English Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Endorsement
What is the focus of the degree?
This degree will provide you with the highly marketable, state-approved ESOL Endorsement to add to your Oregon license. You will learn to meet the challenges of teaching English language learners in the classroom. The theoretical background and practical strategies you learn will help you reach this growing group of students. After completing this program you will be able to understand, relate to and teach students from a wide-variety of cultures, socio-economic statuses and language groups.
Why choose to get your ESOL endorsement?
Due to the number of students in the Oregon school system who speak English as their second language, many school districts are specifically targeting teachers who have their ESOL endorsement.
