Cat Obermeier Chapter 5: Planning and Managing Inquiry Instruction Planning science lessons Select science content to be learned that is consistent with state or national content standards. Write learning objectives. Develop learning activities that enable students to achieve the objectives. Describe the activity in writing. Plan assessment tasks and procedures. Selecting science content to be taught and learned Developing teacher’s knowledge of science READ!!! Textbooks, teacher guides, books written for children. Use the internet to find science content discussions. Talk to other teachers. Attend classes for teachers. Attend conferences for science teachers. Visit websites for science educators. Write appropriate objectives Instructional objectives are specific intended learning outcomes. The ABC’s of objectives: Audience: identify who will be expected to achieve the objective (learner, student) Behavior: identify the specific type of performance that will be expected of students and what actions they will be expected to achieve the objective. o Remembering: identify, name, define, state. o Doing: distinguish, describe, compare. o Understanding: classify, interpret, explain, apply, demonstrate. Conditions: for instructional objectives specify the “givens” (what the learner will have access to, if anything, in demonstrating the expected performance.) The quality of performance that will be expected of students is sometimes stated within the objective, but often today it is given in the assessment plan for the lesson. Select and design lesson activities In designing lesson activities, teachers determine what specific learning experiences relate to the content, lead to the attainment of specific objectives, and promote interest and understanding.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
