PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Teachers help teachers study for the ESOL test! These are the compiled and typed study notes a group at my school used to prepare for the SAE for ESOL certification in Florida. We ALL passed! We did not put them in any special order; they were meant to be used as a tool for review.
As the one who had written them out on file cards to be used as flash cards said, "They are GOLDEN."

I purchased a while ago but didn't start studying until 2 weeks before the test. This is exactly what it states- a compilation of notes. I did find it useful to frame my studying. I also purchased another study guide and did lots of online practice tests. I took the test today and I am relieved to say I passed. It was an extremely hard test with most of the emphasis on application in a school/classroom setting.

This was an unacceptable product. It is a packet of notes someone used to study for their exam. This would have been fine if a friend lent it to you for a quick glance over but for this to be a $4.50 product is not right. If the seller wants to provide a product (especially for this price) then it should be of acceptable quality. It is not organized and there are many errors. I think the seller should remove this product and revise it until it is edited and organized. I was not expecting a book or a complete guide to all things ESOL but I expected for 5 dollars to received something better.

I WAS only expecting a packet of study notes since I did take coursework for ESOL as well as read books in the subject matter. However, I was expecting nicely organized and easy-to-read and follow study notes. This product was absolutely none of those things. The price is not justified!
On  July 6, 2013Susan Johansen answered:
I am so sorry that you had such an unhappy experience with the study notes. As stated in the product overview,
"... These are the compiled and typed study notes a group at my school used to prepare for the SAE for ESOL certification in Florida. We ALL passed! We did not put them in any special order; they were meant to be used as a tool for review. "
They are not meant to be used in place of coursework through University Credit or District Staff Development venues. I am sorry if you were expecting more than study notes in no particular order. That's what we used for review.

I just read and had to review the FL Subject Area Exam Study Notes for ESOL that I just purchased for $4.50. I am taking the ESOL test later this week and was writing my own study guide (shortening the one from the FLDOE) so I was excited to find this on TpT.

First off, if I had not already studied for this test using another resource (FLDoE FTCE test info guide) this packet would have made NO sense to me whatsoever. It was very poorly put together and had a significant number of misspellings / typos throughout. It really needs to be proofread and corrected. It seems to have been cut and pasted from several pieces of work. The fonts are different throughout, and the pages do not flow well at all...it seems to have been a compilation from several peoples' notes.

I found the FREE resource titled FLDoE Test Information Guide for ESOL K-12 to be much better organized. It has full explanations of each of the theories, Theorists, acronyms and lawsuits. Of course it is much longer.

This study guide would have been unintelligible and useless had I not first completed XMANonline Study Guide and then the free FLDOE-furnished study guide. Though I picked up a few new facts from it, the TeachersPayTeachers product copied some of the same errors included in the XMANonline Study Guide and in the FLDOE Study Guide. XMANonline had several errors, but at least the format was more organized and clearer.
I passed the test--using only these sources--but the test is NOT easy!

A helpful start. Some of the guide is just from someone looking up the answers to the study guide questions- something you could do yourself if you take the time.
There was an error- it said that liquid is 2 phonemes..which is incorrect, it is 2 syllables. Phonemes are the smallest units of sound- and liquid has 4. It wasn't on the version of the test I took- but I can't give perfect marks to a guide with that mistake and others. I'd pay the money for this guide again though- its a nice overview and I passed :O) It wasn't all I used, though!

Although there was some great information in here, it was not very easy to follow and could have been much more organized. I only used it to read over, but I could not use it to actually study for the exam. If it was in a more organized format, it would be a much better document to have for preparation. But, since it was only $3.25, I don't regret purchasing it!

Product Questions & Answers

On  March 8, 2011,  Buyer asked:
I noticed that you mention this is for SAE ESOL certification but the SAE is a seperate exam from the ESOL certification. I have already taken the SAE and would like ESOL certification rather than ESOL endorsement which is what my degree offers. Is this the correct study guide for ESOL certification K-12?

Hello Susan,

I would like to be certified to teach ESOL, I have a bachelor's in Spanish, a minor in Education and I am certified to teach Spanish. Yesterday, I called the Florida Department of Education and they told me that passing the ESOL subject area exam will allow me to teach ESOL. I think I will give this test a try, how long is the exam? I am interested in purchasing your study notes to get prepared. In advance, thanks for your help.

Angie (South Florida)
P.S. I send you this question twice because I was not sure if you received it, the page didn't give me a sent confirmation.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  December 11, 2009Susan Johansen answered:
Hi Angie, I believe you can pass the test and add ESOL to your certificate, but then you have to have 120 staff development courses by the time your certification expires. I have not ever taken the test because I have a master's in ESOL. The teachers in my staff development classes usually say the test is long and they think they fail, but they usually pass if they study. I took the competencies that the state tests to make the study notes. If you know the laws, methods, theorists, and how to apply appropriate strategies to different levels of language acquisition, you should be well on your way. GOOD LUCK!! Susan

Teachers Pay Teachers
On  May 7, 2009Susan Johansen answered:
I looked at the competencies being tested in the DOE/FETC study booklet. I teach ESOL staff development for my district and found we needed more than the sample questions in the %5.00 book you can purchase online. It is about 18-20 pages. I don't remember exactly.
