- Have you always been interested in science?
- Do you want to share your expertise with high school students?
Then you need to consider Biology Education as your major.
You will take a number of upper level biology courses, such as
zoology, plant biology, microbiology, genetics and ecology. As you
enhance your scientific knowledge, you'll learn teaching strategies
that work with high school students. As you develop into a quality
science teacher, you'll be confident in teaching high school students
and facilitating their science learning.
What You'll Learn:
- to integrate technology into your classroom.
- classroom management techniques and how best to support your students' learning.
- teaching strategies which meet the needs of diverse students.
- to analyze how your students are meeting curriculum objectives and
how to design activities so your students are successful, not only in
your class, but also in other classrooms and on state tests.
Field Experience & Student Teaching
Spending time with real students in the classroom is vitally
important in the Price School of Education, so you will have a number
of field experience opportunities prior to student teaching. A Price
School of Education faculty member and your high school science mentor
will structure your field experience so that you effectively design
lesson plans and then implement them with high school students. You
will reflect on each lesson and determine what you'll do differently
the next time. By the time you reach your student teaching experience,
you'll be ready and confident!
