SCED 560 Foundations of Teaching Science to Adolescent Learners

Participants will develop foundational science teaching knowledge, skills, and reflective dispositions that are characteristic of effective beginning secondary science teachers. The course is an active inquiry into the nature and purposes of teaching science. Participants will strengthen their content knowledge, learn ways to investigate their students' prior ideas in science, and design responsive instruction using inquiry approaches. Participants will develop professional reasoning and dispositions by participating in field experiences, professional activities in the community and science education organizations. The course is accompanied by a 50-hour field component.
