Literacy Lab students

The Literacy Lab provides ULM education candidates with a professional media lab/curriculum library where candidates can extend their learning, plan their lessons, and have access to materials needed to fulfill course requirements.  


The Literacy Lab houses lab/library materials such as children's literature, Louisiana Guidebooks and supplemental material, literacy, math, and resource materials for lesson planning. Elementary and secondary teacher candidates use the lab for peer teaching experiences in literacy courses.  

In addition, the Literacy Lab is open to the public, especially for local school teachers and educators who need access to these types of materials. Teachers can also schedule field trips to the Literacy Lab for interactive literacy lessons with ULM teacher candidates.

About the CAES Literacy Lab:

Strong literacy skills impact an individual's ability to fully participate in society, understand public issues, and lay the foundation upon which labor market skills are built.

The complexity of today's world means that individuals need to have some level of proficiency in reading, mathematics, and science in order to understand and participate fully in economic and social life – and the ability to raise proficiency levels in this area is directly related to our ability to produce outstanding educators.
