Where Theory and Practice Meet
Through courses that help you understand the principles of language and literacy learning, you’ll begin to interpret literacy as the variety of ways in which people think, learn, and communicate through reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Our program emphasizes the utilization of current research in word recognition, comprehension, vocabulary, and expressive writing, as well as the development of diverse learners.
Extensive Field Experiences
You’ll have opportunities to incorporate the application of the content you’re learning in the classroom out in the field, and often in your school or classroom if you are a practicing teacher. You will also complete a culminating Clinical Literacy Practicum, in which you’ll engage in supervised, long-term individualized tutoring with children who have literacy difficulties.
