CEU Literacy Component

Literacy applies to all educators including Student Service Personnel and is not meant to limit or restrict the renewal credit process. Students who are College and Career Ready in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language (located in the ELA Common Core State Standards (CCSS), page 7) defines and offers a portrait of a literate graduate. It is critical to note that although the description is taken from the English Language Arts Common Core Standards, they are applicable and taught to every student at every grade level, and all teachers share in the development of literate graduates. Skills in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and language undergird and are prerequisites for all forms of 21st century literacy, including:
  • Informational Literacy
  • Media Literacy
  • Information, Media, and Technology Literacy
  • Visual Literacy
  • Civic Literacy
  • Financial, Economic, and Entrepreneurial Literacy
  • Health Literacy, and
  • Environmental Literacy
