Portland State University: Special Secondary Methods of Math and Science part of Teacher Preparation:Resource Collections:Courses
This methods course is designed to give students with a scientific or mathematical background preparation delivery of such content in a classroom format. The pre-service teachers develop instructional skills designed to give their own future students the ability to work from a scientific point of view. These skills are drawn from educational psychology, classroom experience, intuition, creative efforts and content specific experiences in a supportive, collegial environment. Development of sound pedagogical practice for math and science teachers and assessment of the abilities and needs of students of science form the core activities in this course. While some content elements may be new to individual students, learning content is not the primary focus of this course. For Dr. Narode's reflections on the course and its design, see Special Secondary Methods of Math & Science: Role in the Program.
