Sexton Mountain Elementary School, Library

Join Lewis & Clark’s Reading Intervention Endorsement Cohort in Beaverton this fall for Language Acquisition and Development, meeting at Sexton Mountain Elementary School. Our Reading Intervention Endorsement Program applies a dynamic view of literacy to reading and writing instruction in schools, building upon the belief that language—in all its richness of form and function—is the foundation from which effective literacy evolves.

Upcoming Course in Cohort Sequence

READ 625 Practicum I: Assessing Reading Strategies (Spring 2017): Seminar practicum for classroom teachers and reading specialists at all grade levels. Topics include a language orientation for diagnosing reading problems, diverse causes and correlates of reading difficulties, assessment procedures in reading, and strategies to facilitate readers’ improvement. Each participant assesses a reader, develops a profile of personal strategies, and designs and implements an instructional plan to help the reader develop effective, efficient reading strategies responsive to individual differences, interests, and developmental levels. Participants consider reading issues for students at all four license levels (early childhood, elementary, middle level, and high school).

This course will meet at Sexton Mountain Elementary School and is offered at a special cohort-based off-campus tuition rate.
