The Rutgers Center For Effective School Practice’s Alternate Route program regularly engages candidates in professional learning exercises that go beyond satisfying the requirements of New Jersey’s teacher certification process. These assignments are designed to prepare our candidates for success in the classroom, while also positioning them as contributors to the profession and teacher leaders.
Over 200 alternate route candidates recently submitted reviews of free online resources that align with NJ Professional Standards for Teachers (NJPTS):
- Content knowledge (Standard 4)
- Application of content (Standard 5)
- Assessment (Standard 6)
- Planning for instruction (Standard 7)
- Instructional strategies (Standard 8)
This comprehensive review of free tools available to K12 teachers has been consolidated into a blog series for the benefit of the greater NJ teaching community. From this directory, teachers across all grade levels and content areas will be able to source digital resources that can be incorporated into their daily teaching practice.
