Teaching Science Methods Courses with Web-Enhanced Activities.
Bodzin, Alec M.
Learning science in today's classroom does not have to be restricted to text-based curricular resources. Web sites present learners with a wide range of science activities in various formats ranging from text-only information to providing authentic real-time data sets and interactive simulations. This paper discusses reasons for using the Internet and World Wide Web for instructional purposes in a science methods course and also presents several Web-enhanced activities and related course resources available online from Lehigh University concerning inquiry, environmental issues, weather, geology, and data collection. (Contains 21 references.) (MVL)
