Reading Teacher License (#316)

Develop Expertise Through a Sequence of Focused Courses

The Reading Teacher License program is aligned with the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction Content Standards, the International Reading Association and the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) guidelines. This professional learning community model offers a supportive and interactive environment for current classroom teachers to broaden their understanding and skills related to research-based reading assessment, evaluation and instruction.

Graduate students who have an initial Wisconsin teaching license and two years of full-time teaching experience can qualify for an additional license as K-12 Reading Teachers by completing Carroll's Reading Teacher sequence. Students seeking the #316 license must earn a grade of B or higher in each reading course and must have an overall minimum reading course grade point average of 3.00. Successful completion of this 18-credit program and the Foundations of Reading exam lead to a Wisconsin Reading Teacher License (#316).

Credits from the Reading License Program can be applied to a Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction. Candidates completing a M.Ed. program may be eligible for financial aid.
