Reading Intervention Endorsement

The Reading Intervention Endorsement Program applies a dynamic view of literacy to reading and writing instruction in schools. The program's theoretical base owes much to the work of Donald Murray, Linda Rief, Stephanie Harvey, Ellin Keene, Stephen Krashen, Donald Graves, Louise Rosenblatt, and others who believe that reading, writing, listening, and speaking are all language processes. Language users interact with text—oral, written, and visual—to construct meaning and create meaningful stories.
