Language Literacy and Special Education

Bilingual Education / Teaching English as a Second Language Minor

 
This minor satisfies the endorsements for bilingual education and English as a second language. This minor serves the goals and requirements of students wishing to teach in classrooms characterized by cultural and linguistic diversity. The Bilingual Education/TESL minor leads to K-12 endorsements in bilingual education and English Language Learners. Students must demonstrate proficiency in a non-English language in order to meet the bilingual education minor requirements. This is to be demonstrated by passing the foreign language examination assessment required by the State of Washington.

Full admission into the Professional Education Program is required before enrollment in any of the EDBL courses.

EDBL 492 requires that four (4) required program courses be completed before enrollment.
