ELED 522 - Science & Engineering Practices in the Elementary Classroom

(3 credits)
This course will focus on the science and engineering practices as described in NGSS and their relationship to real-world science and engineering careers. Teachers in this course will learn how to develop lesson and unit plans that attend to multiple science and engineering practices. They will learn how to use the teaching tool called a science notebook to support students’ use and learning of the science and engineering practices through writing and/or drawing. Teachers will learn how to assess when and how their students are engaging in the appropriate science and engineering practices for the task and concepts being taught. Teachers will create posters, make presentations, develop a unit plan, use their own science notebook entries during hands-on investigations, showcase their students’ science notebook work, and develop rubrics for assessment. Offered summer session.
