Excelsior Literacy Instruction in the Elementary School
#1
Has anyone taken the Excelsior Literacy exam to meet the NYS teacher certification requirements? I need 3 credits in Literacy Instruction and 3 in Literacy Instruction Methods. This 6 credits cover both, right?

Seems like InstantCert hasn't got prep materials for the exam yet. Any ideas or tips for passing?

Has anyone ever taken this exam? I'm wondering if all 4 "recomended" textbooks are really needed. They seem to cover the same material..

Hi, for those of you out there who don't know what to study from- I was advised to use the book "Teaching Children to Read the teacher makes the difference" 5th Edition written by D.Ray Reutzel and Robert B.Cooler. if you go through the entire book really well you should do well. Good Luck!!!!!
