Endorsement Program Offerings
English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Endorsement
Designed for educators holding an Oregon teaching license, this program explores the principles, theories, research, and practices relevant to the needs of students acquiring English as a second or additional language.
Program components are tailored to give participants the opportunity to grapple with issues involving diversity, educational equity, and English-language learning. We also offer an online cohort for our ESOL Endorsement during the school year. Click here to learn more
Reading Intervention Endorsement
Built on the belief that language, in all its richness of form and function, is the foundation from which effective literacy evolves, our Reading Endorsement program applies a dynamic view to reading and writing instruction. The program is rooted in the theoretical belief that reading, writing, listening, and speaking are all language processes. We take an integrated and holistic approach to the teaching of these skills.
