Teacher education candidates participate in 5E science lab
Brad Rhew led the teacher candidates through a 5E Science Lab that investigated the relationship between force and mass on Oct. 3 during EDU 412.
The EDU 412: Principles of Learning and Teaching II course taught by Assistant Professor Katie Baker welcomed Brad Rhew on Tuesday, Oct. 3.
Rhew is the K-5 science coach for Cook Literacy Model School and was the 2014 NC Outstanding K-8 Educator by the N.C. Science, Mathematics, and Technology Education Center and a 2014 NC Teacher of Excellence. He is currently a Burroughs Wellcome Science and Mathematics Teacher Career Award Recipient.
Rhew guided the teacher candidates through a 5E Science Lab (Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend/Elaborate and Evaluate) that investigated the relationship between force and mass. The lab provided a hands-on experience around student-centered science.
Rhew also shared tips on meaningful vocabulary integration in science. The EDU 412 teacher candidates will directly apply some of the day's components in their upcoming teaching experiences in the field.
