Teacher Licensure Examination Structure and Content Areas


Per the new structure, all candidates will write papers on General Professional Knowledge as well as Pedagogy.

The Pedagogy is the combination of teaching methods (what teachers do), learning activities (what teachers guide their learners to do), and learning assessments (the assignments, projects, or tasks that measure student learning).

The pedagogies are differentiated by levels of specialisation.
