Literacy Instruction and New Website
Posted Sep 13, 2021
Each summer, Otterbein’s education faculty, along with their graduate students who are pursuing reading endorsements, lead a unique, hands-on reading clinic. Teachers add to their teaching expertise with new reading techniques, expert coaching and mentorship, and opportunities to engage with the community.
The strong focus on the science of reading in Ohio’s recently updated reading plan (Ohio’s Plan to Raise Literacy Achievement) has long been a part of Otterbein’s literacy instruction. Otterbein’s literacy experts embrace the imperative for direct, explicit reading instruction — while also highlighting the necessity of engaging readers with meaningful texts.
If you have not seen it yet, please explore the Education Department’s revamped website, and click on the Graduate Education Programs page. Here you will discover how Graduate Education at Otterbein is making a difference, with details about our Master of Arts in Education (MAE) and Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) programs. Our MAE program is for licensed teachers who wish to earn their master’s degree, a reading endorsement or a TESOL endorsement. Our MAT program is for career changers. Do you want to become a teacher? If so, we would like to help you get there.
