CIEE 3260 Science and Arts Integration

This course will prepare preservice teacher candidates (TCs) to build a conceptual and tactical knowledge base in science (life, physical, earth and space, and engineering content and practices) and the visual and performing arts (music, dance, visual arts and theater) for facilitating learning for elementary students.  TCs will explore the Next Generation Science Standards’ three dimensions in order to plan active inquiry lessons to develop scientific knowledge for all students.  Understanding the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards in the Arts K-6 will allow TCs to explore, engage, explain, and evaluate interdisciplinary pedagogies to be implemented in the classroom. Diverse hands-on methodologies, differentiated teaching strategies and reflective assessments focusing on critical thinking and problem-solving skills will be intrinsic to learning. The science and arts integration course will nurture TCs’ curiosity to enable integrated teaching and learning of the natural and man-made global environment for the inclusive classroom
