Transcript: Education & Training Colleges like Princeton and Stanford have some of the best science majors. Another way of getting training is being a teacher's aid, peferrably a teacher who teaches the same subject you're interested in. You could also join the STEM program or Governor's School. A Bachelor's degree is the minimum to work in most school systems. People who wish to become a science teacher should get a degree in the subject they want to teach. Although some science teachers who teach at a secondary level(middle/high school) have a Bachelor's degree, taking additional classes is an option for them to recieve teacher certification. And if they wanted to teach post-secondary, they would need a Master's degree or Ph.D. Science teachers have more tasks than most teachers. And that's only because science class requires a lot of safety equipment along with many rules that students need to follow for their own safety. Science teachers are the ones who teach everything related to science. Such as biology, chemistry, physics, ecology, etc. Here's a few of those tasks/responsibilities they may have: Teaching ability and age appropriate material. Preparing hands-on activities. Giving homework, including reading and projects. Evaluate student knowledge with tests and lab activities. Stay on top of the latest technology and scientific discoveries. Help and prepare students for science fairs or competitions. Science teachers educate the future generations of marine biologists, chemical engineers, scientists, etc. They inspire young innovators and teach them to explore what's around them. Definition & Description Science Teachers Renee Walton Tasks & Responsibilities Elementary: 4-6 years Middle: 4-6 years High: 4-6 years College: 5-10 years Work conditions also play a critical role in determining the supply of qualified teachers and in influencing their decisions about remaining in the profession. Research shows that safe environments, strong administrative leadership, collegial cooperation, high parental involvment, and sufficient learning resources can improve teacher effectiveness, enhance their commitment to school, and promote their job satisfaction. Work & Conditions A position in the STEM program is the highest job level in the science field. It requires Opportunities for Advancement

Transcript: Science Earth Science In science we learn how to identify the causes and effects of weather-related phenomena's. PHYSICAL SCIENCE We learn how Newton’s three laws of motion apply to real world situations. Life Science We need to learn the hierarchical relationships of cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems Life Science We learn how two or more organs work together to perform a function.. Science for Teachers Final Exam Project Life Science In life science we learn to Identify human body systems We need to know when dangerous weather is approaching where we live so we can find a safe place to wait out the storm. If you farm you need to know how to predict the weather in order to know when to plant and grow your crops. If you are planning an outdoor event you have to know what the weather conditions for that day are so you can dress and prepare accordingly. This knowledge is important to the existence of all organisms. We have to know how things reproduce to save species from extinction. MR. Hanson's We learn how to mix different liquids, gases, and solids. We learn how to make things that we use every day of our life. We learn how to make Common solution products like: soaps, glues, paints, medicines, tea, etc… We need to know characteristics of Thunderstorms, tornadoes/ hurricanes/cyclones/ typhoons, Droughts, and acid precipitation. The better we understand these types of weather-related phenomena's the easier it will be to prevent the ones that can be prevented. Understanding these phenomena's help us to prepare safety shelters, to have evacuation plans. and relief strategies to protect people from the disasters these weather conditions can cause. photo credit Nasa / Goddard Space Flight Center / Reto Stöckli Understanding what's in the body and how it works is the basis of all medicine. We learn how the body works, how it is made up and how it can go wrong. We learn how to provide treatment that our bodies sometimes need to feel better, To understand the planet we live on. To improve our health, medicines, and environments. To understand the weather, space, plants, animals, and the human body. To improve on our technology, to create devices that make life easier. http://www.artistdirect.com/video/the-eruption-of-mount-st-helens/62563 We need to know these three laws apply to every object imaginable. We need to know that it takes force to move or stop the movement of every single object. Studying science gives us the understanding on how to create force with levers, pulley’s, and machines, to move and stop objects that are beyond human strength. Why we should learn science So that we do not completely drain a single source of energy. We learn that Using more than one resource helps to reserve the non- renewable resources. to help us identify the renewable and non-renewable resources. To help us understand what is the best resource to use to create energy. We learn to identify when the body or a part of it breaks down. You have to be familiar with your bodies systems to know when you are having: trouble breathing that this is due to a problem in your respiratory system, trouble eating your digestive system, if you had high blood pressure that this is a problem in your circulatory system. Learning about science helps us to understand what are some environmentally safe alternatives to producing energy other than the use of fossil fuel. Renewable Energy Because of the study of science. We know these alternatives are renewable and are safer for our environment. Learning Science is important Science Life Science We learn science to distinguish between sperm cells and egg cells. Earth Science We learn how to Predict weather conditions using data. We need to know what are the positive and negative effects of solar energy on the earth, on the different environments, and the atmosphere. We need to know if solar energy reflected from the earth’s surface causes any unsafe radiation in the atmosphere. Understanding the effects humans have on the atmosphere, may teach us how to slow down or stop global warming. We may learn how to prevent some of the dangerous weather conditions that happen on our planet. We may even learn how to protect the atmosphere that causes these storms, so that fewer dangerous storms happen. Seventh Grade Physical Science We need to learn how to Identify natural resources used to supply energy needs. Earth Science Students need to study science so they can Identify and explain the effects that human activities have on weather and the atmosphere. Earth Science Its important to know the effects of solar energy on the atmosphere. For Teachers William Turner To find out more things about our world and the things that live in it. We learn that everything is connected in life. To get a better understanding of the structures of all living things. Everything relates to science. Studying science is how we know about our world. Science explains how things evolved and how they work. Understanding

Transcript: Do all ELLs have the same 1st language? Are they at the same level? These students pose a unique challenge to make sure they are able to learn science while they are still learning English. As anyone who has traveled to a foreign country with a very rudimentary vocabulary and a map can tell you, it is not easy to navigate when you do not understand the native language of a country. You rely on pictures, gestures and the few words you know. I have always been lucky enough to run into people who were willing to help, occasionally even taking me by the hand to make sure I got headed in the right direction. I can only imagine how difficult it would be to learn difficult scientific concepts without a good understanding of the language. By being creative and using a number of modalities and illustrations to help the ELL student understand, you will also be helping many of the native English speakers get a better handle on the material and you will keep the classes interesting. With a little bit of patience and luck, you and your students should arrive together at your destination of scientific knowledge. Along the way, they may also improve their English skills, interpersonal skills and self image. Hopefully, at the end of the year they will say "Thank you, thank you!" and be as grateful to you as I am to all the strangers who took the time to help me the many times when I was lost. Similar to Innatism Uses a variety of Input Models Correct Grammar Focuses on Output as well as Input Bridging Starting Can draw on simple and routine experiences to communicate using high-frequency and general academic vocabulary. Can use phrases or short sentences in oral or written form, often with errors that impede communication Behaviorism Academic Studies have shown that adults actually retain more, but the younger the child, the less complex the language they need in order to catch up to their peers. Also, children may be less inhibited than teens or adults and more willing to risk making a mistake, making it easier for them to become fluent. And one more thing... Thank you for your attention! Who are the English Language Learners (ELLs)? How do students learn a second language? Where is the student's language proficiency level? Innatism Developing Conclusion Tabula Rosa (blank slate) Concentrate on the observable Develop good habits Punish and reward Believe 1st Language detrimental Everyday Intercultural Instructional Myths Identify ELLs Emerging Learning 2nd Language - 3 Schools of Thought Vocabulary Grammar & Syntax Scholarly Discourse Children learn second languages quickly and easily The more time students spend in a second language context, the quicker they learn All children learn a second language the same way Can communicate on matters regularly encountered using general and some specialized academic vocabulary. Can use expanded sentences with some errors that impede communication but retain most of its meaning. Social Social/Academic Oral/Written Communicating/Understanding Students have to have some basic foothold in the language to build on. Having context and additional input such as pictures will help if the language skills are in the beginning stages. More complex tasks and those requiring academic language such as writing lab reports may be difficult for beginning English Language Learners even if they understand the scientific concepts. The process can be frustrating for both the student and the teacher, so a lot of patience and a good sense of humor doesn't hurt! Can use language in abstract situations and apply language to new experiences using specialized and some technical terms. Employs a variety of sentence lengths of varying linguistic complexity with minimal errors. Not all children learn in the same way or at the same rate. A child's background, culture, and prior education may have an impact. One child may be very fluent in verbal social interaction, but struggling with the written academic language. Another child may have better understanding of the written word, but struggles to understand oral instructions. Using a variety of input and output methods with the ELL will help assess their true understanding of the course material and help them improve their English skills in the process. English as a second language(ESL) Prewired for Language Focus solely on Input No grammar 1st Language not detrimental Proficiency Levels ESL Info for Science Teachers Types of Language Can communicate basic needs with high-frequency words and memorized chunks of language. Pictorial and non-verbal clues are helpful. Can understand a wide range of longer oral and written text and comprehend implicit meaning. Employs technical academic vocabulary in a variety of sentence lenghts of varying complexity in extended discourse approaching that of English-proficient peers. Expanding Interactive
