Amy teaching

Interested in science or mathematics? Have you ever considered teaching?

The OSUTeach program provides science (biological science, chemistry, geology, physics, and zoology) and mathematics majors with the opportunity to try out teaching in elementary and middle school classrooms in SMED 1012, Inquiry Approaches to Teaching.  This two hour course will help students decide if they want to pursue a science or mathematics degree with a secondary teacher certification option. These degrees provide students with flexibility in future careers by preparing them with strong content knowledge in their discipline, as well as the professional education courses necessary for a successful secondary teaching career.

SMED 1012 - Inquiry Approaches to Teaching, Step 1: Students design and teach using lessons they have written based on district curriculum.

Students wanting to enroll in STEP 1 should talk with their academic advisor to learn more about the class (please call 405-744-6350 to schedule an appointment with an advisor). Students do not need to declare a secondary teacher certification option to enroll in these courses. However, students who select one of the secondary teacher certification options will become eligible for other opportunities available through the OSUTeach program, such as grants and scholarships.
