This course, the second in a two course series, is intended to further develop the practical skills needed to develop effective STEM Education teachers in the secondary classroom. Students will build upon the knowledge and experience they gained in SEM 421 by delving deeper into students' content area(s) through field experiences, implementation of a variety of instructional materials, and development of curricula appropriate for teaching STEM Education at the secondary level. Students are encouraged to be creative and reflective in developing, implementing, and evaluating practices associated with teaching STEM concepts and skills. A strong emphasis is placed upon helping students to develop an understanding of the processes of inquiry teaching, the processes of science and mathematics, as well as a deep conceptual understanding of their respective content area(s). This is part II of a two course sequence. This course requires a minimum of 100 hours of observation.
