Subject: $150 Scholarship to Try 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 in an elementary school science or math classroom.
TLPL 101 (1 credit) and TLPL 102 (2 credits) combined (3 credits) fulfill the
scholarship in practice general education requirement.
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 (7:30 am - 3:00 pm). 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. Fingerprinting is required. The cost of fingerprinting will be
incurred by Terrapin Teachers.
TLPL 101 will meet for one-hour and twenty minutes once a week.
You do not have to be a science or math major to enroll. Try it, you may
