Teachers encouraged to join CU Become a Reading Specialist to learn about additional certification

Certified teachers who are interested in earning an additional qualification to become a reading specialist are encouraged to attend “CU Become a Reading Specialist,” a virtual workshop slated for Monday, October 2, at 5 p.m. This free, specialized information session, presented by the Cameron University Department of Education, will cover the admission standards and curriculum for earning a Master of Education degree in Reading.

To register, go to https://www.cameron.edu/education/events/cu-be-a-reading-specialist to receive a secure link to the Zoom presentation.

“There are countless certified teachers who want to improve their practice or who may want to specialize in the teaching of reading,” says Dr. Stacie Garrett, chair of the CU Department of Education. “Cameron’s M.Ed. in Reading is a great choice for those individuals. The degree curriculum also includes instruction on how to coach and mentor others in the field, resulting in mentor teachers who can model and train more inexperienced teachers.”

By pursuing a master’s degree in reading, students will experience the preparation necessary to serve as reading specialists in Oklahoma public schools. The program provides pedagogy in the teaching of reading and specialized knowledge for working with children who find reading difficult. It will also prepare reading specialists to review and develop reading curricula for the schools in which they teach.
