This course can be used for Hawaii DOE TESOL requirement!

Course#: EDEU 9018

Credit: 3 semester hours of Graduate credit from UMass Global

Cost: $400


Course Description

One of the essential components of almost every student’s success in school is a supportive and engaged parent. This is especially true for TESOL students as they are dealing with the challenge of learning the curriculum in another language. In this class, we will present a 5 step program to provide teachers with the knowledge and tools to help the parents of TESOL students to become the supportive and encouraging parent that their student needs to succeed.


This course consists of 4 modules. Each module has a PowerPoint presentation that you will watch and then complete the accompanying worksheets.

You can choose to have each module sent to you as you complete it, or we can send you all of the modules at the same time.

You will have up to 6 months to complete the class. Credit for the class can’t be granted sooner than one month after registering even if you complete all the modules before that time.

Once you have completed the class, you will receive an email from the University of Massachusetts Global with your student account. It will have a login and password for you to be able to access your grades and request a transcript.

If you have any questions or concerns as you view the PowerPoints and complete the written work, please contact Emily LoVerde Berchier at:
