CI 472 is part of the 5 course sequence leading to the Bilingual/ESL Endorsement. CI 481 - Foundations and Current Issues in Educating English Language Learners, ED 258 - Bilingualism and Cross-Cultural Issues in a Diverse Society, or ED 346 - Sociocritical Foundations of English Learning in Urban Elementary Schools is a prerequisite for registration in this class.
However, we recognize that enrollment in these courses fills up quickly and it is not possible to always begin the course sequence with CI 481, ED 258 or ED 346. Therefore, if you are a certified teacher and have a year or more experience in the classroom, please e-mail the Bilingual/ESL Coordinator, Aria Razfar at firstname.lastname@example.org to see if you are eligible to waive this requirement. In the email, please state how long you have been teaching in the classroom.
