Reading Education

Auburn’s Reading Education program prepares you for a successful career in reading instruction. You’ll work directly with faculty who helped develop the Alabama Reading Initiative (ARI). In our program, you’ll gain the knowledge and skills you need to help struggling readers succeed!

Our alumni work in many different positions and areas:

  • School and/or School System Reading Specialists
  • Regional Literacy Coaches
  • University/College Faculty
  • State Reading Initiatives Development and Implementation
  • Innovative Educational Leaders in Schools
  • Reading Instruction Leaders and Teacher Trainers

We believe all children should have the skills to learn through reading, and to enjoy what only reading can bring!

We’re ready to help you reach your goals. Contact us for more information!
