EDUC 6563 - Science for Middle Level Teachers♦


(3 sem. cr.) The purpose of this course is to enhance the content knowledge of middle level teachers while increasing their understanding of how middle level students best learn science. Education professionals examine national standards and evaluate their own classroom according to these standards. They explore research-based assessment practices, analyze factors of motivation and engagement, consider what they can do to help students develop productive learning habits, and identify rudiments of differentiated instruction. They also have the opportunity to sharpen their awareness of critical issues in the science classroom, such as laboratory safety. Synthesizing course concepts and the fundamentals of education planning, education professionals demonstrate their understanding through the development of a formal science unit of study.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
