24 Hr Pre-Service Intro to Teaching 8/19-21, 2013

The 24 Hour Pre-service Introduction to the Teaching Profession Program provides an introduction and orientation to those exploring the possibility of becoming a teacher or interested in an alternate route to teaching certification program by obtaining an Elementary or Secondary Certificate of Eligibility (CE). The program is designed to provide a framework of ways to explore what works in schools, improve student achievement, develop a vocabulary for the profession, become familiar with the New Jersey Professional Standards for Teachers and the New Jersey Core Curriculum Standards and how to coordinate these standards with lessons.  Participants in the program are required to complete twenty (20) hours of a seminar which includes the following themes: Overview of the Teaching Profession, Classroom Management, Lesson Planning, Best Practices in Learning Strategies and Literacy Instruction, The Many Faces of Diversity, Technology: Productivity and Professional Practice, Home-School Connection, and Finding a Teaching Position. Participants must complete four hours (4) of classroom observation at the grade level and/or in the content area applicable for the desired certification. The completion of required assignments along with the required attendance, classroom activities and participation will serve as an assessment of the participant’s knowledge and understanding of how children learn. The assessments will also provide the participant with an understanding of appropriate instructional strategies that promote critical and creative thinking which supports student learning for all children.
