19,670 recent views
This specialization is the second of two specializations that make up the TESOL Certificate from Arizona State University. This Specialization builds on the theories learned in TESOL Certificate, Part 1: Teach English Now! Foundational Principles. It covers the design and implementation of reading and writing, listening and speaking, and technology enriched activities, as well as a teaching practicum. In the final Capstone Project, developed by international educators and TESOL specialists at ASU’s Global Launch, you’ll apply the skills you learned by demonstrating your ability to teach through video recordings and by reflecting on your own and others’ teaching. When you complete both Specializations, you will submit your work for expert review to receive your ASU 150-hour TESOL Certificate, in addition to your Coursera certificates.
