IL 2430 - TEACHING & LEARNING IN SECONDARY SCIENCE 1

Credits: 3.0

In this course, teacher candidates will draw upon research, policy, and curriculum documents to develop an overview of current issues in science education. The course is organized around three guiding questions: (1) what are some key practices of scientists? (2) what do classrooms in which students engage in key science practices look like? And (3) what do teachers need to know and be able to do in order to support learning in classrooms where students learn science ideas through engagement in science practices?
