Addressing the Complexity of Teaching: Engaging Prospective Elementary Teachers in Integrating Science, Social Justice, and Language Learning
Purpose: This project will develop and study an innovative model for a coordinated program of undergraduate science and education courses that focus on prospective teachers as learners. The purpose will be to develop teachers who learn science in ways they are expected to teach science as articulated in reform documents such as Taking Science to School: Learning and Teaching Sciences in Grades K-8 and the Framework for K12 Science Education (National Research Council, 2007, 2011).
