SCTC 1189. Step 1: Inquiry Approaches to Teaching. 1 Credit Hour.

This course is typically offered in Fall and Spring.

This is the first course in the TUteach pedagogy sequence. This course will provide students with an opportunity to explore teaching in science or mathematics as a career; early field experiences in teaching; and an introduction to the theory and practice necessary to prepare and deliver excellent instruction. To obtain first-hand experience with planning and implementing inquiry-based curriculum, students will teach science/mathematics lessons (designed in NSF-funded project) in elementary classrooms in a local school district. Students will attend 1.5 hours of class on campus each week, where they will learn to prepare and deliver excellent science/mathematics lessons. Students, working in teams, will present three lessons in a third, fourth, fifth or sixth grade classroom during the semester. These classrooms are selected both for the diversity of the student body and for the quality of the classroom teacher. Each team of students will have a district classroom teacher and a TUteach master teacher who will work with them to improve their teaching skills as the semester progresses. The district classroom teacher will remain in the classroom at all times and provide immediate feedback on the quality of the instruction. A tuition remission stipend will be paid to those students who successfully complete this course.

Repeatability: This course may be repeated for additional credit.
