Substantial Mod: K-8 Mathematics Lead - Teacher & Retitle: Mathematics Instructional Leader PreK - 6 Program Description
Johns Hopkins University (JHU) has submitted a proposal to substantially modify the existing Post-Baccalaureate Certificate (P.B.C.) in K-8 Mathematics Lead-Teacher Teacher by updating the curriculum and adding an online instruction version of the program. Additionally, JHU is requesting to change the title of the certificate to Mathematics Instructional Leader (PreK – 6).  The 18-credit hour certificate curriculum has been modified to enhance mathematical content knowledge and elementary mathematical pedagogical content knowledge of elementary teachers.  The proposed modifications are aligned with the Common Core State Standards in Mathematics and emphasize updated research to practice approach and problem-based methods, melding mathematics content with pedagogy.
