EDUC 551
Credits:
[3.0]
Students investigate the natural environment, at Bank Street and at the Tiorati Workshop for Environmental Learning in Bear Mountain State Park, to focus on the theory and practice of natural science. Students conduct inquiries under the principle that teachers should learn significant science concepts in ways that they are expected to teach. Students investigate materials, science concepts, and teaching strategies that are appropriate for preschool and elementary school learners. Class sessions include field explorations at the Tiorati Workshop.
