Introduction to Teaching (50 hours)
Alternate route teacher candidates must take Introduction to Teaching in order to obtain a Certificate of Eligibility (CE), the first step towards Standard Certification.
This course is comprised of 50 hours including 30 hours of instruction, 8 hours of classroom observation, and 12 hours of clinical experience. The program should provide the participant with a “clinical” opportunity through structured observations in a school setting. Collaboration with school districts will provide both a window for the candidate and a potential recruitment tool for the district.
