Literacy

An integrated, theoretically grounded view of literacy.

The literacy program addresses the needs of students and education professionals in diverse communities. It involves rigorous scholarship and research, contextualized learning and service in school and community settings, and opportunities for critical reflection on the role of literacy in society and our responsibilities as educators.

This program is designed to enhance the professional preparation of classroom teachers as literacy specialists and to prepare them for leadership roles as campus or school district literacy program coordinators or directors. Completion of the program will lead to New York State certification as Literacy Specialist.
