The Literacy Clinic is a collaborative learning site that focuses on the preparation of future teacher leaders and researchers. We prepare beginning teachers to teach literacy and to integrate literacy instruction within and across content areas. We also prepare experienced teachers to become literacy specialists or literacy coaches through our Literacy Specialist program (K-12). Teachers in our Literacy Clinics provide reading and writing assessment and instruction to children, adolescents and adults in the community.
Our Literacy Clinic/s have transformed over time from a face-to-face University-based clinic that prepares practicing educators to become literacy specialists to school based literacy clinics that prepare pre-service & in-service educators and, now, includes an online Literacy Clinic that holds the potential to reach educators beyond our usual catchment area.
