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.
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!
