Description

Florida teachers now have the option to take the FTCE Reading K-12 test in place of the 300 hours or professional learning courses for the required reading endorsement. Master the FTCE Reading K-12 test prep course has instruction and practice questions on all 9 competencies and 44 skills needed to pass this test. As a hard working teacher who has been through the certification process, I was tired of seeing test prep companies charge high prices for online courses with limited access, so I created this course with unlimited, forever access at a reasonable price. This course is aligned with our popular companion book, Master the FTCE Reading K-12, which includes the same instruction with a bonus of a full practice test and flash cards for the same price. Find the Master the FTCE Reading K-12 companion book on Amazon and on my website, elainechandler(dot)com. I wish you the very best in passing this test!

Who this course is for:
  • All Florida Teachers
  • Teachers who need the Reading Endorsement add-on to their professional teaching certificate
  • Teachers who want Reading Certification as a separate professional certification
  • Teachers in grades K-12
