This draft handbook provides descriptions and summaries of the six tests that California elementary and secondary teachers must pass to earn the Crosscultural, Language, and Academic Development (CLAD) or Bilingual, Crosscultural, Language, and Academic Development (BCLAD) certificates. The six tests include: (1) "Language Structure and First- and Second-Language Development"; (2) "Methodology of Bilingual, English Language Development, and Content Instruction"; (3) "Culture and Culture Diversity"; (4) "Methodology for Primary Language Instruction"; (5) "The Culture of Emphasis"; and (6) "The Language of Emphasis." Each description and summary outlines the skills covered by the test and the weights given to specific categories of skills in the grading of the test. Tests one through four are in English and are the same for each language certification. Test five is in English but focuses on a specific target culture. Test six is the target language. (MDM)
