Pre-Service teachers will understand how the vision and guiding principles behind the National Research Council's, Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts and Core Ideas can be implemented to help K-6 students develop a more coherent and usable understanding of science. Pre-service teachers will plan instruction designed to support the integration of the scientific and engineering practices and the disciplinary core ideas of science and engineering (life science, physical science, earth and space science and engineering technology and applications of science) to enable K-6 student to not just understand science content, but to also develop an appreciation of the wide range of approaches used to investigate, model and explain the world. Pre-service teachers will plan instruction to support the purposeful and repeated integration of the crosscutting concepts within and across grade levels to enable K-6 students to understand how various science disciplines overlap and interact.
