All participants must be fully-licensed teachers who are currently engaged in classroom teaching. The program bases course content and learning experiences on the student's work as a classroom teacher and includes assignments that teachers will carry out in their own classrooms.

The Master's Degree program is aligned with National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) core propositions.  In addition, it includes coursework focused on pedagogical content proficiencies related to teaching Reading-Language Arts.  This design will allow teachers to receive advanced professional preparation consistent with NBPTS principles and supportive of achieving NBPTS Certification in Early and Middle Childhood/Literacy:  Reading-Language Arts.
