Strategic literacy instruction should accompany attention to individual needs in order to make the greatest impact. This care for the whole person or cura personalis, as it is known in Ignatian education, helps literacy educators to more effectively address variances in student learning. To encourage cura personalis, Master of Education in Reading students at Regis University are encouraged to apply evidence-based literacy strategies while caring for individual socio-emotional needs in order to make a more lasting, positive impact. This is primarily achieved through three important and somewhat unique aspects of the program: clinical reports, service learning projects, and teacher mentorship. In this manuscript, the author describes how these reflective and service-based program requirements help literacy educators to view instruction through the lens of the whole person.
