Student reading at home

Welcome! The Master Reading Teacher (MRT) certificate consists of only five courses. It is a completely online graduate program and it leads to teaching licensure (after your initial licensure). The program is synchronous and you will be able to see and hear the professor and class members. The C&I/Reading M.Ed. is mostly online, or hybrid. The five MRT courses are part of this curriculum and instruction master’s program. You can also find UTB Reading and Literacy graduate programs on Facebook and Twitter because we are very interested in Digital Literacy.

I am a developmental college reading instructor and I am able to use what I learned in this program to redesign our curriculum incorporating best practices in order to prepare my students for academic college work.
