Reading and Literacy Education
master of education (m.ed.)
The graduate reading program consists of a series of courses and related practicum experiences designed to help classroom teachers and resource room specialists increase knowledge and skill as teachers of literacy.
The program is designed to enable candidates with at least one year of teaching to meet Massachusetts licensure standards for Teacher of Reading. The program conforms to the guidelines of the International Reading Association.
The Program of Studies consists of foundation courses, courses in language and literacy, and practica experiences as a teacher of reading.
A classroom teaching license is normally required for admission into the program, as well as a year of teaching under such license.
Students should carefully plan programs in consultation with the program advisor to see that degree and licensure requirements are met. Classroom teachers must meet with the practicum director (Fran Loftus, 671-552-4206) to create a proposal to fulfill practicum requirements while remaining in their own classroom.
