Earth Science Curriculum Design and Teaching Practicum for Elementary School

GEOL 1960G S01 [CRN: 26685]

This course is a practical introduction to Earth Sciences curriculum design and teaching with a strong “learning by teaching” component. Students will learn about the principles and best practices of science education and communication and will teach a theme-driven ten-lesson Earth Science module previously designed by DEEPS students in collaboration with participating teachers from Providence Public Schools in two elementary public schools. After each lesson students will receive feedback and will analyze and discuss their teaching process during class meetings. In the second part of the course students will apply the experience they gained to design a new module outline.
