About

Acquire new and innovative ways to teach writing to your students, study theories and best practices on the teaching of writing that can be shared with colleagues, and pursue your own writing in an exciting and supportive online community of teachers and writers. The MA in Teaching Writing Program is offered at Johns Hopkins University.

Overview

Teachers of all grades, from kindergarten to college, will encounter student writing at some level. It’s perhaps more important than ever to help learners of all ages develop skills and good habits related to the written word: The ability to write well and communicate clearly is valuable for success in nearly any profession today.

Designed for educators of any discipline, the MA in Teaching Writing program at Johns Hopkins University builds on your existing teaching and writing skills while adding new methods to your toolbox. You’ll discover ideas for integrating writing into your classroom, find innovative ways to engage your students, and hone your own writing skills in the process.

What You Will Learn: Teaching Writing

Our program is rooted in helping your students through every stage of the writing process, from pre-writing to publishing. In addition to your core Teaching Writing course, you will explore how to read like a writer and dive deeper into teaching genres with classes such as:

  • The Power of Story: Teaching and Writing Narrative
  • Teaching Creative Writing
  • Teaching and Writing Nonfiction
  • Teaching Argument

Created with our diverse graduate students in mind, our selection of Teaching Writing electives includes a range of genres, grade levels, and teaching formats. Examples include:

  • Teaching Writing Online
  • Teaching Reluctant Writers
  • Teaching Composition at the Community College Level
  • Writing for Young Readers
  • Writing Across the Curriculum

Live the Writing Life: Summer Residency

Our residency program brings our community together for seven to 10 days of sessions, workshops, readings, outings, receptions, and more. You’ll design and present mini-lessons, get feedback on your work, and have time to yourself to get personal writing done.

Sometimes our writing residencies are integrated with the JHU science writing and creative writing master’s programs, giving you a chance to connect to even more writers and faculty members.
