Secondary & Middle Grades Education

Reading Endorsement

Program Description

Departments within the Bagwell College of Education offer graduate courses in literacy to give classroom teachers additional training to meet the literacy needs of students at the early childhood, middle childhood, and secondary school levels. Courses which apply to Georgia’s Reading Endorsement for classroom teachers focus on understanding readers  and the reading process, linking assessment and instruction, and using instructional strategies in specific content courses.

Successful completion of the following three courses certifies teachers in reading at the grade-level(s) of their current teaching certificates. The program presupposes  certification at least at the bachelor’s level.
