Course DescriptionStudents need to develop proficiencies to think critically, communicate effectively, and collaborate productively. They also need to master the practices, concepts, and ideas associated with mathematics and science. Successful students must be able to work with large data sets, design experiments, and apply what they're learning to solve real-world problems. Research shows that inquiry-based instruction boosts students' critical thinking skills and promotes the kind of creative problem solving that turns the classroom into an energized learning environment. This course provides real-world lesson plans to illustrate highly effective inquiry-based instruction, as you learn how to engage math and science students at all grade levels, how to meet rigorous standards and expectations through well-aligned classroom experiences, how to develop useful formative assessments and gather critical information during every class, and how to create effective questions that guide students' deep learning and your own professional development.
