This course provides various science-related experiences relevant to the elementary classroom setting. These experiences are intended to enhance knowledge and confidence in teaching science (physical, life and earth). Students will develop a preferred perspective on the ideal nature of science education. Throughout the course students will study and discuss theoretical underpinnings for science instruction, assessment strategies, curriculum material, resources available to teachers, and other relevant ideas. This course is part of the elementary methods-in-teaching semester, which includes an intensive clinical with daily teaching responsibilities.
