I am often asked what are the qualifications required to teach in middle schools and high schools.
Let us take John Doe as an example who is in his post graduate work in Science. If he passes the CSET, what other training is necessary in order for him to become a teacher?
Whether you live in California and have to pass the CSET, or another state like Texas, all states require the following items for a teaching credential: Subject matter verification (like the CSET in California), student teaching from an approved program, a credential program like university classes on teaching methods and curriculum, and various other tests like the CBEST.

Many CSET test takers get hammered by the stages of writing question on the CSET. Don’t be one of them. The stages of writing and vocabulary development in children represent a conceptional way to understand how vocabulary and writing in children develops. Once a conceptional understanding of writing is developed, one can then divide this development into concrete stages for the purpose of facilitating the writing developmental process. Children should never be discouraged from exploring writing by the means they are able to do, whether it be scribbling, invented spelling, or conventional spelling.
In the video below, we examine the following stages of writing development: Preliterate/Prephonetic Stage (Kindergarten and some First Graders), Early Letter-Name Stage (First Grade), Late Letter-Name Stage (First and Second Grades), Within-Word Pattern Stage (Second and Third Grades, some Fourth Graders), and the Syllable Juncture Stage (Fourth, Fifth, and Sixth Grades).
