Engaging Students in Physical Science
ED 5650 2 credits, FREE!
June 13 – 17, 2016
Summer 2017 (Dates TBD)
Deadline: May 15, 2016
Cost: Free! (includes room and board.)
The purpose of the course is to increase the content knowledge and pedagogical knowledge of secondary science physics and physical science teachers. Specific content focus will be around forces and motion, energy, and properties of and change matter and the application of these content areas in engineering to prepare teachers for NGSS. These topics are the core of understanding physical phenomena all around us and address the state standards. Instructional focus will be placed on improving skills to delivery inquiry-based science instruction in the classroom. Additionally, emphasis will be placed on learning how to provide students with meaningful, real-world contexts and applications by learning about engineering design processes.
