Among his publications are a series of books to prepare pre-service teachers for certification tests, including REA’s best-selling TExES Bilingual Generalist EC-6 (192), and Desarrollo del Español para Maestros en Programas de Educación Bilingüe (Spanish Development for Teachers in Bilingual Education Programs), for which, with co-author Lidia Morris, he earned first place in the 2014 International Latino Book Awards in the category of Best Reference Book—Spanish or Bilingual. The book, which is intended, Dr. Rosado says, “to polish Spanish, not to teach Spanish,” is being used by several universities and a number of Texas school districts.
