BA Elementary Education Endorsement Option: English to Speakers of Other Languages Endorsement (ESOL)

An ESOL endorsement provides you with an opportunity to understand the students in your classroom and the other people around you who come from homes where English is not the primary language.

The program began with the creation of guiding principles for working with ESOL students developed by a team of faculty and staff at UW Bothell.
