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 10:00AM and 2:00PM, 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).
