Join Lewis & Clark’s Reading Intervention Endorsement Cohort in East Portland this spring for Language Acquisition and Development. Our Reading Intervention Endorsement coursework 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 620 Innovations in Reading (Fall 2017): This course will cover the organizing, managing, and evaluating both classroom and school-wide K-12 reading programs. Students will examine the textbook adoption process, participate in the development and use of a tool for evaluating reading texts, assess components of reading and writing programs, and learn to integrate reading and writing processes throughout the school grades to extend learners’ experiences and enhance their own and students’ capacities to solve literacy problems. This capstone course of the Reading Intervention program must be taken at the end of the sequence.

This hybrid course will meet at Jefferson High School in East Portland, and is offered at a special cohort-based off-campus tuition rate.
