Master of Education in Curriculum & Instruction / Adolescent Literacy
Help students struggling with reading comprehension by earning a MEd in Curriculum & Instruction: Adolescent Literacy from Concordia University-Portland. This degree program—which can be completed in one year, fully online—prepares you to address adolescent literacy, an ongoing challenge in our society, in grades six through 12. Nearly seven out of every ten 8th graders are working below the proficient level in reading comprehension, and even high school students with average reading ability are unprepared for future workplace and postsecondary literacy demands. You'll study everything from intervention strategies to essential elements to teach reading to become a leader in developing and supporting adolescent literacy in schools, districts, and community-based organizations. If you love reading and want to help students experience this joy, this program is for you.
