Literacy, Language and Culturally Responsive Teaching Program

Welcome! University of Colorado Denver’s Literacy, Language and Culturally Responsive Teaching (LLCRT) Program offers degree programs, endorsements and certificates at the graduate and professional levels that will prepare you to make a positive difference in the literacy learning of your students. The LLCRT Program specializes in literacy education for all students, including English language learners and English education in secondary schools. The program is distinguished by faculty members who are committed to using effective teaching tools, data, experience, technology and personal reflection to enhance student learning. We specialize in educating teachers who work with students from a broad range of culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds and needs. Our students gain in-depth knowledge including effective literacy teaching methods that build on students’ languages, dialects, cultures and real-world experiences.

This program also has continuing education master’s level classes that build on one another and can be considered a pathway to certificates, endorsements and degrees. The classes are also available to community members as non-degree students. These classes are taught by expert faculty and influential members of the Denver education community who provide information and skills that are readily applicable and culturally responsive.

The program is fully accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) and nationally recognized by the International Reading Association. Your training will give you the knowledge and skills to promote the standards recommended by the International Reading Association, TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) and WIDA’s English language proficiency experts.
