The online Master of Education in Literacy with emphases in Reading Specialist and ESL program provides K-12 educators with effective teaching methods and materials to teach English literacy to diverse English as Second Language (ESL) and English Language Learner (ELL) groups. The curriculum offers students the resources to adapt elementary or secondary lesson plans based on what they learn in their coursework, while also understanding and integrating cultural issues as part of their own instructional practice. Graduates will understand the English language as a system with language variation and cross-linguistic differences, understand the processes of first and second language development, and understand the development of bilingualism and bi-literacy.
