RL 516 Overview
Guidelines are provided for supporting reading specialist candidates through the supervision and leadership of K-12 literacy programs in school systems. Students will focus on: determining district literacy needs, selecting sound instructional materials and practices, developing and leading staff development, and establishing accountability mechanisms to monitor a literacy program’s effectiveness. Students will construct a professional development plan to prepare for their personal growth as future literacy professionals. This course includes a practicum experience in each student’s school or district, where candidates engage in literacy leadership experiences under the supervision of a reading specialist and a University supervisor.
