EDUC 6020 - Science K–6: Instruction and Assessment


(5 cr.)
In this course, education professionals explore teaching and learning in science, based on the latest research on the most effective methods for teaching appropriate science curriculum from kindergarten through Grade 6. Candidates focus on ways to use developmentally appropriate strategies to promote modes of inquiry and analytical skills in science education. They also explore instructional and assessment strategies to develop children’s conceptual understanding of science, particularly relating to the standards for physical, life, and earth and space sciences. Candidates examine and apply integration of science with reading, math, social studies, and technology. Candidates consider their own science content knowledge and explore local professional development opportunities. This course requires a 15-hour field experience at a school approved by Walden University.
