EEDUC 6134 Science Curriculum Designed for Understanding

This pedagogical course focuses on curriculum redesign. Participants (K-8 educators) use the Teaching for Understanding framework developed at Harvard University to guide thinking critically about how to shape inquiry-based experiences to achieve deeper understanding of important science concepts. This framework stresses the importance of establishing explicit goals of understanding, engaging students in performances of understanding-that is, experiences that require learners to use the concepts they are learning-and ongoing assessment of their understanding.
