    Hugs, tica2014.

    If I recall correctly, Texas has a separate professional-practices test, or to be precise two or three of them that cover different age ranges. Have you passed the appropriate one of those?

    Thank you for your response! Although what I meant was is that I only received 29 of 40 points in the instructional practices/pedagogy portion of the LOTE test. I am not taking the PPR test until after I've passed this LOTE. I am taking my LOTE in 3 weeks. I think if I had gotten closer to the full 40 points, I would have passed the first time. I only missed it by 6 points overall the first time (score of 234, passing is 240) So I am really trying to pass it this time.

    29/40 is almost 3/4 of available points: not shabby, but you're right that there's room for improvement. You might find, however, that getting a bit of a start on your PPR prep might help you here.

    Professional-practice and pedagogy questions are similar in that they tend to turn on differences in needs and/or differences in age groups.

    Unless the question stem says otherwise, assume a perfect classroom, no shortage of resources, and a reasonably homogeneous group of students. Any answer that disparages students is wrong.

    Welcome to A to Z, Doña Samantha. Have you taken any coursework in the pedagogy of Spanish?

    Hey I know this is old but I sure hope that you respond. I failed my lote exam by 4 points the first time, now I am taking it again march 9th and would like some advice on what you did for the pedagogy portion?
    I don't nee tips on the Spanish language part either, just the pedagogy. I have to pass if I want a job next school year. Thank you so much!

    I have not taken any coursework in Spanish pedagogy. I have not idea where to find this. I have been searching online trying to find what I can to help pass this test. I have one chance to pass this test. I am going to buy the Barron's AP Spanish book and flash cards. Not sure what to do about the instruction and assessment part of this test. It is the only part I am really struggling with. (Domain I)

    Hugs, Doña Samantha. Let me recommend that you look up the Texas content standards for LOTE. This page might have some helpful links: http://tea.texas.gov/Curriculum_and...er_Than_English/Languages_Other_Than_English/. In addition, rummage around the Internet to find the state and local organizations for teachers of Spanish - if you don't find any, look for the state and local organizations for teachers of LOTE - because the Web sites will probably have further useful resources.

    I just took my Spanish Texes Lote 613 yesterday. I'm nervous... The pedagogy part was really hard. I've already passed the PPR exam and I jut need the LOTE to be certified.

    How long does it take to get the score back? Anyone else here also take it yesterday may 5?

    Hi jazzpianist18, I also took the Spanish Lote 613 yesterday. I was told that it would take 10 days before the scores would be up. I just don't know how I did. I thought that the test was hard. I didn't manage my time well on one of the responses and ran out of time on it. I think that I answered about three fourths of the question. I wonder how much they will take off for that. Reading this thread has made me even more nervous about passing.

    I'm not sure if you still need this info, but for pedagogy I would study Cummins Theory and Stages of Second language acquisition! these were big topics in my Spanish pedagogy classes.

    Hello,

    I did not take the LOTE in spanish but the LOTE in french. I am French native and I first failed and got 237 out of 240. I passed it yesterday finally with a 244.
    Reason why I failed the first time was the pedagogy, I got 18/40 the fIrst tine. So what really helped me out is the PRAXIS free online taining PDF . Why ? They have the correction for instructional practice. I combined that with the LOTE in french test PDF training from ects and I finally got a 25/40. It is not brilliant but it helped me passed regarding that my speaking, writing and listening were almost perfect due to the fact that I'm French.
    My major is not French but Business.

    Hope this helps,
    Oumy

    Thanks for that! I am currently looking at how to best prepare for the pedagogy part of the Spanish LOTE. Hopefully that will help me!

    Would you still recommend this book? I realize you originally posted this 4 years ago... If there is another book that is more relevant now, can you suggest it?

    Will they have a special keyboard for inputting the accents? Or should I be prepared with the appropriate alt codes memorized to be able to put them in?

    I would expect it still to be helpful.

    If you're within striking distance of a university that teaches the relevant courses, you could also visit the university bookstore to examine books required for that course and see if they'll meet your needs.

    Hey Holly Guerrero,
    I will be taking the Spanish Lote this week, just wanted to know if you already take it? How did it go?
    I took it already and I did not pass it because of the lesson plan and essay but I have been practicing and working really hard. I hope I pass it this time.
