Literacy Education addresses the promotion of literacy, with specific emphasis on reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Urban literacy issues and research pertaining to children living at the poverty level are of particular interest to our literacy education faculty. The program of study is designed around the International Literacy Association (ILA)/National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) standards that address what literacy professionals need to know and what they are able to do. These standards emphasize reflective professionals who have proficiency in three broad categories: (1) knowledge and beliefs about literacy, (2) instruction and assessment, and (3) organizing and enhancing a literacy program.
