This program supports teachers who are interested in developing greater understanding and expertise in the teaching and learning of literacy. Students are eligible for a Reading Teacher K-12 endorsement from the State of Colorado. Some students enroll in the program in conjunction with their participation in a CU Boulder-sponsored professional development opportunity offered in collaboration with local school districts: Partners in Education (PIE).
