Literacy is essential to learning, multidimensional in nature, and influenced by linguistic, psychological, and sociocultural factors. We prepare and support teachers and researchers to better understand pressing literacy issues and to meet the literacy needs of every student. Students in our program develop knowledge in the areas of teaching reading, writing, spelling and vocabulary development.
