As a Teaching Assistant (TA), you would be responsible for instructing undergraduate
laboratories or discussion sections in physics or astronomy. The time required for this work is
about 15-20 hours per week, including student contact time, preparation, and grading.

In case you go to a school that does you will have to teach a lab and the whatever + grade for that class. In order cases you just teach lab and grade. In some cases you just grade depending on what type of course (upperdivision. graduate). It will be somewhere around 15 to 20 hours a week depending on length of lab, no. of recitations, amount of grading, and of course required office hours
