Developmental Reading

Reading instruction prepares students for everyday life and for the future they envision in our society.  Our goal is to instill in teachers the importance of reading instruction to assist children to learn with a variety of methods and materials.


Our program prepares teachers as a Reading Specialist K-12 (Iowa Endorsement 176). The courses develop skills, knowledge and competencies needed for supervisory, curricular, and remedial teaching positions in reading, and also builds background for students who want to specialize in the area and eventually teach and/or conduct research at a college/university.
