Subject: $100 Scholarship, TLPL 101, Explore a Teaching Career

Description:
Do you have a passion for math or science?

Try Teaching! No obligation to continue in the course sequence.

TLPL 101 (1 cr) + TLPL 102 (2 cr) satisfies the Scholarship in Practice
general education requirement.

This course encourages students to think deeply about what it means to learn
and teach math and science. The main goals are to begin to understand the
teaching profession, the complexity of the classroom, and start to develop
teaching practices that are responsive to student ideas.

You will be matched with a partner from your class, and a teacher in a local
elementary school. Over the course of the semester, you and your partner will
visit this teacher’s classroom to conduct two observations and teach two
inquiry-based lessons. Your class schedule must allow for a 3-hour window of
time, preferably twice weekly, during the local elementary school hours
(7:45am-3:15pm) to complete the four fieldwork assignments. All schools are
close to campus and accessible via public transportation. Terrapin Teachers
will pay for the fingerprinting that is required prior to visiting the
school.
