This core text for K-8 science methods courses helps novice teachers become confident and competent in inquiry-centered, standards-based classrooms. Science content and pedagogy are blended using a carefully crafted developmental approach in which teachers begin by learning basic ideas and practicing simple instructional strategies. Once these are mastered, teachers move on to learn and teach advanced concepts and complex experiments. Students learn how to deliver inquiry-based instruction, create standards-based lesson plans, link instruction and assessment, design performance assessments, use a variety of teaching strategies, and integrate science across the curriculum.How much time should it take to write a lesson plan for a 45-minute lesson? 5. Create a lesson plan for an elementary science lesson using the lesson plan format suggested in this chapter or an alternative format suggested by your instructor.
