What is M.O.S.T.?

M.O.S.T. is paid, early-field experience offered each quarter for undergrad students who seek an experience to "try on teaching."

M.O.S.T. offers a unique opportunity to try on teaching in an off-campus, structured environment in tandem with weekly seminar discussions focused on effective teaching strategies.

Application of the effective teaching strategies are used to plan, prepare, and present Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (S.T.E.A.M.) content to local elementary school students in a small group, after-school setting.
