The Department of Teacher Education offers an undergraduate PreK-4 Reading Minor designed to prepare future teachers in scientifically-based research, reading disorders, and literacy issues for PreK-4 grades. 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 you to complete 5 additional courses that will be offered in a block. The block of 5 courses is offered each summer (term 3 and part of term 4), fall and spring semesters. The courses must be taken together in order to earn the minor before graduating with your Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood/Elementary Education (PreK-4).
