Let Language Lead Your Learning and Inspire Your Students

Magnifying glass over the word language in the dictionary, representing focal point of all Love of Language Certificate courses for K-12 educatorsThe Love of Language Certificate courses are designed to rekindle an appreciation of the beauty and power of language. This certificate program allows you to select individual language or literature courses that spark a personal interest, ranging from writing and grammar (yes, grammar!) to literature and poetry genres or significant authors. Elective courses in this program are guided by audio content, published by the Recorded Books Modern Scholar, in a journey that begins by studying and reflecting on language and literature and concludes with independent writing, research or curriculum projects.  After taking six elective courses, consider completing the certificate program with the capstone course where you will build a culminating project that encompasses all of the Love of Language courses that you have taken.

Who Should Attend

Grade K-12 teachers that want to develop a greater appreciation for language topics, literature genres and/or certain authors' works and share this rekindled or new found interest with their students.
