Teaching Writing and Literacy Certificate offered at Penn State Lehigh Valley

CENTER VALLEY, Pa. — The Lehigh Valley Writing Project will offer a specialist certificate in teaching writing and literacy for educators from all content areas this fall. The 15-credit postbaccalaureate program is designed to afford educators deep study in all aspects of teaching literacy. It is similar in design to the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s range of educational endorsements.

The program contains 12 core credits plus a three-credit elective concentration for a 15-credit certificate with classes being held at the Penn State Lehigh Valley campus in Center Valley. Courses begin in fall 2018. The course schedule and information can be accessed on the program webpage. Participants may pursue their National Writing Project Fellowship with the optional three-credit capstone course.
