This course will help you develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement student-centered science instruction. First, we will explore why we teach science to all students and how our science education experiences impact our view of what good science teaching is. Next, we will examine multiple views on how students come to understand science, the teaching strategies research has identified as most effective and how these strategies can be implemented within the contexts of current high school classrooms. In addition to learning how to teach biology to a diverse group of students, we will reconstruct our knowledge of biology to make it more contextual and conceptual. Finally, we will explore what it is like to be a science teacher and what type of science teacher each of you would like to be.
