Endorsement Coursework Information

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. Wondering how you can benefit from earning a Reading Intervention Endorsement, or what to expect while in the cohort? Learn more

Upcoming Course in Cohort Sequence

READ 625 Assessing Reading Strategies (Spring 2019): This course serves as an exploration of reading assessment strategies. 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 levels.
