Limited Capacity seats available

A good understanding of the nature of science (NOS) is an essential component of scientific literacy. Research has shown that explicit instruction in the nature of science is necessary to help students develop their own understandings of NOS. So what is NOS? And how do teachers structure the learning environment to promote a good understanding of NOS? In this session, the presenters will discuss aspects of NOS that will help teachers understand this important concept. Participants will explore these concepts through innovative and engaging activities that they can immediately use in their own middle and secondary classrooms.
