ED 6260 - Teaching Middle and Secondary School Science

(ED 4260)

This course examines the goals, principles and procedures of science education in elementary schools. Science is examined as both a process and product. Students examine the roles of developing students’ science process skills and understanding of the nature of science as these issues relate to teaching science for concept attainment. The role of science-technology-society connections in science education is emphasized. Issues of successful teaching and learning for a broad range of science learners are addressed. This class requires a non-credit field placement experience. The graduate-level course requires independent accelerated additional coursework appropriate for the graduate level.
