By using national (Science for All Americans, Benchmarks for Science Literacy, National Science Education Standards, etc.) and state (Learning Standards for Mathematics, Science, & Technology, etc.) documents, articles published in the educational literature concerning research about science curricula, electronic media, the Internet, and classroom presentations, students will actively develop and incorporate science curricula for use at the local level. Aspects of teaching, learning, and assessing will be presented within the course work. One focus will be methods and suggestions for organizing science curricula and integrating school and public science education programs. A major objective of LAI 531 is to enable science educators to be prepared to play a vital role in improving science curriculum innovation, implementation, and evolution in their own particular situation. Technology will be utilized in appropriate manners, and electronic curricular resources will be evaluated regarding reliability and validity.
