Physical Science Methods for Elementary Teachers. An Experimental Course. A Model to Improve Preservice Elementary Science Teacher Development. Volume V.
Orlich, Donald C.
A group of scientists and science educators at Washington State University has developed and pilot tested an integrated physical science program designed for preservice elementary school teachers. This document is a comprehensive guide to be provided to students in a physical science teaching methods course. Chapters include: (1) "Science as a Focus" (rationales, teacher as decision maker, trends and progress); (2) "Determining What Will Be Taught" (planning and objectives); (3) "Taxonomics and Teaching Science"; (4) "Questions and Teaching Science"; (5) "Using Science-Related Discussions"; (6) "Using the Real Stuff of Science: Inquiry"; (7) "Classroom Management"; (8) "Simulations and Games in Science Teaching"; (9) "Science Safety"; and (10) "Evaluating Students and Elementary Science Programs." Each chapter concludes with a list of references. An outline of the methods course content is appended. (CW)
