Subject: Try Teaching, Earn $150

Description:
DO YOU LOVE MATH OR SCIENCE?  HAVE YOU EVER THOUGHT ABOUT TEACHING?

SIGN-UP FOR TLPL 101!  1 CREDIT - This may fit your schedule.

INSPIRE THE NEXT GENERATION OF SCIENTISTS OR MATHEMATICIANS!

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.  When doing a lesson, we suggest that you allow a 3-hour
window 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.

Course offerings:

Monday, 2:30 pm – 3:50 pm
Monday, 4:00 pm – 5:20 pm
Tuesday, 2:30 pm – 3:50 pm
Tuesday, 4:00 pm – 5:20 pm

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.  We hope to see you
next semester!
