Earn the licensure to make a difference in literacy. We’ve designed our program with a special focus on instructional leadership, collaboration and expertise in the national English and Language Arts academic standards to allow teachers to add a reading specialist endorsement to their license.
Our program intentionally balances pedagogical theories and implementable practices to create a comprehensive approach to training literacy specialists. The program is grounded in the five components of literacy as set forth by the National Reading Panel.
The need to increase literacy in schools has never been more pressing. When you finish our program, we expect you’ll pass the praxis—just like every single one of our graduates—and go on to help readers of any age succeed through mentoring and coaching.
