Subject: $150 to Try Teaching! Inspire the Next Generation of Scientists and
Do you have a passion for science or math? Are you looking for a one-credit
elective to flesh out your schedule? Have you ever thought about teaching?
Here's a chance to try teaching and earn a $150 scholarship for completing
the course with a "B" grade or higher. The course will focus on
inquiry-based teaching. You will strengthen your oral communication and
organization skills. The course requires that you observe a local elementary
school teacher twice and then teach two science or math lessons. Yes, that's
correct. You are required to be in the elementary school a total of four
times. We suggest that you allow a 3-hour window to include travel time,
set-up, and wrap-up when teaching the lessons. All of the schools are on the
UM shuttle line. A background check is required. TLPL 101 meets for
one-hour and twenty minutes once a week.
This is a way to give back to the local schools in the UM community. Share
your passion and inspire the next generation!
