How have you been studying? What materials are you using, and what are you doing with them?

I'll guess that you're coming up short on the technical terminology of language teaching. Go to this page (http://www.stanford.edu/~hakuta/www/.../calvstex4.htm) for links on English language development standards and related materials in California and in Texas. Each of these documents contains terminology that you need to know and be able to use.

Um. I found that page while researching stuff for you: try it again.

The point is that teacher materials for these tests tend to use terminology for which you're responsible - and, aside from state-specific programs, the terminology should show broad commonalities from state to state.

Felocity5, Congrats! What did you study? Was there a particular book or online source for Pedagogy that was helpful?

I've taken it 4 times now and am very frustrated.

thanks,
margarita

See if you can find a recent edition - 3d ed or later - of Diaz-Rico & Weed's Cultural, Language, and Academic Diversity Handbook. It's pretty thorough, especially if you use the Internet to look up more examples/explanations of specific terms.

I have also failed the test several times and equally frustrated. I also bought the book recommended and studied. The most frustrating part of taking the test and failing is the feedback is poor on what one is not passing. So this, in turn, makes it very difficult to study for. My college degree is in Spanish, but I cannot seem to pass this test!
Sincerely,
Frustrated Teacher
who will soon become unemployed if unable to pass LOTE
