Through discussions, workshops, and presentations, candidates in Reading Part 1 develop their capacity to help students from kindergarten through grade 12 learn to read, write, and learn. Candidates begin by studying the research about how we learn to read. Then candidates apply that knowledge to plan effective literacy assessment and instruction.
