ESOL Endorsement

Designed for educators holding an Oregon teaching license, Lewis & Clark's ESOL Endorsement Program explores the principles, theories, research, and practices relevant to the needs of PK-12 students acquiring English as a second or additional language. To meet the needs of professionals, we offer program courses in the evenings, on weekends, during the summer, on-line and, in some cases, at school sites. Candidates join colleagues and Lewis & Clark faculty to engage in classes for dialogue, study, and field experiences that address the full complexity of cultural and linguistic diversity and of academic and social inclusion of immigrant students.
