The Third Grade Reading Guarantee Law (ORC 3313.608) requires that all students are reading at grade level by the third grade. It also established new credentials that are required for any teacher providing the daily reading instruction for students affected by the Third Grade Reading Guarantee. One option for acquiring a set of approved credentials will be a passing score on a rigorous test of principles of scientifically research-based reading instruction, Praxis 5203 Teaching Reading: Elementary Education with a qualifying score of 162.
The highly-qualified staff at the Center for Literacy can help prepare K-3 teachers for the Third Grade Reading Guarantee with an 8-week blended learning workshop. Our instructors have direct experience with classroom and online instruction and professional development.
