About

The Reading Specialist and Supervisor program of Rutgers University is designed for individuals who wish to receive the Reading Specialist Certification along with a Supervisor’s certificate to work as a reading/literacy specialist, coach, basic skills teacher, or supervisor in public and private schools grades K through 12.

Overview

Description

In order to be eligible for the Reading Specialist/Supervision certificates, program graduates must have an initial New Jersey teaching certification with two years of full-time experience as a classroom teacher to be eligible for Reading Specialist certification and three years to be eligible for the Supervisor certification.

The Reading Specialist and Supervisor program of Rutgers University is designed to enable students to initiate new programs, evaluate curriculum, design assessment, engage other teachers in professional development, and be able to act as a leader in the school. These individuals will be able to plan programs for children of differing abilities and diverse cultural backgrounds. These students should also be able to foster a vision of literacy learning as an active social process in which students become engaged readers with strategies for independent reading, and the motivation to read for pleasure and for information.

The program requires 33 credits of study. Students will develop a broad understanding of literacy issues by taking core courses on the development of literacy, the diagnosis and remediation of reading problems, curriculum development and supervision of literacy programs. Students will also study theory and research in the field. Additional credits include courses dealing with strategies for literacy instruction, with administration and supervision, and with learning cognition and development.
