We currently teach two courses for pre-service K-8 teachers: both a Physics and an Earth & Space Science course.  Drs. Woodney and Hood are currently working to align those courses with the Next Generation Science Standards that are being adopted in California.  As we redesign the content flow of these courses we are specifically linking content to the new standards: emphasizing patterns, cross-cutting concepts, and engineering practices.  We are also introducing more pedagogy into the courses.

Additionally, we are hoping to begin a Learning Assistant program and are interested in ways we can encourage more of our students to become high school teachers.  Dr. Hood is actively working with our campus Teaching Resource Center to find funding for the Leaning Assistant program and will be piloting an effort to begin with a small group of students acting as LAs in the calculus based physics course in the Winter Quarter.
