English to Speakers of Other Languages Endorsement
The English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Endorsement Program at Kennesaw State University is a three-course sequence (9 semester hours) with embedded field experiences. The program has been housed in the Inclusive Education Department in the Bagwell College of Education within the Kennesaw State University Professional Teacher Education Unit (KSU-PTEU).
The ESOL Endorsement program requires at least a two-semester commitment. Candidates may enroll in one or two courses during a semester, but must be prepared to devote time to teaching in an approved ESOL classroom.
English to Speakers of Other Languages candidates will learn to demonstrate the skills and knowledge to create environments and learning experiences that engage students in active learning and authentic achievement. They must constantly assess and use results for improvement of their K-12 student learning. English to Speakers of Other Languages candidates are expected to demonstrate knowledge and mastery of research-based practices.
