SCED 542 Light and Color

An examination of how science ideas are constructed in informal and formal social settings. The course investigates and begins with the investigation of the formation of shadows and images. The course then develops a mental model that helps students account for the behavior of light in the formation of images and the effects of color. Exemplary science teaching methods will be demonstrated and evaluated. Research focusing on elementary students' formal and naive science understanding of light and color will be examined.
