Reading Part 1

Through discussions, workshops, and presentations, candidates in Reading Part 1 develop their capacity to help students from kindergarten through grade 12 learn to read, write, and learn.

Candidates begin by studying the research about how we learn to read. Then candidates apply that knowledge to plan effective literacy assessment and instruction. They develop an increased capacity to select appropriate procedures and materials to help students learn to read and write individual words and to understand text. Candidates learn how to help students learn to express their thoughts and feelings when they speak, write, and create multimedia presentations.
