Credits: 4.0

In this course, teacher candidates learn how to draw upon learning theory and knowledge of adolescent development to design and support science instruction. Teacher candidates utilize various curricular resources (e.g. Standards, text materials, online modules, etc.) To develop detailed instructional plans for daily lessons and entire units. Emphasis is placed on the selection and/or design of high cognitive demand tasks and appropriate pedagogical scaffolding to support students' engagement in those tasks. Teacher candidates have opportunities to engage in key pedagogical practices while receiving critical feedback from peers and the course instructor.
