Educational Sciences

Our faculty members are leading physicians and researchers who are passionate teachers, committed to mentoring and guiding students through every step of their training. Each of the views of science articulated above highlights particular modes of thought that are essential to that view. These views are not mutually exclusive descriptions of science, but rather each stresses particular aspects. Since students need to progress in all aspects, it is useful for teachers to have a clear understanding of each of these components of scientific development, just as they need a clear understanding of the subject matter, the specific science content, that they are teaching. It is also useful at times to focus instruction on development of specific skills, in balance with a focus on the learning of specific facts or the understanding of a particular conceptual framework.

The use of instructional technology in K−12 classrooms has grown, and the number of schools with adequate bandwidth for accessing the Internet has increased. The schools in the listing below are not free and may include sponsored content but are popular choices among our users. Tuition and costs will vary across programs and locations. Be sure to always request tuition information before starting a program.

The highlight of the course is definitely the teaching placement in which you are immersed completely in a school environment. During these placements, I developed great confidence in my teaching ability. The experience helps you to discover the kind of teacher you are and learn more about yourself as a person.

The gap in average mathematics scores between white and black students was 6 points at the beginning of kindergarten and 13 points in the spring of third grade; the science score gap was 5 points at the beginning of first grade and 9 points by the spring of third grade. The major in Computer Science enables a student to develop an understanding of the theory and practice of computing within the context of a liberal arts and sciences education. In addition to computer programming, majors in computer science study computer languages, logic, data structures, and applications of computing.
