This course introduces teacher candidates to theories, research, and methodologies for teaching science and technology in the primary and junior grades. While the course focuses on the content and expectations of the Ontario curriculum, its overall purpose is to expose teacher candidates to current topics in science education that are of concern to science teachers nationally and internationally such as: scientific literacy, science for all, scientific inquiry, the nature of science, and teaching science beyond its traditional content. The course will provide teacher candidates with opportunities for planning units, lessons and activities for teaching basic science concepts for a diversity of Grade 1-6 students. (1.5 credits)
