The syllabi that follow present a variety of experiences in science education including courseswork for initial science teacher preparation, advanced graduate level science education and school-district-based seminars. Unless material is identified as copyrighted, users can make use of any of the material presented herein.
Initial Science Teacher Education Course Sequence. Three syllabi are shown here that were used in the TEEMS Science Teacher Education Program at GSU. The program admits students who have a degree in science or engineering, and involves them as a cadre for four terms leading to initial certification (grades 7-12 in science), and a master's degree in science education. The full time program begins in the summer, and continues through the following fall, spring and summer terms.
Master's Level Science Education Course. This syllabus is designed for a science education course at the Master's level focusing on the theory and pedogogy of science teaching. Students enrolled in this course typically are teaching science at either the middle or high school level, and concurrently pursuing a master's degree in science educatiion.
Ph.D. Level Graduate Seminars in Science Education. The two syllabi shown here are designed for doctoral students pursuing a Ph.D. in science education.
