Please make a note of the days and times of JumpStart week requirements and plan accordingly. The changes to the schedule for JumpStart week are not permanent; the posted schedule (available here: http://www.csus.edu/coe/academics/credentials/resources/index.html) will be in effect from September 5th until the end of the fall term.

SUMMER READING FOR ALL CANDIDATES 

Please complete the assigned summer readings prior to the first day of orientation.  These readings form the foundation of our program’s philosophy and therefore pertain, in some way, to all of your program experiences. They are, in addition, required readings for the EDTE334A/B Principles of Teaching course. (Books should be purchased through Amazon where they will be less expensive than the Hornet Bookstore. Books will be used all year long so renting is also a good option.)
