Discover how to design, deliver, and assess developmentally appropriate and culturally responsive elementary reading and literacy instruction for students of diverse backgrounds and abilities.
Using the five pillars of reading—phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension—as a framework, you’ll examine specific strategies to engage preK–3 and intermediate (grades 4–6) readers as well as English language learners (ELLs) and struggling and gifted readers. Recognizing the emergence of “new literacies” and technology, this graduate certificate program provides tools for creating 21st-century literacy experiences that instill today’s students with a love of reading.
After the first course, you can take one course at a time, earn your degree faster by taking two courses at once, or choose a combination of the two throughout the program to fit your changing needs.
