Are you an already certified New Jersey teacher looking to earn an additional endorsement?

Middle School Mathematics Endorsement Program

This program provides currently certified New Jersey teachers, in any subject area, an endorsement to teach Middle School Mathematics through a combination of NJCTL's Online Courses for Teachers; Field Experience Courses; and Praxis II examination. NJCTL's Online Courses for Teachers provide all the required instruction in both mathematics content and teaching methods.
  • Teachers complete the first three Online Courses for Teachers; Teaching Methods (MET-6101), Learning,Teaching Pre-Algebra (MATH-6401); and Learning and Teaching Algebra I (MATH-6403) before entering the classroom in the fall.
  • Teachers then take two Field Experience Courses, MATH-6402 in the fall; and MATH-6404 in the spring, in which they teach PMI Grade 5 Mathematics, Grade 6 Mathematics, Grade 7 Mathematics, or Grade 8 Mathematics to at least one section of students while receiving coaching and support from NJCTL.
  • During the Field Experience, teachers take two additional Online Courses for Teachers, Learning and Teaching Geometry (MATH-6405); and Middle School Mathematics Capstone with Praxis Prep (MATH-6411).

Upon successfully completing these five Online Courses for Teachers, and the two Field Experiences Courses, and passing the Middle School Mathematics (5169) Praxis, the candidate can apply to the New Jersey Department of Education for an endorsement to teach Middle School with Subject Matter Specialization: Mathematics in Grades 5-8. Please note that issuance of the Middle School with Subject Matter Specialization endorsement will be contingent upon eligibility and/or issuance of the Elementary School or N-12 subject matter certificate.

For more details see: learning about the PSI and PMI curriculum.

While NJCTL Online Courses for Teachers are asynchronous, so they can be taken anytime, anywhere, we recommend starting on suggested dates to be part of a cohort. Also, “virtual office hours” will be in place for each course using Zoom; by being part of a cohort, those Zoom sessions will be more productive. All content courses will be offered completely online through asynchronous courses. Teachers will still receive classroom coaching visits as part of the Field Experience Courses.

This teacher endorsement program is approved by the New Jersey Department of Education.
