Students who want to explore teaching careers become familiar with the middle school setting by observing and discussing the middle school environment, and by teaching several lessons to a middle school class. They build upon and practice lesson design skills that were developed in Step 1 and also become familiar with excellent science and mathematics curricula for the middle school setting. As a result of the Step 2 experiences, students generally are able to make a decision as to whether they want to pursue a pathway to teacher certification through the UTeach program. UTCH 2001 is a prerequisite for this course.
