Education: Endorsements

Degree Awarded:  Licensure

Requirements for this Major:

Reading Endorsement

The reading endorsement at Lake Erie College includes twelve (12) semester credits of instruction and a three (3) semester credit clinical experience where candidates will have authentic experiences in helping students to learn to read and to appreciate literacy. Helping students learn to communicate - reading, writing, listening, speaking and visual literacy - is one of the greatest challenges facing teachers today, especially given the linguistic and cultural diversity of today's classrooms and the rapid changes in technological advancements. It is the intent of Lake Erie College's P-12 Reading Endorsement program to better enable our candidates to accept and meet this contemporary challenge to create learning climates where literacy flourishes while empowering the diverse array of students to function competently as literate adults in the twenty-first century.
