    I am in the process of working towards getting an additional endorsement in ESL (I am an experienced secondary English/Social Studies teacher) - I plan on taking the Praxis 5362 as required by my state, and have some materials to help study for that. I am looking for any books/textbooks that you used in your training that you could recommend as being helpful - I am trying to learn as much as I can on my own without taking extra classes.

    Thanks so much for any help!

    As a teacher who works with a large ELL population, I received a crash course training in SIOP (Sheltered Instruction Observation Protocol) and recommend the book Making Content Comprehensible for English Learners as a guide. Not cheap, but what textbook is?

    Hello! I know this is an old thread but the book that you recommended does it prepare you very well for the 5362 praxis?
    Thanks!

    Why do you need to pass this Praxis exam? For what state?
