Reading and math have long been regarded as the two most foundational areas of the K–6 curriculum. Teachers who can help students experience early success in these critical areas provide a jump-start to later success, not only in school, but also in the world beyond the classroom. Based on standards of both the International Reading Association (IRA) and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards, this unique specialization helps you provide the best possible foundation in these important subject areas.
The reading courses in this program have been updated to reflect the technology-oriented literacy landscape of the 21st century and provide you with the latest research and strategies to maximize literacy learning and achievement. The math courses help you to teach for conceptual understanding, so that all students become strong mathematical thinkers and problem-solvers.
