Literacy Development and Instruction


Specialization leading to a Master of Education  degree.

(34 to 35 credits)

The specialization in literacy development and instruction meets the needs of teachers, clinicians, and others who provide literacy-related services to children or adults. The program also is of interest to those who wish to study reading and writing as language processes. Within this program, the acquisition and development of literate behaviors are viewed as inherent components of language learning in general, including second-language acquisition.

A wide range of available course offerings make this program attractive to individuals with diverse interests and career goals. Students may pursue concentrations leading to endorsement in Reading, Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL), or Bilingual Education on an existing Ohio teaching license. There is a fourth concentration for non-school personnel with an interest in Adult Literacy.
