Full Description

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.

Delivery Format

The program is delivered primarily through Internet  

Campus Attendance Requirements

No campus visits.  All coursework and assignments conducted online.


This endorsement qualifies an individual to be considered "in field" in reading at the level of the base certificate.

Special Requirements

Reading Endorsement Portfolio

For the final assessment required for endorsement programs, the reading faculty at GSU has chosen to use a portfolio, which is embedded within each of the courses required in the reading endorsement program. As students complete the required papers and projects within each course, the faculty member will evaluate each student as having met/not met the standards for the course as established by the International Reading Association. In order for the reading endorsement portfolio to be evaluated, students must purchase LiveText.

Students must apply the material in some way to be able to complete course requirements and the requirements for the endorsements; therefore, if a student is not actively teaching, they will need to seek a classroom to volunteer in, volunteer in after school or community settings, work with their own children, or students may tutor children.
