Reading, Literacy Learning, and Language

The Lesley reading, literacy learning, and language programs for educators focus on responding to the diverse literacy needs of K-12 students.  An emphasis is placed on the following: connecting reading and writing across the curriculum, connecting assessment and instruction to inform ongoing teaching and to guide students' learning, and meeting the needs of English language learners. The power of narrative and informational literature to teach reading and to model writing across the disciplines is evident in each program option.
