Summary

This article describes the development and design of an elementary masters degree program that focused on literacy teaching and learning. The Master of Education with a Concentration in Literacy program at Western Washington University was designed to be delivered on weekends during the academic year quarters and during the summer. The program taught candidates how to develop literacy-based curricula; understand and apply current literacy assessment and evaluation techniques; design and implement teacher research literacy projects; and understand the social, psychological, and philosophical theories related to literacy and child development. The program emphasized the development of teacher-researchers who could create their own knowledge and understanding of classroom practice. An analysis of teachers' research projects indicated that though they focused on a variety of literacy topics, all could be categorized in terms of learning processes. Surveys of participating teachers examined program strengths and weaknesses and areas for improvement. Overall, teachers were generally satisfied, though they had suggestions for improvement. The teachers liked the weekend format, the overall design, and the cohort model. Four appendixes contain the program evaluation forms. (Contains 16 references.) (SM)
