This course will introduce you to science teaching by analyzing what science is and how we learn it. You will investigate what science is by doing some of it yourself, understanding major arguments from the philosophy of science, and analyzing the portrayal of science in the classroom. You will also understand research in science education that attempts to make sense of how we learn science and where we do not learn science as it should be. Assembling these ideas for yourself should enable you to understand your own philosophy of science teaching and allow you to better implement teaching strategies and develop science curricula for your classroom in the future.
