Teaching of Writing

Developed for K-16 educators, the Graduate Certificate in the Teaching of Writing helps you develop your capacity as a teacher and teacher-leader by receiving a strong grounding in writing and literacy pedagogy. You’ll gain a deep understanding of learning to write and writing to learn through a combination of working on your own writing, reflecting on your teaching practices, and reading current research. This certificate is sponsored by the Western Massachusetts Writing Project, a professional development program within the Department of English and the Division of Continuing and Professional Education.
