This course will prepare prospective teachers for teaching science at the middle/secondary school level. Developmentally appropriate content, strategies, and methods of instruction will be discussed with emphasis on the implementation in the student teaching placement. In addition to the seminar, this course requires a full time placement in an educational setting appropriate for the intended certification area. Students work toward mastery of attitudes, techniques and professional practices for successful teaching. A college supervisor and a field-based professional provide supervision. This course addresses specific New Hampshire State Standards for certification in the following content areas: Biology, Chemistry, General Science, Earth Science, Physical Science, Physics and Professional Education Standards (NH Standard Ed 610). (Prerequisite: completion of previous coursework in TECP and permission from the TECP director)
