Graduate Certificate in Teaching Writing

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.
