45 - Hour classes for Math and Literacy

Rowan does not offer the 45 hour classes for math and literacy that some of you need.

[In addition to the 200 hours of formal instruction required of alternate route teachers, novice K-5 alternate route teachers hired as of October 31, 2009 must complete an additional 90 hours of instruction, for a total of 290 hours, in a department-approved program. Of these 90 hours, 45 are in the teaching of mathematics at the K-5 level and 45 are in the teaching of language arts literacy at the K-5 level. This requirement may be fulfilled by previously completed coursework or through previous experience (see state web site).
