Graduate Certificate in Teaching Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students (TCLD)

Program Links

This fully online graduate certificate program is for teachers and administrators that hope to improve K-12 education for their culturally and linguistically diverse students. The certificate, is designed to develop the capacity of teachers and administrators to provide high quality instructional experiences for diverse learners. The majority of course content will be centered around a menu of readings and assignments that allow teachers and administrators to select those that are most germane to their local and personal teaching context.

About the Program

The program of study includes the three course sequence needed to earn an ESOL endorsement and three additional courses that emphasize the social, cultural and academic contexts inherent to teaching diverse students in the classroom.

The unique aspect is the potential for several teachers from a site or district to engage in the coursework simultaneously and collaborate on capstone experiences. This coursework aligns with TAPS standards that comprise the TKES assessment system for teachers in Georgia
