1. Teaching and Presentation Skills: Digitally recorded teaching presentations, tutorials, and peer feedback.

2. Communication Skills: Practice ways to improve your classroom communication skills.

3. Cultural Background: Discussion of the TA's role, undergraduates' expectations of a TA, and the unique aspects of the US educational system.
