- Do you have a list of the modules that SfS instructors teach?
- Yes, the module list is available under programs.
- Are the modules organized by grade level?
- We do not break the lessons down by grade per se. The majority of the modules are structured such that additional content can be included or omitted as suits the audience and available time.
- Are the modules available for purchase or download and use by others?
- Our lessons are not available for general use at this time.
- What are the requirements to become an Instructor?
- Candidates must have undergraduate degrees in math, science, or engineering, and must either hold or be currently pursuing a graduate degree in math, science, engineering, or education. In certain cases, the advance degree requirement may be waived if the candidate has relevant professional experience.
Due to the resources invested in training, and need for continuity in program deliver, candidates must be able to commit to teaching for at least one full school year. The full year may consist of either the fall and spring semesters of the same academic year, or spring of one year and fall of the following year.
