Endorsement | ESOL/Reading Dual
The Reading Specialist & ESOL or ESOL/Bilingual endorsement program is available to candidates who hold a current Initial or Continuing Teaching License endorsed for the regular classroom or special education, or who are enrolled in a pre-service program leading to an Initial Teaching License endorsed for the regular or special education classroom.
These endorsements may be obtained simultaneously through 26 semester credits of courses, including 22 semester credits of core courses and four semester practicum credits for each endorsement area. Candidates must pass the state-approved Reading Specialist and ESOL tests, as well as submit portfolios or case studies. Those seeking the ESOL/Bilingual endorsement will need to achieve a level of High/Intermediate on the ACTFL oral language exam.
Candidates who earn the endorsements will be qualified to teach reading to students pre-kindergarten through grade 12 and English-language learners within the authorization level.
