Reading I, Endorsement

Requirements

The Reading Endorsement Program (REP) is designed to prepare teachers to be responsive to current scientific-reading research for teaching reading and to become advocates for reading research in the educational setting. Coursework is designed to address historical and political foundations of reading education and methods and materials for engaging students in challenging educational experiences. The UVU endorsement program is intended to provide educators with an opportunity to develop, expand, and integrate their knowledge of cognition, content, pedagogy, and cultural perspectives in their curriculum. Completed program coursework qualifies students to apply to the Utah State Office of Education for an endorsement to their current Utah Teaching License. USBE Education Endorsements are provided through the school district. UVU will accept up to 12 endorsement credits to apply toward a UVU M.Ed. Emphasis program.
