Strong literacy skills are essential building blocks for students to succeed in school, and in all aspects of their lives.

The Reading Literacy specialization serves to strengthen a teacher's competency, making them extremely valuable in the area of reading proficiency.

This program prepares experienced teachers to assess reading literacy, as well as develop, plan and implement reading programs to assist the diverse needs and abilities of students. Courses can be completed online or in the traditional classroom setting.
