Bilingual Education




Subtests IV and V

Stanley A. Lucero, Master of Arts in Teaching

As you prepare to take the CSET LOTE Spanish Subtests IV and V to qualify for Bilingual Authorization on your California Teaching Credential, study the following information carefully until you clearly understand the importance of the concepts and prepare yourself to be a highly qualified Bilingual Credentialed Teacher.  This information will take several months or years of consistent, intense efforts on your part to master.  I suggest forming a study team.

I organized and gathered this information starting as a team leader to develop tests for the Bilingual Certificate of Competence Exam for the Tulare County Bilingual Bicultural Consortium.  I continued updating the information as I worked with districts near me to develop their Bilingual Master Plans.  After I retired, I taught at California State University, Fresno in the bilingual credentialing program.  I also assisted Tulare County Department of Education with their CSET LOTE Spanish test preparation classes.
