The goal of the program is to prepare certified teachers who work effectively to enhance the language and literacy development of all students in a variety of educational settings.
We offer courses that strengthen teachers’ understanding of theory, research, assessment, and practice within culturally and linguistically diverse settings.
In addition to working in our reading program, many of our faculty are involved in other activities that might interest you.
