ED 419 - Teaching Methods in Secondary Science


A study of pedagogy, science content, and techniques applicable to the teaching of science to secondary school students. Science teaching must be in line with relevant and authentic science information in order to improve the scientific literacy of all people. It emphasizes process skills and hands-on, minds-on experiences through which students develop their own questions about phenomena that interest them and seek their own answers to those questions through activities that they themselves devise. Course participants will experience Science as Inquiry, best teaching strategies, and inquiry activities necessary to teach science in contemporary ways to secondary school students. This course offers in-service and pre-service teachers a chance to become directly involved in a constructivist approach that is organized around the National Science Education Standards.
