|STEM 932 - Poetry and Pattern in the Natural World of Science|
An integrated approach to the study of the laws, patterns, and processes of the natural world. Science is about investigation of nature, asking and seeking answers to the "why" and "how" questions that come naturally to children. This course attempts to reconnect students with that sense of wonder and curiosity by exploring questions and topics that cross the boundaries between traditionally separate science subjects. Science content, based on the MA Curriculum Frameworks, is integrated with pedagogy so students not only learn about science topics but also ways they can include these topics in their own classrooms. Emphasis is also be placed on addressing and correcting common misconceptions. Organizing themes that connect the physical, earth and life sciences in this course will include: our place in the universe, the solar system and earth's seasons, and matter and the building blocks of life.
