UTeach Extension

UTeach Extension is on hiatus. We'll be sure to let students know when it returns. In the meantime, check out the PDFs and PPTs below for information about past sessions.

UTeach Extension is an informal monthly gathering where UTeach students can spend additional time learning about and discussing topics of interest (and having some free food!).

Topics are chosen based on the interests and suggestions of UTeach students, so let us know what's on your mind!


Here's a list of some past topics have included (handouts from past sessions are below in the "attachments" section, organized by date)

  • 02/17/2012, The Well-Crafted Worksheet. Can you imagine "teaching with your mouth shut"? Join Jason to discuss strategies for creating handouts and worksheets that will let students do the talking -- and the thinking! (This is a repeat session. Please see handouts from 10/08/2010.)
  • 03/20/2012, Interview Skills for Teachers. Are you ready to interview for your first teaching job? Join us to learn about common interview questions for teachers, and to participate in mock interviews. Everyone is welcome, not just folks getting close to graduation! (This is a repeat session. Please see handouts from 11/04/2011.)
  • 04/27/2012, Rubrics 101. What is a rubric? How do I make one? How can I use rubrics to support student learning? Join Jason and Shelly as they discuss how to create and use rubrics in your classroom.
