The Mathematics Coach Endorsement Program is a Pennsylvania Department of Education approved 12-credit program intended to improve a teacher’s mathematics content knowledge. An endorsement is added to a teacher’s existing Level I or Level II Certification.
This 15-credit graduate certificate: Teaching Writing and Literacy program is similar to the Pennsylvania Department of Education’s range of educational endorsements and is designed to afford educators deep study in all aspects of teaching literacy. It provides the teacher with real-world skills for implementing the writing requirements of the PA Core Standards.
