Teaching English Language Learners (ELL) Endorsement

All coursework leading to the Endorsement in ELL is offered online.

The coursework requires a 60-hour ELL practicum where the student will observe, teach, and assess ELL students under the supervision of an endorsed ELL teacher. This allows pre-service teachers the opportunity to activity work with the populations that they will teach, and often the pre-service teachers are hired by the same school systems in which they perform their ELL.
