MASTER’S PROGRAMS IN LITERACY Each 30-credit-hour program prepares master literacy teachers to work as classroom teachers, specialists, literacy coaches, or program coordinators. The two programs are divided by age range: [[MSED in Literacy: Birth-Grade 6]] This program is for students with a bachelor’s degree and certification in Elementary Education (Early Childhood Education or Childhood Education). [[MSED in Literacy: Grades 5-12]] This program is for students with a bachelor’s degree and certification in Secondary Education (Middle Childhood Education or Adolescent Education). [[The Saint Rose Difference]] Literacy courses focus on reading and writing as processes and the various factors that impact an individual’s literacy ability. Graduates of this program are proficient in determining the strengths and weaknesses of individual readers and writers, and implementing instruction tailored to their needs. Candidates benefit from courses that combine theory and research with field experience. Dedicated and experienced faculty members are dedicated to developing skilled teachers who are sensitive to students’ literacy abilities and development. They make themselves available and accessible to graduate students at times that meet the students’ needs. For the convenience of working teachers, most classes are scheduled in the evening and during the summer. Students are required to teach in clinical and school settings. They work with children who struggle with reading and writing due to socio-cultural, linguistic and academic diversity. They also have opportunities to provide professional development and work on grants. The program meets the requirements for literacy specialist in New York State and follows the Standards for Literacy Professionals established by the International Literacy Association (former International Reading Association) in 2010. The literacy program has maintained accreditation by the International Literacy Association since 2003.
