Standards for Doctoral Students in Language & Literacy Education Nell K. Duke Cheryl Rosaen Douglas K. Hartman Lit Coll Sept 28, 2010
To lead a discussion on what doctoral students specializing in language and literacy education should know and be able to do before leaving their doctoral program.
To share draft standards for doctoral students in the Graduate Specialization in Language and Literacy Education.
Revised the Graduate (Doctoral) Specialization in Language & Literacy Education
Revised requirements available at: http://www.reg.msu.edu/academicprograms/ProgramDetail.asp?Program=6740 (see also next slide/slide 4)

You apply for the doctoral specialization after you have completed all of the requirements, but if you are pursuing the doctoral specialization, please make sure you are on the list of students with a primary interest in language and literacy (see Nell or Cheryl) and are on the LitColl list (see Troy Mariage)

What revisions or additions to the standards would you suggest?
What kinds of experiences would allow students to meet each of these standards?
How can our specialization help to provide those experiences?
What type(s) of support do students need/want from their advisor or other faculty to have a learning opportunities?
How can we help students monitor, record, and be mindful about their progress in meeting these standards?
