How do I apply to the UCCSTeach program
As an undergraduate, you can take the first two classes in our program (UTED 1010 - Step I and UTED 1020 - Step II) without formal application to the UCCSTeach program. During the third class, you will be required to formally apply to the program.
The starting point for UCCSTeach is Step 1: Inquiry Approaches to Teaching (UTED 1010). This course is open to all undergraduates and offers undergraduates an opportunity to try out teaching with real students in local elementary schools. The next step is Step 2: Inquiry-based Lesson Design (UTED 1020). Here you build off the experiences of Step 1 to develop your instructional practices, at the middle school level. Step 1 is a prerequisite to Step 2. The major goal of both Step 1 and 2 is to offer students experiences that help them decide whether teaching science or mathematics is a career path they want to pursue.
Can I take the Step courses without committing to the rest of the UCCSTeach Program?
