Day, Robert; Beeth, Michael E.
This paper introduces a course entitled "Teaching and Learning Life Science" which was developed as a direct response to a call for educational change in science teacher education. This course combines science content with laboratory experiences and pedagogy with inquiry learning. The targeted population includes non-science major students who are interested in becoming K-8 teachers and are enrolled in an introductory biology course. The paper describes the content and format of the course as offered at the Ohio State University. (YDS)
