About This Book
REA’s The Best Teachers’ Test Preparation for the GACE Professional Pedagogy Assessment (Test Codes 171 and 172) is a comprehensive guide designed to assist you in preparing to take the GACE Professional Pedagogy Assessment. This test was created to assess the knowledge and skills of individuals seeking an alternative route to teacher certification.
To teach in the Georgia public schools system, prospective educators who have not completed a state-approved teacher preparation program are required to pass the GACE Professional Pedagogy Assessment (Test Codes 171 and 172) as well as the GACE Basic Skills Assessment and the appropriate GACE content area assessment. This is the testing approach to certification, as opposed to the traditional approach, which requires you to take courses through a college system, a regional educational service agency (RESA), or a university.
To help you succeed in this important step toward your teaching career in Georgia schools, this test guide features the following:
An accurate and complete overview of the GACE Professional Pedagogy Assessment
A targeted review of each subarea
Tips and strategies for successfully passing the test
Diagnostic tools to identify areas of strength and weakness
Two full-length, true-to-format practice tests for each part of the Pedagogy assessment based on the most recently administered GACE Professional Pedagogy Assessment
Detailed explanations of each answer on the practice tests
When creating this test preparation guide, we at REA considered the most recent test administrations and professional standards. We also researched information from the Georgia Department of Education, professional journals, textbooks, and educators. The result is the best GACE test preparation materials based on the latest information available.
