Early Field Experiences for Recruiting Future Teachers 

written by Michael Marder and Jason Ermer

We will discuss the role of the two one-hour field-based courses Step I and Step II for recruiting students into secondary science and mathematics teaching at UT Austin. We will discuss organization of the courses and logistics. Then we will describe the effects of the field experiences, and characteristic student accomplishments when teaching their first lessons. We will discuss the reasons to focus on a relatively small number of carefully organized and supported field experiences in comparison  to a large number of relatively unstructured hours in the schools.
