In addition, the minor strives to provide skills for developing curriculum and assessing, evaluating, and instructing students in reading, writing, speaking and listening.

The reading minor will require students to complete 5 additional courses that will be offered in a block. The block of 5 courses will be offered each summer (term 3 and part of term 4), fall and spring semesters. At this time, the courses must be taken together before graduation.
