Helping Prospective Teachers Understand Disciplinary Core Ideas and Crosscutting Concepts in an Elementary Education Methods Course

edited by: Jack Rhoton

This chapter, by Norman G. Lederman, Judith S. Lederman, and Selina L. Bartels, reviews the Next Generation Science Standards and then offers examples of elementary science methods teachers can use to apply the NGSS in the classroom. In addition to reframing the knowledge and skills expected of students, these revised standards address the methods through which science is to be taught and must be reflected in teacher preparation programs, including those for primary teachers, who set the groundwork for secondary instruction. Teacher background information, standards, assessments, references, and resources are provided. This book selection also includes the Table of Contents, Foreword, Preface, Acknowledgments, and Index.
