Teaching English As a Second Language (ESL)

Teaching ESL is an endorsement granted by the State of Idaho. Twenty credits are required, with work in each of the following three areas: foreign language, English as a second language methods or bilingual methods, and cultural diversity or multicultural topics. This endorsement does not require institutional recommendation; the Idaho Teacher Certification office will evaluate each case. Students must pass the Praxis II exam #0360 “English to Speakers of Other Languages.” Note: ED 434, 436, 437, and 439 are currently not available.
