"To educate as the practice of freedom is a way of teaching that anyone can learn." - bell hooks The three credit graduate course "Teaching of Writing" prepares students in the MFA in Creative Writing Program to pursue teaching across a spectrum of possibilities. Together we consider practical classroom strategies alongside teaching theories such as critical pedagogy, antiracist pedagogy, feminist pedagogy, and other approaches that support creative and communal spaces for writers. Students leave the course with a packet of materials to use when applying for teaching positions and we strive to demystify every aspect of this career path. Students also craft original pedagogies, as we consider together what it means to be writers who teach.
