CABE Academy


Whittier College is partnering with the California Association for Bilingual Education (CABE) to offer a Graduate Unit Partnership for teachers participating in the CABE Dual Language Teacher Academy (DLTA).

What is the Graduate Unit Partnership with Whittier College?

After completing each DLTA module, participating teachers have the opportunity to enroll in EDUC 698 and earn one graduate school credit by completing six (6) hours of independent work involving reflection assignments.

What are the requirements for EDUC 698?

For each module, the required assignment involves a three-part written reflection on the module prompt.

All three parts must be clearly identified in the paper to receive full credit:

  1. What was learned about the module prompt and how it builds upon prior knowledge and pedagogical practice?
  2. How were the additional references/sources incorporated into the reflection?
  3. How were lessons learned from the module class and readings applied to a classroom setting?

Additional requirements

  • Three (3) pages typed, double-spaced
  • At least 1-2 references cited related to assignment and module content
  • Should equal at least 6 hours independent work (beyond module on-site attendance)

How do I enroll in the EDUC 698?

Once you have completed the in-person module and written reflection submit the following via the online form.  

  • On-site module attendance verification: presenter name, presentation date, and signature from professional development presenter
  • Completed assignment
  • Fee: $150 per 1 graduate unit (1 graduate unit offered per module)

Follow the online instructions for registration and submission. For any questions contact Professor of Education Ivannia Soto at
