Godsman Language and Biliteracy Project
Not Currently Accepting Applications
The Godsman/Literacy Squared®: Language and Biliteracy program is a language and biliteracy-based School of Education program to earn an endorsement to teach culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) students. Teachers graduating from this program will earn the credits necessary for a CLD endorsement. Successful completion of these credits will also put teachers well along the path to earning a Master’s degree. In fact, there are only two additional courses required for the Master’s degree. Funding from the grant will pay for the first four endorsement classes, but tuition for the remaining four classes will be the responsibility of the student. The tuition for each 3-credit course is $900, which will be paid for by the student. Should additional funding become available, we will make every effort to assist you with this additional tuition.
Teachers selected to participate in this program will form a cohort that will begin taking classes Summer 2016 (and will finish taking classes for the CLD Endorsement in Spring 2018). Teachers are expected to take one class each fall, spring, and two summer courses until all required CLD Endorsement credits have been earned (24 credits total). Fall and spring courses generally meet once per week from approximately 4:30-7:30 p.m. Each summer class meets for 3-4 weeks every weekday for 3 hours (e.g. M-F, 9:00-12:00 a.m.).
Classes are coordinated by the staff of The BUENO Center for Multicultural Education and CU Boulder School of Education. Courses will likely be located at Godsman Elementary. If selected to participate, you will commit to commute to the course location, pay for all books and materials, attend class, complete all assignments, and complete the endorsement. We will pay the tuition costs for the first four courses.
