EDUC 3772 Methods of Teaching Early Childhood Science

2 credits
This course is designed to provide an overview of methods, materials, and current research relating to the teaching of science in the early childhood classroom rather than teaching the skills and knowledge bases for science. The purpose is to enable the teacher candidate to effectively teach science concepts in the grades K-3. Emphasis will be placed on student-centered approaches to science including discovery, inquiry, and experimentation. Current theories and standards for using science-process skills and various technologies in early childhood classrooms are explored. Cooperative groups will research and develop thematic units based on S.C. Standards for Science. Materials for the thematic unit will address pupil needs across the curriculum. Required of all early childhood education teacher candidates. (Spring) Prerequisite: Acceptance into Lock 1, GPA 2.75.
