Toma, Yumi
The Breeze, n6 p1-3 Apr 1994
This article from a quarterly newsletter discusses the requirements necessary to obtain an endorsement on a Washington Teaching Certificate (WTC) to teach Japanese as a Second Language in K-12 public schools in the state. Candidates are required to have 24 quarter hours (16 semester hours) in Japanese writing/composition, conversation, reading, or history and culture. To obtain an initial WTC itself, candidates must: (1) be 18 years of age; (2) present evidence of good moral character; (3) possess an earned bachelor's degree; (4) have completed an approved teacher education program or have 3 years full-time teaching experience and a teaching certificate from another state; and (5) have completed a major (45 quarter or 30 semester hours) in one endorsement area. To obtain a continuing certificate, candidates need to have completed all the requirements for the initial WTC, plus have a master's degree or 45 quarter hours (30 semester hours) of upper-division or graduate credit, 2 teaching endorsements, 180 days full-time teaching experience, and a course in issues of child abuse. Of the 19 colleges and universities in Washington that offer teacher preparation courses, 12 have Japanese language programs. (MDM)
