There's hope!

I took the LOTE this past March for the first time and passed with flying colors. The A/C was broken when I took it so it was so hot in there. I talked to their administration and they apologized and offered to refund my money but score report would have been voided. Since I had a couple of offers with different school districts I proceeded to have my score reported instead. I will have to say that I thought I was going to fail miserably but I didn't. I did not study for the test and the flashcards I looked over before going in had nothing to do with what was on the actual test.

My best advice for those struggling or taking the the test soon is to be familiar with all the instructions. They can be very confusing. The cultural section is common knowledge if you have taken any Spanish culture/art/latinamerican studies classes. On the lesson plan I made a 5 out of 6. I was very brief but focused on the main themes of review/content/assessment. Don't waste time overthinking. They need to make sure you will be a good teacher not a perfect one.

Prepare for the pedagogy section. Make sure you go over the ACTFUL guidelines thoroughly and are ready to teach at various grade levels. They are very specific when it comes to this so please go over it. If you are a native speaker like me, you'll find the listening part to be a breeze as the recordings are very clear. The writing section is not bad at all. Make sure you support your opinions just like in English class. Oh, don't forget your accents. I thought I did horribly on the speaking section since I was so nervous but I ended up doing great. I think that more than the subject, they are looking to see if you can communicate clearly.

I took the TOPT a few years ago and I have to say that the LOTE is nothing like it. Be ready and stay calm and you will be just fine. I hate the wait time though. Let me know if you have any other questions.
