Confused About Content Area Identification?
The state of Texas requires us to identify a content area for enrollment. But, sometimes applicants will want to teach in a different area than what they have received their undergraduate degree in. It’s important to be aware of state requirements for teaching the subject you prefer. Referred to as “content area,” these can be initially confusing to understand, but this video will make it much clearer.
Still have questions? Check out these additional resources on Content Area Identification in Texas to learn more. Remember this information is specific to the state of Texas, and requirements may be different in your state.
Visit the content area identification web page.
Read our blog post about content area selection.
When can I start teaching?
The iteach program is designed to be self-paced, allowing you to complete your coursework whenever you are available. From the point of application to the completion of courses 5000-5300, the completion of observation hours (if required by your state), payment plan set up, and the passing of your specific content tests, you will then be eligible for hire. At this point, it is estimated to be anywhere from 1-6 weeks since the point of application.
Free Access to the Teaching Channel
Teaching Channel is a thriving online community where teachers can watch, share, and learn diverse techniques to help every student grow. When enrolled in iteach, you will have free access to the Teaching Channel. Through these videos, you’ll have immediate access to 15 hours of observation as soon as you enroll in iteach.
