Georgia ONmyLINE Non-degree Reading Endorsement
Department of Middle and Secondary Education
The Department of Middle and Secondary Education offers online graduate courses in literacy that apply to the Georgia ONmyLINE non-degree Reading Endorsement for classroom teachers. These courses focus on three areas (a) understanding readers and the reading process, (b) linking assessment and instruction, and (c) using instructional strategies in specific content areas. The GOML non-degree Reading Endorsement is approved by the State of Georgia Professional Standards Commission.
The Georgia ONmyLINE non-degree Reading Endorsement program presupposes certification at least at the bachelor’s level. Successful completion of the Georgia ONmyLINE non-degree Reading Endorsement course work and a portfolio qualifies a person for the bachelor’s, master’s, or specialist level endorsement, depending on his or her current level of certification. This endorsement qualifies an individual to be considered “in field” in reading at the level of the base certificate. Students seeking only the non-degree GOML Reading Endorsement must be admitted to the graduate program in the College of Education as a non-degree GOML student. All courses in the Georgia ONmyLINE non-degree Reading Endorsement must be completed online through Georgia ONmyLINE; no other courses may apply.
