Graduate Reading Endorsement

Cedarville’s 16-credit, graduate-level Reading Endorsement adds an endorsement to an Ohio teaching license and qualifies teachers to provide focused reading instruction for students in grades K–12. It meets qualifications for many licenses to be recognized as a Highly Qualified Teacher (HQT) and satisfies the reading requirements under the Third-Grade Reading Guarantee. Course work from the endorsement may also be used toward teacher license renewal or as electives while pursuing your M.Ed. The Reading Endorsement can be completed in just one year, including online courses and field experiences.
