The program trains science teachers for grades 1 through 6. It grants a graduate degree in teaching (B.Ed) and a teaching certificate in a dual-major format (science for grades 1-6 and Arabic).
The purpose of the program is to prepare the students for educational work with elementary school-age students and to expose them to a wealth of content from the various fields of science (biology, chemistry, physics, life sciences, material sciences, earth and space sciences, and technology) while emphasizing the importance of these fields for their daily lives and that of their future students, on a personal, national and environmental level; and on developing thinking skills, strategies for solving problems, and a perceptual infrastructure that enables handling of information, research, discovery, and problem-solving.
The program was built following the curricula currently employed in elementary schools in the field of science. It prepares the students for educational work in the community and ensures their success, as well as that of their students. The program consists of teacher training studies (including targeted training for teaching in grades 1-2), core and enrichment studies, as well as designated disciplinary studies (Sciences: 26 weekly-hrs., Science Education: 15 weekly-hrs., Arabic Language and Literature: 15 weekly-hrs.).
The science education studies include, among others, the field of science history, philosophy of science, quantitative thinking, and the development of creative thinking, and expose students to principles in science teaching, creative teaching methods, and computerized environments in science teaching. Arabic language and literature studies in the curriculum include the key areas of knowledge in the field, and particular emphasis is given to developing skills for language cultivation, teaching reading and writing, and teaching children’s literature.
