Certificate in Teaching Writing
The certificate in Teaching Writing is designed to provide teachers of all levels with the opportunity to use research and theory to foster a vision of literacy learning as an active social process in which students become engaged writers.
The certificate can stand alone, but will be recognized by the following Drew programs to stack to a degree:
Participants are able to earn the certificate solely through graduate credits or through a combination of graduate credit and professional development hours offered by the Drew Writing Project and Digital Literacies Collaborative. Graduate courses are offered in face-to-face, online, and blended formats depending on the semester and the course.
