reading endorsement classes for teachers
Teachers seeking new opportunities in the field of education now have an accelerated summer option, offered by Bluffton University, to complete their coursework for an Ohio Department of Education reading endorsement.
Licensed teachers enrolled in the program will take two classes in June, two classes in July and can complete their clinical practicum in the fall at their own school. Classes are offered online or through Zoom videoconferencing. Once classes and the practicum are complete, program participants are eligible to take the Ohio Assessments for Educators.
“This program is designed for working teachers who are ready to transition out of
a traditional classroom to working with students who need additional resources,” said
Dr. Amy Mullins, director of graduate programs in education. “Our reading endorsement
program is rigorous, cost effective, and convenient and truly prepares teachers to
develop their knowledge base so they can help children of all ages.”
Bluffton will also offer classes in summer 2023 for teachers seeking an intervention specialist license.
After teachers complete the reading endorsement or intervention specialist program, they have the option to continue their studies at Bluffton and earn a Master of Arts in Education with six additional core classes, also offered online or via Zoom. The MAEd program has several start dates each year, which gives teachers the flexibility to determine when they are able to take on extra coursework.
