SD 005 Introduction to Teaching: 50-Hour
Pre-service Program (Hybrid Course)

This pre-service course is framed around two critical areas: (1) an overview of and preparation for the skills and tools needed for the teaching profession; and (2) essential attitudes and dispositions needed to maintain poise as novice teachers in diverse communities. The course’s primary intention is to provide a snapshot of teaching. For instance, it addresses concerns related to personal expectations and actualities. Moreover, the course prepares participants to begin their search for a new job. For many, this means understanding what schools are looking for in teachers, recognizing education buzzwords and preparing demonstration lessons. This course is comprised of 50 hours including 30 hours of instruction, 8 hours of classroom observation, and 12 hours of clinical experience. The course will provide the participant with a “clinical” opportunity through structured observations in a school setting. Collaboration with school districts will provide both a window of opportunity for the candidate and a potential recruitment tool for the district. In addition, 12 hours of clinical work such as tutoring or substitute teaching will offer candidates the opportunity to work with students in an authentic environment. Required text: Introduction to Teaching, by Fran Levin (available in the Continuing Education section of the Bergen Community College Bookstore).
