Subject: $150 Scholarship to Try Teaching, TLPL 101

Description:
$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
like it.
Inspire the next generation of scientists or mathematicians!
