Apply to be a Writing Ambassador!

The interdisciplinary Writing Ambassadors (WA) program provides K-12 classrooms with UCD undergraduate student interns from a range of majors, many of whom plan on becoming K-12 teachers themselves. While interning, the Ambassadors meet weekly with for instruction and support in the 197 class.  In addition to discussing various strategies for tutoring and teaching, we focus on developing content area literacies in conjunction with the Common Core Standards.  Ambassadors can work in any subject area in any grade, from pre-reading in kindergarten to high school chemistry, from math to social studies and can enroll for 1-4 units.  Our program is called Writing Ambassadors because we cover methods for helping students improve their reading and writing. Ambassadors can work with students individually, in small groups, and as whole classes. Visit the Writing Ambassadors page and complete the brief application to join us this fall!
