If you wish to add an endorsement in a Pk-12 area such as Special Education or English as a Second Language, you may either pass the appropriate Praxis content knowledge exam in the new subject area or complete a degree major or equivalent (30 semester hours) in the new subject area. Any Principles of Learning and Teaching (PLT) exam will satisfy the pedagogy exam requirement, so most applicants will not need to pass a new PLT exam. More information is available on the Add Another Teaching Endorsement web page.
