Pre-service methods classes are too often the exclusive domain of university preparation programs. Many of the faculty in these programs have been out of the classroom for many years and do not have a close knowledge of the current school environment and balancing teaching with these needs.
This poster shares initial work in develop a series of methods courses co-constructed with urban STEM teachers that can be taught in a modular fashion drawing on the expertise of both university faculty and classroom teachers.
We are piloting the development of a new instructional plan for university based STEM methods courses.
The poster will outline the potential learning modules for science methods students and how they will be developed and taught by two classroom teachers and a university faculty member.
This can serve as a model for other teacher preparation programs to co-construct and teach preservice methods classes.
