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

Physics Endorsement Program

This program provides currently certified, in any subject area, an endorsement to teach physics through a combination of NJCTL Online Courses for Teachers; Online Field Experience Courses; and State Teacher Certification (i.e. Praxis) examinations. NJCTL Online Courses for Teachers provide all the required instruction in both physics content and teaching methods.

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 receive classroom coaching as part of the Online Field Experience Courses.

Mix and match physics courses to meet the teacher endorsement requirements for your state.  Contact your state department of education to verify that these courses will properly support your pursuit of an additional endorsement in physics in your state.
