Getting Started

Try out teaching by enrolling in Step 1 and then Step 2.

Step 1: Inquiry Approaches to Teaching (1 credit hour)
In Step 1, you will obtain first-hand experience with planning and teaching inquiry-based math, science, or computer science lessons in elementary classrooms. A veteran classroom teacher will guide and mentor you through this entire experience.

Step 2: Inquiry-Based Lesson Design (1 credit hour)
In Step 2, you will build on lesson-planning skills developed in Step 1 and become familiar with the middle school environment. You will observe middle school culture and teach several lessons to a middle school math, science, or computer science class. As in Step 1, you will have guidance from a veteran classroom teacher as you plan and teach your lessons.
