Course

Reading Specialist

Reading Part 3 is designed to meet the professional needs of educators wishing to assume leadership responsibilities in literacy education.

Close attention is paid to both obstacles to schools' changing their literacy instructional practices and to approaches that facilitate schools to adopt instructional procedures and materials that improve students' reading, writing, and learning.
