EDT 4034 - Methods of Teaching Secondary Science


(3)

This methodology course is designed to prepare prospective secondary-level (Grades 7- 12) candidates for successful teaching of life and physical sciences. Topics include the following: pedagogical content knowledge, curriculum selection and design, safe laboratory management and operation, integration of language arts and mathematics in the science curriculum, methods and modalities of science teaching, assessment, classroom application of various forms of technology, and professional organizations. Micro-teaching, classroom observation and group and self-evaluation are included. Instruction is aligned to the state-adopted Science Common Core Standards (7-12) and the Next Generation English Language Development Standards. This course includes intentional practice of classroom management, active and equitable participation for culturally, ethnically, linguistically, and academically diverse learners, lesson planning, and formative assessment to differentiate instruction for all learners. Modifications for diverse learners and learners with exceptionalities are researched. (Equivalent to EDU4034. PLNU students who complete EDU434 are exempt from taking EDU 6024  for their preliminary single subject credential program but need to replace it with three hours of a graduate-level elective for the MAT degree.)
