Course Description

NC has new science standards that leverage Science and Engineering Practices (SEPs). Modeling is the central practice of the SEPs. This research-based, reform-oriented pedagogy helps correct the many weaknesses of the lecture-demonstration method of instruction found in many classrooms, including the fragmentation of knowledge, student passivity, and the persistence of naive beliefs about the physical world. Scientists learn by doing: they construct and deploy models of the real work and test their ability to predict new phenomena. The student-centered Modeling classroom focuses on turning students into scientists to replicate this process. This program will introduce teachers to the instructional methods of SEPs and Modeling.
