RDG: Harry Hahn Reading Endowment Award

Description
Dr. Harry T. Hahn came to Oakland University, where he founded the Department of Reading and Language Arts, the Oakland University’s Reading Clinic, and the reading education specialization. During the 1960s, Dr. Hahn conducted studies to determine the effectiveness of using a language experience approach with beginning readers. As a result of his work, Language Encounters was development, a strategy for teaching language arts by integrating thinking, speaking, reading, writing, and listening. This developed strategy was used by 45 off-campus sites, and one outcome of Language Encounters was the Young Authors Conference, which is a celebration of the publication achievements of elementary students.
 
Due to Dr. Hahn’s ground-breaking working, Oakland University’s Department of Reading and Language Arts is recognized around the world by educators and scholars. More than 10,000 children have benefited from the reading clinic, where a plaque of Dr. Hahn hangs as a permanent reminder of all his hard work and dedication. Dr. Hahn’s legacy of commitment to the development of many students’ literacy skills is perpetuated by a generous gift from the Hahn family to establish this endowment.
