Reading and Language Arts (Master of Education)
The purpose of this program area is to prepare teachers and specialists in
the field of reading. Classroom teachers, reading specialists or consultants,
supervisors, administrators are responsible for developing programs which will
enable every student to attain their maximum proficiency in the use of reading
and language. To meet this end, several courses have been devised which focus
on classroom reading instruction and reading difficulties. Through the Reading
Clinic, students also have opportunities for laboratory experiences as well
as for research and study in reading, literature, and language arts.
Inquiries regarding this program should be addressed to Professor Marjorie Lipson.
