UCLA CalTeach is now accepting applications for our Winter Quarter 2017 seminars and internships!
Right now, in the state of California, there is a huge shortage of qualified science and math teachers to teach middle and high school science and math. To address this issue, we offer UCLA undergraduate science, engineering and math majors the opportunity to explore teaching as a career to see if this is something that you might like to do in the future.
Specifically, we offer quarterly seminars and internships that allow UCLA students to go out to elementary, middle, and high schools to help out with math activities at the school, interact with kids, and observe different teachers in action.
We are offering the following courses (with internships) for Winter 2017:
1) Math 71SL (Elementary School, Math Focus) – 2 units, pass/no pass
2) Science Education 1SL (Elementary School, Science Focus) – 2 units, pass/no pass
3) Science Education 100SL (High School, Science Focus) – 5 units, grade
Each course is associated with a 2-4 hour per week internship at a local, public school (for a total of 24 hours over the quarter).
If you (or one of your friends) is interested in applying, please go to our web site to learn more about each course, and also to fill out the online application:

However, we will continue to accept applications until all spots are filled through the first week of Winter Quarter. Once you have filled out the online application and are accepted into the course, we will send you a PTE number (permission to enroll) through MyUCLA.
