These degrees are intended for initially certified teachers interested in an advanced degree in teaching literacy to children from birth to grade 12. The content of the degree programs include extensive assessment training, field-based practicum, and a literacy capstone project of the students' choice.
Candidates enroll in course work related to child/adolescent literacy development, literacy theory, and pedagogical strategies for providing literacy intervention to struggling readers and writers. All of the courses strengthen the candidates' knowledge of the Four Pillars of Understanding -- Knowledge, Pedagogy, Diversity, and Professionalism; in turn, these Pillars support the educational process of effective planning, instructing, reflecting, and responding. Course work and instruction are rooted in a strong foundation of research-based practices and strategies, contextual factors that influence instruction, and standards for teaching and learning.
