Small-Group Reading MTI Graduate Credit

Small-Group Reading MTI Graduate Credit

Earn 3 Graduate Credits for Only $375
for Attending BOTH Days of This Workshop!

For an additional fee, attendees may apply the 10.5 hours of training earned during the Small-Group Guided Reading workshop toward graduate-level credit from Midwest Teachers Institute (MTI). Graduate credit hours are for non-degree credits which are designed for professional certification renewals and salary step increases. (Check with your district for approval prior to making a commitment.)

Attendance at both days of the workshop, plus additional coursework related to the workshop, is required for credit. 

Where are my credits coming from?

MTI has an exclusive agreement with Calumet College of St. Joseph, Whiting, Indiana to provide each teacher with an official accredited transcript for completing MTI courses. Calumet College is NCA, NCATE and CAEP accredited making them accepted in all 50 states.

The official course name from Calumet College of St. Joseph will be determined at a later date.
