About

The mission of the Teacher Education with a Concentration in Literacy Education and Reading Program at University of North Carolina Greensboro is to prepare teacher leaders who advocate for and seek to integrate theory, research, and practice; engage in reflection, research, and professional collaborations; and offer culturally relevant, learner-centered opportunities.

Overview

There are two master’s level literacy programs in Teacher Education: 1) K-12 Literacy M.Ed. and 2) Reading Add-on Licensure. Dr. Melody Zoch coordinates the Reading Add-on program. She also co-coordinates the K-12 Literacy M.Ed. program with Dr. Amy Vetter. Typically, Dr. Zoch advises students who are elementary teachers while Dr. Vetter advises those who teach in the middle or secondary grades.

The Master of Education is a 36-hour program and the primary goal of the program is to prepare initially licensed teachers for “M” licensure as a K-12 Reading Specialist. Not only are teachers prepared to implement innovative research-based teaching strategies in their own classroom settings, but they are also expected to promote those practices among colleagues, administrators, and the community as a teacher leader. Master’s candidates are also expected to conduct teacher research and to present that research as part of the Triad Teacher as Researcher conference in the final spring semester of enrollment.
