Reading Endorsement Program

Our Online Programs

Reading Endorsement Program
The Reading Endorsement Program at Lake Erie College includes fifteen (15) semester hours of instruction, with classroom-based fieldwork integrated throughout the program. Helping students learn to communicate—reading, writing, listening, speaking and visual literacy—is one of the greatest challenges facing teachers, especially given the linguistic and cultural diversity of today's classroom. Courses in the program fulfill requirements for the graduate reading endorsement (P-12). The program aligns with the International Reading Association (IRA) standards; the guidelines set forth by the Ohio Board of Regents; and include the methods, strategies and techniques recommended for recognizing and teaching students diagnosed with Dyslexia.

Program Benefits

The hybrid course delivery accommodates the schedules of busy teachers. The collaborative nature of the program ensures high quality, accessibility, and regular availability of courses. The program also aligns with the International Reading Association (IRA) standards and guidelines set forth by the Ohio Board of Regents.

Program Goal
The goal of the hybrid course of study and Reading Endorsement program is to improve the reading, writing, listening, speaking and visual literacy abilities of students in Ohio's schools.
