I was wondering if someone could give me break down of the BTSA. I have will be receiving my preliminary credential in April '09 and I wanted to find out what I will need to do for the BTSA. Are there actual assignments that we have to do? Why can't they incorporate these assignments into our crendtial programs? I do the Cal State TEach program and I will have "student taught" in the classroom for 16 months by the time I graduate.
