This online program authorizes you to provide specialized instruction to English learners in a California classroom. You'll learn to design curriculum to assist students with developing their listening, speaking, reading and writing skills in English.
Courses address the belief that teaching English learners requires an understanding of first and second language acquisition theories; how culture impacts learning; appropriate bilingual methodology; and the need to use appropriate content area instruction through Specially-Designed Academic Instruction in English (SDAIE).
Extended Education offers two CTEL courses every academic session, according to the schedule at the right. Students must begin the CTEL program with either EDUU 526 or EDUU 570, depending on the schedule of offerings. Once either EDUU 526 or EDUU 570 have been passed, students may proceed freely within the program.
Students may begin these courses prior to being admitted to Brandman University. However, students must be admitted to Brandman before submitting their culminating portfolio and being recommended to the CTC.
