Educators can distinguish themselves as certified Reading Specialists by completing the practicum and PRAXIS Reading exam. Putting that coursework to real use with English Language Learners (ELL) or students of special needs comes under the direct supervision of RMU instructors. Completing the practicum provides an opportunity to design suitable literacy programs through testing and diagnosis for individuals or groups of students within the public education schooling levels K-12.
3. Instructional Technology Specialist Certification (ITSC)
Technology touches every aspect of our lives today. RMU's preparation program designed to address the need for certified Instructional Technology Specialists within the public education system of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania is fit for all levels of K-12 schooling.
Applicants for the ITSC may begin working on their initial teaching certificate under the advise and through permission of RMU instructors and should already possess valid Pennsylvania Instructional I or II Teaching Certification. Otherwise, further course requirements may be completed. Educators fulfilling all requirements are able to implement comprehensive instructional technology, planning, integration and establish partnerships, all geared toward technological priorities.
Learners possess that amazing facility for change and growth while educators facilitating their needs are empowered with the capacity to change lives in far-reaching ways. Pennsylvania Teaching Certificates sourced through RMU is an amazing way to make that happen.
