in the Schools


Return to Colleges and Departments Return to: Colleges and Departments

The Program

K-12 educators enrolled in the Teaching of Writing in the Schools graduate certificate program will receive a strong grounding in writing and reflective teaching while developing a framework for teaching literacy and writing across the curriculum. Participants will gain a deeper understanding of literacy learning through a combination of working on their writing, reflecting on their teaching practices, and reading current research in composition, literacy, and writing pedagogy. Following the Boston Writing Project “teachers teaching teachers” model, participants will share successful writing activities and develop and implement curriculum. They will formulate research questions about their teaching practices and document the effects of their instruction by collecting and analyzing student work. Practicing K-12 teachers and administrators who seek to enhance their knowledge, skills, and perspective on the teaching and learning of literacy and writing are invited to apply. Teachers of English, writing, and special education and Title 1, ELL, and bilingual teachers who want to incorporate writing into their disciplines will benefit from this certificate program.
