Frequently Asked Questions

Degrees & Programs

What teaching endorsements are available?

See our STEM Education Degrees page for details.

How long does it take to add a STEM teaching certificate?

IDoTeach coursework is designed to be completed alongside an undergraduate STEM degree at Boise State. In many cases, students can complete the teaching coursework in as little as 2 years.

Courses

How do I request materials for my lesson?

Please submit the materials request form.

Can I request copies for an upcoming lesson?

Yes, but you will need to print your own master first (see printing options below). Bring your master to the IDoTeach offices between 8:00AM and 3:00PM, Monday – Friday, and we will help you make additional black & white copies.

If you don’t have a printer at home, there are printers available around campus for student use. All undergraduate and graduate students registered for academic credit (without fee waivers) receive a printing balance of $15 per semester (about 214 pages/semester at $ .07 per page).

When should I submit materials requests?

The sooner the better! Materials requests should be submitted at least 2 business days in advance of the check out date. For example, if your check out date is on a Monday, your materials request should be submitted no later than the Thursday before. If your materials request is submitted less than 2 business days before the check out date, we may not be able to fulfill your request.

What should I put for the materials request checkout date?

The checkout date for materials should be the first day you need access to the materials, like for practice lesson days.

When are materials due back?

Materials must be returned the business day after the lesson date. If your lesson is on Monday, materials are due back Tuesday. If your lesson is on Friday, materials are due back Monday.
