Reading Endorsement


Available at the Milledgeville Campus 
 
Endorsement programs at the graduate level are offered to teachers wishing to add areas of expertise to their current State of Georgia Teacher Certification. The Reading Endorsement Program is designed for any P-12 teacher or supplemental reading teacher who is interested in learning how to better meet the needs of the students in his/her classroom. The program addresses the competencies required by the Professional Standards Commission's Georgia Reading Endorsement. It emphasizes classroom application while addressing the following three strands:
1.      Understanding Readers and the Reading Process
2.      Linking Literacy Assessment and Instruction
3.      Using Instructional Strategies in the Content Areas across Pre-K through grade 12

Course work is offered in a blended format.  Classes meet some Saturdays in Milledgeville with the rest of the work being done online.

Application Deadlines
July 1 -    Fall Semester
Nov 15 - Spring Semester
April 1 -   Maymester and Summer Semester
