Middle Grades Literacy Endorsement is Added to the Special Education License
The course requirements for the Middle Grades Literacy endorsement are included in the Special Education major and are not required in addition to the requirements of the major. Additional Middle School Subject Area Endorsements are available. The requirements for the Middle Grades Endorsements, set forth by the state, add value to the Special Education preparation by providing a content area endorsement to the special education license.
These courses include the 18 hours required by the state of Illinois for an endorsement in Middle Grades Literacy.
