Preparing teachers to teach the Core Curriculum in Mathematics and for State of Illinois Middle Grades Endorsements in Mathematics and Science

Please note: ISBE changed their requirements for a Middle Grade endorsement.

Welcome. The SESAME Program at the University of Chicago offers a variety of mathematics and science content courses that place a strong emphasis on content and the conceptual foundations of the subject, along with strategies and pedagogical techniques for bringing this content to the classroom. Our courses follow the ISBE math and science learning standards. Our goal is to provide knowledgeable teachers who can deliver the subject matter to middle grade students in a highly effective way. Anyone may participate in our courses, even if he or she does not have an active teaching position.

Please note: The SESAME Program is not a degree-seeking program, and this credit does not count towards a Masters Degree at the University of Chicago.
