Beacon Educator provides five 60-hour courses aligned to the Florida ESOL Endorsement for Language Arts teachers. The courses provide current research and interactive features. Participants investigate the areas of methods, curriculum and materials, testing and evaluation, cross-cultural understanding, and applied linguistics.
Other teachers can select one of the 60-hour endorsement courses, a 60-hour survey course (ESOL: Issues & Strategies), or the 18-hour ESOL: An Overview course. Programs for administrators and for guidance counselors are also available.
