CalTeach program builds pathway for tomorrow’s math and science teachers

UCI’s CalTeach program allows undergraduates to earn their teaching credential while also earning their bachelor’s in science or math. The program is also transitioning toward “ungrading” in its education courses, as well as flexible due dates for assignments. The aim is to reduce stress for its 250 students, who are already in notoriously challenging classes for their majors. Students also practice grounding exercises at the beginning of each class to help focus and center themselves.
