The STEM Lab Initiative (SLI) is an exciting opportunity for science and math Teacher Education students to participate in a rich, meaningful, and directed field experience. SLI connects students from underrepresented teacher populations with a cooperating high school instructor to plan, teach, and assess two in-class science labs or two in-class math manipulative lessons. Over the course of 12 weeks UWRF students are immersed in a middle/high school classroom as paid teaching assistants – working and learning alongside their cooperating instructors.
The core principles that serve as the impetus for the STEM Lab Initiative are:
