This course focuses on Science, Technology, and Society (STS) and related practices. STS is both a framework for knowledge and a course or program of studies. This course explores the necessity of STS for children and youth and challenges teacher candidates to create curriculum that addresses contemporary STS problems. STS is interdisciplinary and addresses knowledge and problems that span science education, technology education, and social studies. In addition to curriculum for STS, the course facilitates the development of inquiry-based reasoning and depth of knowledge in select STS issues and topics (e.g., Covid-19, critique of technology, environment).
