Graduate Certificate in Teaching
Become a more effective literacy leader as you work with our
award-winning faculty and collaborate with colleagues to develop,
implement, and share curriculum and writing strategies that work.
The Graduate Certificate in Teaching Writing is an 18-credit-hour
program offered through the Greater Kansas City Writing Project
housed in the Department of English at the University of Missouri –
Kansas City. The Certificate provides opportunities for teachers –
from pre-kindergarten through college -- to write and to examine
theory, research, and practice together systematically.
All Greater Kansas City Writing Project courses follow a “teachers
teaching teachers” model, address the needs of diverse learners, and
promote reflective practice. Our courses are backed by national
research confirming significant gains in the writing of students
whose teachers participated in Writing Project programs.
