MA Early Childhood Education
Course Description

Teaching Children Mathematics and Science I

This course is designed to familiarize students with pedagogy and content knowledge required for the teaching of math and science in elementary schools with diverse learners. An interdisciplinary approach will be taken that incorporates both math and science teaching and learning with a focus on how these subjects inform and build on one another. We will engage with relevant recent research, current standards, and state frameworks in order to understand our role as elementary math and science educators. We will also work to explore both the place of math and science in the elementary school.
