Program Description:

The Master of Education in Language Literacy Education is a 36-hour program designed to prepare teachers to provide reading and literacy leadership in their school districts. The Language and Literacy Education program is undergirded by the philosophy that language and literacy learning is a continuous process for becoming a responsible, productive member of society. Such learning is fostered in interactive environments where students are encouraged to take risks, both process and product are emphasized, affective and cognitive growth are inseparably linked, background experiences are valued, literate individuals model effective use of language and literature, and childrenÆs needs are respected. An environment rich in opportunities to read, write, and speak fosters lifetime habits related to a zest for learning, critical thinking, and cultural and global understandings.
