Carroll Community College Offers MSDE-Approved
Reading Courses for Teachers
In fall 2005 and spring/summer 2006, Carroll Community College will offer reading courses for teachers seeking early childhood/elementary certification and renewal, and secondary certification and renewal. The courses are approved by the Maryland State Department of Education.
Faculty will offer classroom instruction, project-based assignments, individual conferencing, and online instruction.
The reading courses are approved by MSDE to meet the new reading course work requirements for teachers. They may be eligible for reimbursement by Carroll County Public Schools if the courses are required for initial certification or certification renewal.
For early childhood/elementary certification and renewal, courses include Processes and Acquisition of Reading and Materials for Teaching Reading. For secondary certification and renewal, courses include Teaching Reading in the Content Area, Part 1 and Teaching Reading in the Content Area, Part II.
In addition, Carroll offers courses for conditional teachers completing their MSDE certification. They include Educational Psychology, Special Education, Effective Teaching Methodology: Secondary Methods, and Assessment in Education.
