REA 860 - Leadership School Literacy Program

Semester Hours: 3

This course enables literacy specialists and administrators to collaboratively investigate various methods for organizing and evaluating reading programs. Assessing literacy materials, programs, and state and national standards for the elementary and secondary classroom is a central focus. Working with struggling readers enables graduate students to explore comprehension as a meaning-making process and study ways to increase parental involvement. A 10-hour tutoring or supervising experience with teachers, parents, and administrators is required. Prerequisite: Minimum of one other reading specialist course.
