$150 SCHOLARSHIP TO TRY TEACHING!
DO YOU LOVE MATH OR SCIENCE? HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT TEACHING?
SIGN-UP FOR TLPL 101! 1 CREDIT
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 in an elementary school science or math classroom.
Advantages to taking the course…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 ONLY a
total of four times during normal public school hours. When doing a lesson,
we suggest that you allow a 3-hour window when you are available to include
travel time, set-up, and wrap-up. All of the schools are on the UM shuttle
line. A background check is required. TLPL 101 will meet for one-hour and
twenty minutes once a week during the semester.
You do not have to be a science or math major to enroll. Try it, you may
Inspire the next generation of scientists or mathematicians!
