Content Knowledge Proficiency

In order to receive an educator license in Wisconsin, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction requires applicants to demonstrate competency in the content knowledge of their specific license area.


In this experience, the candidate will teach in the content area(s) in which they are seeking an additional license(s). Hours may be split across the same course but to two different sections of students, two different content courses or levels related to the new license, or one content course if the school uses block scheduling.


Create a professional portfolio, 
aligned with the InTASC Standards, to document your growth in knowledge, skills and dispositions in the new developmental area.

You will be applying through the ELO for your license application
