VU Gets You into the Classroom

Understanding content is only one part of being a good chemistry teacher.  As a VU education major, you will spend a minimum of 30 hours in the classroom through a program called Initial Experiences in Education.  During this time you will observe, grade papers, plan, and teach at least five classes.  There will be plenty of time to discuss and share ideas with other education majors, develop classroom management skills, and learn how to use the computer as a teaching aid.
