English may seem like an easy subject – after all, most of us read, write and speak it expertly. However, teaching English is a lot more than teaching proper grammar. It encompasses various reading materials, essays, presentations and so much more. In order to teach English to Florida students, you must prove your proficiency in the language by passing the FTCE English 6–12 test.

The FTCE English 6–12 exam is different from other FTCE tests in that it is split into two sections. One section consists of 80 multiple-choice questions, while the other requires you to write an essay. You are given one hour and 30 minutes to answer the questions, and another hour to write the essay.
In order to pass, you must score at least 200 on the multiple-choice portion and get at least eight out of 12 points on the essay. The fee for the full battery of tests is $200.
The multiple-choice portion will assess your knowledge of five key competencies: use of English language, effective writing skills, literacy processes across genres, knowledge of fiction, nonfiction and informational texts, and critical responses to media.
The skills you will need to know in order to pass include proficiency with English grammar, academic language, parts of speech, instructional strategies, forms of writing, the writing process, assessment and feedback, text structure, literacy processes, rhetoric, authors from various time periods, and use of various technologies to aid in speaking, listening and presenting.
In the written performance section, you will be asked to write an essay, which will be graded based on your ability to analyze text and critically respond to it. You must be able to organize your ideas, including supporting details and use appropriate style all in postsecondary English to respond to a thesis statement.
