Reading LicensurePage address: http://ed.mnsu.edu/eec/programs/licensure/
The program is designed for teachers who already have an existing classroom teaching license and wish to deepen their knowledge of reading. Completion of the 18 credit program and the state licensure exam would make you eligible for the K-12 Reading Teacher licensure endorsement.
Students can begin the program any semester. We ask that students complete an application to Graduate Studies along with two recommendations (the form is on our website under admissions) as part of the admissions process. There is no exam required for admission.
The program is all online and done at the student's convenience. There is not a set time when you need to be online each week. We use readings, discussion, videos and applied assignments in the courses. There is a practicum that calls for students to do testing and tutoring of an individual student.
This on-line program provides students with knowledge and experience in best practices in reading instruction and assessment, as well as administration of reading programs. Students can emerge as leaders in reading improvement and meeting NCLB requirements in their districts. Admission to the College of Education's Literacy Program can be done as a degree-seeking student by being a part of a Master's program, licensure, or certificate .
