38-6236 Methods&Material Teach Science


This experience-based course is designed to provide elementary school teacher candidates with basic chemistry, biology, physics, and geology concepts; laboratory techniques; and instructional strategies to teach science effectively, both inside and outside the classroom. The course is designed to allow teacher candidates to explore the theories behind science methodology and to give them ample opportunity to practice and develop approaches for teaching science at the elementary school level using a hands-on, minds-on approach. Special attention is given to ways in which elementary school students can be assisted in constructing their own knowledge of science as well as in developing a friendly and inquisitive attitude toward science. Teacher candidates learn how to use ideas, techniques, and strategies for the development of lesson and unit plans that make use of available resources within the classroom and school environment. Teacher candidates are required to observe science lessons in P-8 classroom settings to extend their understanding of effective science teaching.
