USBE has instituted a reimbursement program for teachers getting their endorsements.  You qualify to get reimbursed the full $500 if you pass with a C or better, IF YOUR DISTRICT is willing to work with USBE.  Contact your district for details and for verification that you will be reimbursed.  UtSTA, will NOT be reimbursing you.  If your district does not participant in this new program, the $500 is not refundable. 

This course will introduce you to the basics of evolution learning about natural selection, speciation, adaptations, evidences and classification. Evolution is the foundation of biology and the unifying concept that ties all living things together. In this class you will also define the difference between science and religion to help you as a teacher know how to respond to the questions and concerns that students have about evolution.

This Online Endorsement Course meets the Utah State Science Endorsement Course Requirements for:

  • Biology: Evolutionary Biology
  • Environmental Science: Evolutionary Biology

This course is a content and teaching course.  Emphasis is on best practices used to teach this content in your classroom. Creating lesson plans are required. Additionally, the online science endorsement courses require participants to practice the science lessons in either a classroom setting or with a group of at least five individuals (can be family, friends, neighbors, etc.).
