Literacy CEU Modules

The Literacy ceu modules

Introduction: The North Carolina Association for Middle Level Education has created a series of modules for literacy continuing education credits. Each module should take about 10 hours to complete and is valued as one continuing education credit. Each individual will need to begin with Module One and then can choose after that from the different modules. These CEU modules can be used as literacy credits toward licensure renewal.
