SCIE130.79 Classroom Link

Fostering Collaboration, Inquiry, and Critical Thinking in Middle School Science

Course Section Description:

Science can engage and encourage students to think critically and logically. In this course, you will learn to integrate technology into the classroom to encourage students to ask questions, collaborate with others, and explore and evaluate data. Discover software and Web activities designed to help your students organize and consolidate their thinking, communicate their ideas clearly, and analyze and evaluate the ideas of others.

Note: This is a facilitated course. Learners submit coursework and participate in asynchronous discussions throughout the course term, and receive graded feedback.

Classroom Link-Access to students recommended. PBS Classroom Link courses ask learners to implement lessons with their class or with a small group of students (options for learners without access to students are available).

For assignments and evaluation details, see the full Syllabus.
