UW/CC Helps with Path to Endorsements in the Physical Sciences
Teachers and students majoring in the secondary science education and math/science fields, you are encouraged to enroll in any of the courses offered through the UW/CC Center Academy for Educators, a new program geared to help you work toward an endorsement in physical science. Through the generous funding of the Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES), current NCSD teachers are eligible for a reduced tuition rate. With financial assistance from BOCES, the UW/CC Center is mounting a slate of UW three-credit courses designed to help meet the requirements for these endorsements. Five courses will be available during summer 2011 that can be integrated into a personalized program to help you attain an endorsement in the physical sciences.
- Flora of the Rocky Mountains (BOT 4640): Evert Brown, Instructor
- Introduction to Inorganic Chemistry (CHEM 4110): Miko Millan, Instructor
- Weather and Climate (GEOG 3450): Kathleen Thatcher, Instructor
- General Ecology (LIFE 3400): Zac Roehrs, Instructor
Each of these courses contribute to different endorsement areas, or contribute to endorsements in different ways. Contact education adviser Tanya Sell for information on the appropriate courses for the endorsement you are pursuing.
In addition, the Academy for Educators is offering a contemporary course which focuses on a prevalent issue in today's classrooms. While the course does not contribute to a science endorsement, the NCSD has identified the topic as a need for teachers.
- Introduction to Autism (EDEL 4975): Kathleen Wille, Instructor
All courses begin after the Natrona County School District's school year ends.
