Integrating Science Methods with Professional Development
Vick, Matthew
Science and Children, v55 n1 p42-47 Sep 2017
Learning to teach elementary science well is not only a goal for preservice teachers. This article describes a partnership that has led to an on-site science methods course in an elementary school library that blends pedagogical instruction with practical classroom time to the benefit of inservice and preservice teachers. In the course, both sets of teachers engage with the three dimensions of the "Next Generation Science Standards" (NGSS) as well as the concepts of the Nature of Science.
