(CONTRA COSTA COUNTY, Calif.) The Contra Costa County Office of Education is offering all residents and teachers the opportunity to prepare for the submission of the EdTPA Test.
Are you looking to hone your skills as an educator? Maybe you just want to further understand your students and their learning habits, or possibly you want to help your students become more well-rounded. The Contra Costa County Office of Education can help with that.
The four-part test prep is broken down into sections. The first, Academic Language and Meaningful Context focuses on Elementary School literacy and Math, is on Jan. 22 from 10 a.m. to noon and then focuses on a single subject from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m.
