Brandman University is piloting a CBEST workshop to support future teachers.
As the demand for credentialed teachers grows, school districts say the California Basic Educational Skills Test (CBEST) is a stumbling block for some individuals trying to enter the education field. Brandman partnered with Princeton Review to create a hands-on resource to help students master the CBEST. The result is the Crack the CBEST workshop presented by the Princeton Review, creators of the test preparation guide of the same name.
The $99 course gives participants three hours of expert instruction, test-taking tips, practice tests and the “Cracking the CBEST” test preparation book. The first workshop will be held April 1 from 9 a.m. to noon, at the Irvine campus and linked virtually via Telepresence to the Roseville and San Diego campuses. Heidi Torres, a master tutor with Princeton Review, will lead the class. She holds a multiple subject teaching credential and has been a Princeton Review teacher and tutor since 2009. She co-wrote the third edition of “Cracking the CBEST.”
Update: The Santa Maria campus had planned to host a workshop on April 22. It has been canceled.
The Modesto campus was scheduled to host a workshop on April 24. It has also been canceled.
