Progress In Science Education (PriSE)

This programme aims to give students the academic and practical skills they need to develop a critical understanding of the role of science education, research and communication in society. grade levels (5th grade science, 8th grade science, biology, and mathematics grades 5-8 and Algebra I) to join our dynamic program for the 2017-2018 year! Science content will focus on Matter and Energy. Mathematics focus will be on algebraic and proportional reasoning for all grades. The computer science (CS) focus for the UTD TRC (March – July 2017) is on preparing teachers to teach computer science (grades 8-12) and prepare for the certification exam. Other activities may include preparing teachers to offer CS camps or clubs on their campuses.

The ‘Science Fair’ Documentary Makes STEM Entertaining

About this journal. In their introduction, Bodard and Romanello stress our collective responsibility as scholars of the classics to communicate to the wider public the importance of the outcomes of our work. In their view, classicists need to engage students in new and stimulating ways that keep pace with the rapid development of technologies offered by the world outside academia, urging that we must find ways of applying their techniques, even if seemingly distant from our subject, to resolve questions and problems that are still unanswered and unsolved. The book is divided into three main sections: 1) Teaching, 2) Knowledge Exchange, and 3) Public Engagement, each reflecting the editors’ overarching theme of the need for open access to digital resources.

The classic scientific method as taught for many years provides only a very general approximation of the actual working of scientists. The process of theory development and testing is iterative, … Read more

The Future Of Science Education (Science Storms)

About this journal. Ideally, teaching the scientific method to students is teaching them how to think, learn, solve problems and make informed decisions. These skills are integral to every aspect of a student’s education and life, from school to career. With a graduate degree in science education such as the University of Texas at Arlington’s online Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction in Science Education , teachers can use what they learn about science instruction techniques and curriculum design to advance science education and student learning as a whole.

Teacher education can be evaluated and used to improve existing programs. Science should be exciting for young people, giving them skills and opportunities to improve their futures. But not all young people are inspired by science. Some don’t find it relevant to their lives, or know what careers are available. We want to make sure that all young people in … Read more
