TESOL Praxis II Prep

Overview

The TESOL Praxis II Prep Sequence is a five-course series designed to prepare certified teachers to take the Praxis II (test 0361) in ESOL. The five courses have been strategically selected from our M.S. in TESOL program to target key areas of Praxis II. Should you complete the series and choose to move into the M.S. in TESOL program, your 15 credits transfer in. This means that you only need seven more courses (21 credits) to complete the M.S. program.

Key Features of the TESOL Praxis II Prep Series include:

• Preparation for the Praxis II (test 0361) in ESOL

• Updated knowledge working with English Language Learners (ELLs)

• Courses focus on key areas such as: Foundations in English Learner Education, Assessment of English Learners, Teaching Reading to ELLs in Content Areas, Principals of Language Acquisition and Linguistics for ESOL Teachers.
