  • TELL: Teaching English Language Learners

    This 16-credit endorsement provided at Brigham Young University is a series of six video-anchored courses. The program’s overarching purpose is to advance the education of language minority students through teacher development. The program meets this purpose by developing teachers who know how to learn and grow as educators.

    As a result of this program, participants, particularly content-area teachers, will be able to work with linguistically and culturally diverse learners in the regular classroom in ways that reflect pedagogic practices that are inclusive of all learners. Completion of the entire TELL Program results in an ESL teaching endorsement.
