FTCE English 6-12... WAITING

Discussion in 'Single Subject Tests' started by Heather Young-Nguyen, Feb 2, 2018.

    Hi all,
    I am new to the forum but I obsessively read through old threads regarding the FTCE English 6-12 exam for study tips. I took the exam on 1/27 and passed the multiple choice thanks to some info I got here! Now the hard part — waiting for essay results! It’s only been a few days, but was wondering what everyone else’s turnaround time for scores was?

    Also, am I happy to help anyone with questions regarding the test and study tips + tricks!

    Good Luck! I was going to take the FTCE but I heard how terrible it was and decided to take the GACE instead. I live in a bordering georgia city and I am from florida

    I am taking the FTCE essay component in two days. I failed the essay portion three times before and my job is on the line. I would appreciate any and all help. Does anyone have any suggestions, study tips, tricks, etc.

    www.broward.k12.fl.us/talentdevelopment/news/ftce/la6-12/9.doc this helped me with my essay. I chose a literary element and stuck with that.

    Hello everyone,

    I could use help in all areas as I am preparing to take the 6-12 English exam in a few months. I have been reading how many teachers even veterans have been failing this assessment and I am just terrified. What should I be studying, if this question is permitted here? I saw the link above for Broward and have downloaded it. Any help is welcomed and appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    I studied the broward county study sheet link above and would practice a couple essays a week to get the hang of it. That study sheet gives you examples.

    TampaTeacher06, thank you for the response. I have that resource along with NavaEd, thanks again. How long did you study before taking the exam? Did you have two pieces of literature to pick from or 1? Thank you

    I didn't pass the first two times, but I was writing essays in between. So it took me like 6 months to finally get it.

    A friendly reminder: The teacher-test companies can and do monitor forums like this to ensure that details of actual specific test questions aren't being published, and they can and do ferret out offending posters' information and apply punishments up to and including suspension of the test taker's account and revocation of passing scores.

    With that said, nothing stops an A to Z member from posting a random short poem or passage here and inviting discussion of it.

    Can I ask what you used to study for the ESE test? I took mine and failed the first time. I am retaking it in a couple weeks.

    Congratulations!!! I am taking both parts of the English 6-12 for the first time in 2 weeks, and am very nervous!! I've been putting this exam off for over a year! (I get severe test anxiety!!!)
    I've been studying the NavaEd study guide for both sections, but am concerned about the essay portion since it has been SO long since I've written an essay! (even the multiple choice seems like it's going to be very tricky & difficult!!) I also looked at the Broward County link...
    Any and ALL tips would be very helpful and appreciated?! Please?? I am a career changer, and NEED to pass this exam in order to begin my teaching career and do what I truly love!!! (I have been long-term subbing in ELA for middle schools for over 2 years now, and before that in an elementary school, ready to be classroom teacher!!!)
