STEMteach Courses

How do I begin?

  1. Add STEMteach to your Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics, science, or computer science. Take STEP 1 (STEM 1100) for course tuition reimbursement. Working closely with a Master Teacher, you will design lessons and learn teaching strategies through a hands-on approach. You will experience teaching three lessons in a local elementary school.
  2. If you like it, take STEP 2 (STEM 1101) where your Master Teacher will help you to develop additional lessons that will be taught for students in an area middle school. You will experience teaching three lessons in a local middle school.
  3. Extensive early field (teaching and observing 2 hours each week) is required for STEM 2301 (spring only) and STEM 3300 (fall only). Please remember to make adjustments to include travel time when creating your course schedules. This early experience in the classroom will prepare you to dive into the rest of the program to become a highly qualified secondary school math, science, or computer science teacher.
