Overview

By demystifying the enormity of the CalTPA assessment and the demands candidates face in preparing for these required tests, Williams, Guillaume and Ponder, all trained CalTPA assessors and instructors, have written the CalTPA Prep Guide using only the clearest, most accessible language, in a voice that speaks directly to reader. This first edition guide will successfully prepare candidates for a multiple-subject and single-subject credential in California to organize, articulate and demonstrate their knowledge on all four of the CalTPA tasks in a clear and concise manner. Filled with activities and engaging exercises to help, the guide also provides practical writing strategies and tips for organization to enhance the credential candidate's performance on the CalTPA. Flexible and precise, this guide can be used by candidates in any credential program, whether candidates pursue the CalTPA through a series of courses at their program, or are expected to complete it independently.  Once the access code is activated, the subscription is valid for six months.
