Program Overview

Cardinal Stritch University has a 75-year history of leading literacy efforts and supporting educators in Southeast Wisconsin. The 1316 Reading Teacher (PK-12) Licensure is a 20-credit graduate-level program offered through the Department of Language and Literacy. The coursework is intended to prepare teachers to provide focused and intensive reading instruction for children, especially those who struggle with literacy development in grades PK-12. Teachers can immediately apply the knowledge and skills gained from their coursework to their present classrooms, or in teacher roles that support students through reading interventions.

This program provides an in-depth study of research and practice in literacy with other PK-12 teachers in the metro Milwaukee Area. The coursework and sequence are designed for working teachers: classes are taught one night per week for one year, and candidates complete one semester of practicum work as their capstone learning experience.

Earning the 1316 licensure allows you to make a difference in students’ lives by learning ways to support literacy skills in all grade levels and content areas PK-12.
