The 2042 Single Subject Credential with English Learner Authorization program prepares individuals to teach a specific subject, such as math or English, in a departmentalized (K-12) classroom. This credential allows the holder to teach English language learners and is typically required of those who teach at the middle school or high school level. Credential courses and fieldwork experiences are aligned with the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) Teaching Performance Expectations and reflect current research in education and best practices. Candidates utilize Common Core Standards and other state content standards to design engaging lessons and develop skills in planning and differentiating instruction, classroom management, and assessment. In addition, the program focuses on the use of technology in the classroom and the development of 21st Century Skills.
