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 is an introductory course on the materials that make up the Earth and the processes that modify them. It's important to note that this is a college-level course and you will be expected to understand the material at a much higher level than you will likely incorporate in your classroom. Indulge in this opportunity to educate yourself about the concepts you address in the classroom and how you might provide a more comprehensive experience for your students. You will be glad you did!
This Online Endorsement Course meets the Utah State Science Endorsement Course Requirements for:
- Earth Science: Geology
- Environmental Science: Geology
- Middle Level Science (Pathway 2): Geology
This is a content and classroom teaching course. Emphasis is on best practices used to teach this content in the classroom. 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.). In signing up for this course, you may need to be able to have weekly access to one of these two settings to complete assignments.
Upon successful completion, the participants will receive 3.0 Southern Utah University Credits for EDUC 5201 Science: Geology (included in the cost of the course).
