K-12 Reading Specialist Endorsement

This 100% online program prepares candidates who already hold teaching certificates in Michigan for an additional K-12 endorsement. This endorsement provides teachers with specialized literacy knowledge and skills that go beyond that of initial teacher preparation. Coursework strengthens student understanding of literacy content in curriculum; instruction and assessment; and how to organize and implement school and district reading programs and essential leadership, coaching, and core teaching practices. Students must successfully complete all coursework and take and pass the MTTC (092) Reading Specialist Test in order to be eligible to add this endorsement to their Michigan teaching license.

The 27-credit-hour program sets graduates up for higher pay and may ensure job security.

** Michigan teachers can take up to 18 credits at 50% off with no fees through the MI Teachers Deserve a Break discount program! **
