Instructional Leadership Emphasis in Literacy Education (K-12)

The Educational Specialist in Instructional Leadership with an emphasis in Literacy Education is designed to train the student to provide support for elementary, middle, and high school reading specialists, literacy coaches, department chairs, and classroom teachers. The program will provide the student with skills needed instruct others on implementing literacy strategies in the classroom in order to not only become better readers, but apply the written word to the complexities of the world.  This degree is designed as an option for in-service teachers experienced in the teaching of literacy who want to pursue post-graduate studies to further their knowledge base in the field of literacy studies. Candidates will prepare for the roles and responsibilities of effective faculty and staff development leader, supervisor of reading specialists and literacy coaches, curriculum coordinator, and administrative team member. 

Although a Master of Arts + 30 hours is required prior to application; certification in K-12 Special Reading is not required.  Potential candidates for this program are expected to have extensive experience in teaching literacy.  It is also important to note that courses required by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education for the K-12 Special Reading certificate would not be accepted in lieu of the EdS Literacy Education Specialist Program.  This is a non-certification program.

For more information, please contact Dr. Rebecca Panagos at (636) 949-4959.

"Teaching and Leading as an Art and a Science"
The School of Education agrees that the general outcome of the teacher education program must be teaching professionals that believe and implement teaching as a blend of “Art” and “Science” as represented by the Beauty and Mechanism of the Spellmann Clock Tower… Teaching as an art because teaching is a craft that must be learned and applied in an authentic environment. Teaching as a science because it must be influenced by research and best practice for optimal student learning to be achieved.
