Success in reading is one of the most crucial goals of students and their teachers. The Reading Certificate Program is designed to assist the teacher in developing additional expertise in the teaching of reading.
Upon completion of the program, candidates will be eligible for the Reading Certificate offered by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing. This program may be taken alone or as a specialization within a master's degree program.
This program prepares teachers to assess reading skills and provide instruction in response to these assessments. Reading certificate holders are also authorized to develop, implement, and adapt curriculum, and assist colleagues at the grade levels authorized by their prerequisite teaching credential.
A hybrid model is offered for all four courses in this program. Classes will meet 60% face-to-face and 40% online.
