Join Lewis & Clark’s Reading Intervention Endorsement Cohort in Beaverton this fall for Literature for Children and Adolescents, 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 613 Literature for Children and Adolescents (Fall 2017): Participants will explore the use of literature for children and adolescents as a healthy, growing body of work, and as an important resource for teachers. Participants will investigate available literature, specific authors and illustrators, and their processes of composing. Participants will also learn methods to incorporate a rich diet of literary experiences into their students’ learning environment, as well as ways of supporting meaningful learning experiences responsive to individual differences, interests, developmental levels, and cultural contexts.

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