Three Letters of Recommendation
The Reading program requires three letters of recommendation. At least one letter should be from a past professor (or someone who has worked with you in an academic setting and can evaluate your academic capability). The other two can come from individuals who have observed you in a professional context. All the recommendations should come from people who would be able to evaluate your capability for academic success; who can evaluate your substantial work (paid or unpaid) in education or your current field; who supervise your work in current employment and can speak to your capacity for collaborating, managing multiple projects simultaneously, as well as working independently; or who have observed your effectiveness in a professional or human-service context. At least two letters of recommendation should provide evidence that you can succeed in graduate education.
