For students seeking a baccalaureate degree in Elementary Education, an academic/professional concentration is required. The reading education concentration is comprised of 18 course hours in two strands Foundation and Assessment. A concentration in reading education best prepares teacher education candidates to provide evidence-based literacy instruction. This concentration focuses on the science of reading and the six components of the reading process: comprehension, oral language, phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, and vocabulary.
*Please note that only one course RDG 2000 does not require admission to the Teacher Education Program all the other courses require that you have been admitted into the School of Education’s Teacher Education Program prior to taking the course.
