Below is pertinent information related to the 50-Hour Workshop.
Bridge Course: Upgrading your P-3 24-Hour Certificate
Do you need to upgrade your P-3 24-Hour Certificate to a 50-Hour Certificate? This bridge program is designed for participants who have completed the P-3 24-hour workshop (at Kean University) and wish to upgrade to a 50-hour certificate. You will earn the additional 26 hours needed by: conducting a 20-hour field experience; preparing and delivering a lesson plan; writing a field experience reflection, and keeping an activity log. There is no fee for this program (Kean University Students only). If you hold a provisional license, you do not need to take the Bridge Program.

Additionally, all candidates will complete a 20-hour clinical experience which will be composed of: 10 hours of structured academic tutoring (1-1 direct instruction or small group instruction) and 10 hours placed in a Kean PDS assigned to a cooperating teacher providing direct instruction to small groups and co-teaching when appropriate. You may only participate in the 50-Hour Program if you are participating in Kean's Alternate Route Program.
Flexibility will be given to candidates who prefer to complete 20 hours in a Kean PDS with a cooperating teacher due to scheduling conflicts, in lieu of completing the tutoring opportunity. For further information, please contact Liz Satchell: email@example.com
