English as a Second Language (ESL) Related Courses

The School of Professional & Continuing Studies offers coursework and professional development to support teachers working with English Learners.

Currently, the Virginia Department of Education has partnered with the University of Richmond’s School of Professional & Continuing Studies to offer a five-week professional development ESL Praxis test Preparation session during the spring, summer, and fall semesters of 2018.

This test preparation session provides support to teachers who hold a valid Virginia teaching license and are interested in receiving the ESL add-on endorsement by successfully completing the ESL Praxis test. The test preparation session covers each of the strands of the test including language acquisition, linguistics, advocacy, law, instruction, and assessment.

Participants receive presentation of material related to each strand, key vocabulary terms, practice test questions, individual and group practice activities, and discussion questions and feedback from the instructor.

Interested participants should contact the ESL Specialist/Title III Coordinator for their school division.  Title III Coordinators receive registration information directly form the VDOE.
