University of Wisconsin, Eau Claire: Introductory Earth Science part of Teacher Preparation:Resource Collections:Courses
Earth Science (GEOL 106) is an introductory science course offered by the Geology department at UW-Eau Claire, with enrollment limited to Elementary Education majors. Earth Science is a field and lab based course that focuses predominantly on geology and also covers some oceanography, meteorology, and planetary geology. The course content is science-focused and does not include formal pedagogy content, which is covered in a subsequent Science Teaching Methods course. Although pedagogy is not directly covered in this science course, the instructor endeavors to "raise to the students' consciousness about the variety of teaching methods being modeled". This helps students to understand how they may address Earth Science content in their future classrooms.
