The Literacy Education program of Rutgers University is designed for teachers working in literacy education at any grade level or for those who are interested in working in literacy education in contexts that do not require certification.

  • articulate their visions of themselves as teachers;
  • identify and critique the assumptions that undergird their vision;
  • become critically familiar with competing visions;
  • develop instructional strategies that will help them enact their visions; and
  • engage in the kind of reflective inquiry that is an essential characteristic of an effective teacher.
