The California Teacher Review for the CTEL* Exam was developed with the specific goal of helping teachers prepare for the CTEL Exam and qualify for the English Learners and Bilingual Authorizations (formerly CLAD and BCLAD). With this review guide, we have made passing all three CTEL subtests possible without having to spend considerable amounts of money and time on preparatory courses. It follows the CTEL standards and thoroughly addresses those concepts that the CTEL exam evaluates. The extended edition is a new revised edition that also includes over 50 pages of practice questions and answers. Through the use of California Teacher Review(tm) for the CTEL Exam, you will be able to prepare for the CTEL 1, 2, and 3 tests in roughly four weeks. It covers the following major topics: 1) phology and morphology, 2) syntax and semantics, 3) the evolution of languages, 4) language discourse, 5) language pragmatics, 6) language development, 7) assessment and instruction, and 8) culture and academics. All information has been thoroughly researched and organized in an easy to follow format. The guide also provides excellent examples linked to key instructional strategies that will prove useful in tackling the CTEL constructed response questions. Each section also includes a glossary of CTEL specific termilogy and there is an end of guide index that allows for easy browsing.
