Thoughts on Teacherhood
What can we learn from children not yet old enough to graduate elementary school? We’ll talk this hour with award-winning teacher Phillip Done, whose new book is “Close Encounters of the Third-Grade Kind” (Center Street, 2009).

Be thinking about ways you can incorporate some of these literacy strategies into your teaching as well.
The UTA McNair Scholars Program requests your assistance during its annual recruitment campaign (October 1 – November 6, 2009). This federally funded initiative assists eligible undergraduates to prepare for careers in university research and teaching. Although the program is open to all majors, we especially encourage those students focusing on science, technology, engineering and math to apply. We would appreciate your referring to the program all interested undergraduates with the potential to succeed in graduate study.
We also invite you to join us at the McNair Open House on Monday, October 12, anytime between 11:00 and 1:00 p.m., to meet McNair Scholars, staff and past mentors, and to enjoy light refreshments.
Program benefits include:
Membership in a nationally recognized graduate school preparatory program
Opportunities to learn more about graduate school, research, and university teaching
Participation in the McNair Summer Research Internship between the junior and senior years (interns work with a faculty mentor and receive a $3,000 student stipend)
A scholarship for three credits of independent study (related to your summer project)
Free GRE prep courses
Travel to undergraduate research (or professional) conferences and graduate schools
Plus many other benefits.
To qualify for the McNair Scholars Program students must:
be a sophomore (by spring 2010), junior or senior (not graduating before December 2010)
have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.9 (by the end of fall 2009)
be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident,
Be either first-generation and low-income or a member of one of several minority groups underrepresented in graduate education (African American, Hispanic, Native American/Native Alaskan/Native Hawaiian).
As of October 1, application packets are available in 122 Hammond Hall or can be downloaded from the McNair website (www.uta.edu/soar ~ click on Quick Links/McNair Application). Interested students may also request that packets be mailed to them (please call 817-272-3715).
