Reading Endorsement Certificate
The Reading Endorsement Certificate is designed for education-major undergraduate and graduate students, recent graduates, and in-service teachers who aim to develop strong, culturally relevant/sustaining teaching practices that support diverse students in their multi-literacy development, and who wish to position themselves strategically for employment as literacy leaders.
The Reading Endorsement Certificate coursework aligns with the coursework required for seeking a graduate-level Reading Endorsement in the State of Ohio, but does not guarantee Ohio endorsement. The coursework may also apply toward the completion of an M.Ed. in Literacy and Language. The Reading Endorsement Certificate consists of a five-course sequence that provides the very latest in research and expertise for working with emergent and striving readers and includes a supervised practicum.
