Liberal Studies Workshops

The BA in Liberal Studies is the undergraduate degree program for students who wish to go on to a credential program to become multiple-subject, K-12 teachers. The Liberal Studies department views learning as a transformative, socially interactive process. Engagement in this process requires critical intellectual inquiry, reflection, collaboration, and the exploration of the interconnectedness and relationships among the disciplines, society, and our own humanity. Learning is also enhanced by the use of varying technologies to facilitate research, increase understanding, and promote communication with a variety of audiences in an increasingly diverse world. Furthermore, the connection between theory and practice is valued as essential for students to become informed and inquiring members of society and to serve their community.

CSET Test-Taking Strategies
Prep Courses for CSET & CBEST

Education Professor Maria Sudduth presents strategies for doing well on the CSET exam (California Subject Examinations for Teachers), which prospective teachers must pass in order to earn a teaching credential in California. She goes over the multiple subjects practice tests for both the Reading, Language, and Literature section of the CSET, and the History and Social Science section.  She also touches on the sub-tests. Professor Sudduth puts the questions in context by going through the “Standards and Frameworks” page on the California State Department of Education web site.

Many of the strategies Professor Sudduth outlines are applicable to any kind of exam.
