Guidelines and Competencies for Elementary Science Education: A Course Module.
Cleminson, Ronald W.; And Others
This three-part document contains a set of competencies for elementary science teachers. The objectives state the level of competency expected and suggest how it may be achieved. The first section, "Process-Inquiry Skills," discusses competencies fundamental for elementary teachers and children. The second section, "Instructional Skills," is designed to help teachers develop skills in planning for and teaching elementary school science by the inquiry approach. The third section, "Interest and Research/Curriculum Knowledge," provides the background in science education necessary to support this approach to teaching and to nurture an interest in science. Instructions for completing each competency are contained in a module. Students are responsible for selecting activities or methods included in the modular framework to complete each competency satisfactorily. (Authors/JS)
