Synopsis

This is the first course in a suite of two compulsory courses supporting the teaching and learning of primary science. Pre-service educators will learn about the nature of science and the organisation and structure of the Australian Curriculum: Science. They will develop an understanding of the content and pedagogical content knowledge required to teach all four Science Understanding sub-strands from the curriculum across Years F-3. Pre-service educators will apply this understanding in the development and implementation of science lesson plans. This course allows pre-service educators to experience collaborative learning and to consider the integration of literacy and numeracy with science.
