Specialist in Education (Ed.S.)


Educational Leadership


Reading is a basic skill that is fundamental to nearly any course a student encounters in his academic career. The teaching of such an important skill as been a subject of controversy for many years; hence, many programs have been initiated, some a failure, some a success. No subject has been more philosophized or argued about or experimented with than the teaching of reading. Some students have succeeded no matter what the program--and still others have had great difficulties.
