ELED 434 - Science Methods for Elementary Teachers

Credit Hours: 3
Science Methods is a course designed to prepare elementary teacher candidates to know, understand, and use the fundamental concepts of science–including physical, life and earth and space sciences–as well as concepts in science and technology, science in personal and social perspectives, the history and nature of science, the unifying concepts of science, and the inquiry processes scientists use in discovery of new knowledge to build a base for scientific and technological literacy for all students aligned with the expectations of the College and Career Ready (CCR) Standards. Multiple techniques for the teaching of science will emphasize the process skills and inquiry methodology through “hands-on” experiences.
