Subject: $150 Scholarship to Try Teaching

Description:
DO YOU LOVE MATH OR SCIENCE?  HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT TEACHING?  SIGN-UP
FOR TLPL 101!

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.

Please visit us at the Toll Physics Building, room 1108 for more information.
