Course Description

CEU Course Description

Elementary teachers may be in charge of teaching many subjects. Even if you aren’t specifically a science teacher, you may be tasked with helping invest in your student’s scientific literacy or general science education. While this may not seem like the most relevant subject for many, scientific literacy is an essential part of a modern education. Ensuring that your students are familiar with the scientific process will help them succeed later in life - no matter what field they go into. In this course, we’ll discuss just why teaching science to elementary students is so important, as well as several ways to do so organically in class.

CEU Course Objectives

  1. Break down the reasons why scientific literacy is important to modern children, even if they don’t plan on going into a scientific career - as well as the ways that the scientific process is integral to modern life
  2. Discuss what the latest research says about why children of elementary-school ages are particularly receptive toward learning scientific subjects
  3. Evaluate different methods for teaching science with reference to the ways that elementary school students learn
  4. Brainstorm creative ways to integrate scientific angles into traditionally non-scientific subjects
  5. Identify practical tools for teaching science in class in ways that elementary-school aged children will be most excited to learn
