On completion of this module, students will be enabled to:
Model effective habits of teaching. This will involve i) developing a sense of what you value in science and science teaching, ii) playing with effective strategies (pedagogy, assessment, etc.) that see you explore and test those values, iii) implementing your own science teacher education plan.
Unpack Junior Cycle Science learning objectives. Student teachers will explicitly develop and model effective habits of teaching through Junior Cycle Science.
The module seeks to support your development of practical skills, lesson planning, pedagogy, and dispositions associated with second-level science teaching

Student diaries aim to promote self-assessment through reflection. The lecturer will provide comments on the diary as they are written. Diaries will be graded against a rubric that will be discussed in class. Students will receive a copy of the feedback sheet and will have the opportunity to speak to the lecturer regarding their assessment. Given the practical nature of this module, feedback will be offered over the entire trimester. An in-the-moment approach will be employed such that students can put into practice advice given.
