EDU 3360 - Teaching Science, Health & Physical Education

Credits: 4
This inquiry-based course examines how children learn science and how teachers facilitate that learning. The course will be based on a framework where students use evidence to construct explanations and engage in argumentation. The course will be set in real life settings (both inside and outside the classroom/lab) and students will become actively involved in the following: participating in and developing inquiry based laboratory investigations, teaching an inquiry based unit to elementary students, assessing student understanding, and initiating self/group reflections of implementation efforts. Health issues and physical education strategies related to elementary students will also be addressed. Observation and field experience are required.
