University Credit for Scholastic RED Professional Development Courses
Effective professional development requires that teachers reflect on their learning and refine their teaching based on that reflection. Teachers enrolled in Scholastic RED courses study and apply the research-based components of effective reading instruction and reading strategies. Over a period of several weeks, teachers implement and refine these strategies as they work towards transforming their online coursework into classroom practice.
Participants applying for credit for RED courses must adhere to the following requirements:
- Scholastic RED participants will be allowed to enroll in and earn credit for only two Scholastic RED courses per semester/quarter (corresponding to university Fall (September-December), Winter/Spring (January-May), and Summer (June-August) semesters/quarters).
- Each RED course must be completed in no fewer than five weeks and no more than one calendar year.
- Participants must register for credit within 10 days of logging in to their Scholastic RED course.
Credit requirements and policies may vary by university. Check with the university where you are applying to ensure that you meet its requirements.
