Fieldwork plays an integral role, of which both the pre-practicum and practicum classes are components. You will complete 150 hours of supervised fieldwork, as part of the practicum, in two courses: Instructional Reading Clinic with Children (an intensive 6-week summer course) and Teacher Leadership Roles in Reading at the School Level.
Students pursuing the M.Ed. without licensure as a reading specialist may substitute two approved literacy electives in lieu of the Instructional Reading Clinic and one approved literacy elective in lieu of the course EDU 845: Teacher Leadership. Students electing this option must meet with the program coordinator to select the electives and complete the required course substitution forms.
