Collaborative Reading Education And Distance Education
Oregon's Teacher Standards and Practices Commission (TSPC) in 2003 added Reading/Literacy to the list of endorsement programs that require completion of an approved program of study. If you wish to add a reading endorsement to your teaching license, you must complete an approved program of study, complete a school- or district-based internship, and pass the Praxis II reading examination.Twelve Oregon colleges/universities have reading endorsement programs approved by TSPC.
