Reading Endorsement


Program Overview

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.
