Before they can run, students must learn how to walk. And before they can understand difficult content for a Regents-level course, students need to know how to read and write.
Reading, writing, and effective communication apply to every single discipline. Literacy isn’t just a field for reading specialists; it’s a marketable teaching skill, one that’s incredibly useful in helping students decipher tests.
Our Literacy Department prides itself on the personal approach faculty members take with graduate students. We place a special emphasis on preparing teachers to work with children of all reading and writing abilities.
