The Reading, Curriculum and Instruction Online at the University of Nevada, Reno is focused on providing K-12 teachers with research-based courses designed to address the current needs of reading teachers in schools today with a particular emphasis on reading curriculum, reading instruction, and reading assessment to meet the needs of all students in today’s classrooms.


The Reading, Curriculum and Instruction Online program from University of Nevada, Reno provides opportunities to work with university instructors and other teachers in an online format that includes video conferences, model lessons, and a virtual reading clinic. The program’s focus on reading curriculum includes creating effective reading lessons and units based on student assessments and evaluating and adapting existing reading programs to meet student needs. Instructional practices related to guided reading instruction, comprehension, vocabulary, fluency, word study, and writing are also covered throughout the program. 


A strong focus on reading assessment is embedded in two virtual reading clinic courses centered on teaching reading to struggling readers. The coursework also meets the requirements for teachers to obtain the Nevada Reading Specialist endorsement. The comprehensive exam is designed to support teachers as they research a reading area of their choice and apply their knowledge to their own classroom and school.
