Field Experience / Practicum

Most graduate reading courses require field experiences involving literacy activities with students, usually accomplished in the teacher's own classroom and school or community. If you are not teaching, convenient field placements are available. Practicum is the capstone course.

All graduate students are required to take a practicum, EDU 717, Practicum in Reading or EDU 727, Advanced Practicum in Reading. Students design and implement a variety of reading projects which involve faculty, parents, students, and the community in relevant, evidence-based best practice literacy activities.
