English Studies for Teachers

English Studies for Teachers is directed toward secondary English teachers interested in joining vibrant ongoing discussions in the field of English education, with the ultimate goal of improving their practice as English teachers. Students have the opportunity to study general issues in English education, learn about a broad range of pedagogical and content-based issues across multiple areas of English studies (literature, writing, language study), and focus on a particular area of interest. As a culmination of the program, students participate in a year-long teacher research course in which they learn research methodologies designed for classroom teachers and carry out their own study. Click here for a program brochure.
