Literacy Education Program Description
The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (P.B.C.) in Literacy Education seeks to bolster elementary and secondary teachers’ literacy skills so they can implement more robust literacy strategies within their classrooms and be more competent in diagnosing and addressing students’ literacy gaps to enhance student success. The intended audience for this certificate is elementary and secondary teachers who want to be more effective in their current classrooms. The Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (P.B.C.) in Literacy Education is structured to meet the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) requirements for adding a “Reading Teacher” endorsement to a teacher’s professional certification. It does not prepare teachers to become a reading specialist.
