Literacy is the foundation of all learning. A student who can read confidently, comprehend fully, and write clearly opens doors to worlds of discovery in science, math, literature, and history. Adults who struggle to read and write are locked out of better-paying jobs and hindered in their personal development. As a graduate student in the Language and Literacy (L&L) Program, you will learn how to use research-based practices to positively impact the lives of learners of all ages. The core strength of the L&L Program is our comprehensive approach to literacy from the combined perspectives of research, policy, and practice. As an L&L student, you will learn what neuroscience can tell us about dyslexia; how to conduct an appropriate and accurate literacy assessment in diverse urban schools; and how to develop a literacy intervention plan that engages learners, K-12 in their own success.
