Who can participate in JacksTeach?
Step 1 and Step 2 are open to all STEM majors. Students who are undecided, but curious about teaching, are encouraged to register for Step 1 and visit with JacksTeach co-directors or master teachers.
In the one-hour Step 1 course, students learn how to write effective lesson plans. Engaging, inquiry-based lessons in science and math will be modeled and practiced. Students will present three lessons within an upper elementary classroom.
During Step 2, students continue to develop their lesson planning skills while integrating technology in this one-hour course. Three lessons will be taught in a middle school mathematics or science classroom.
Each class meets once per week with no exams, quizzes or finals required.
