Using Partner Schools to Teach the Show-Me and National Science Education Standards. (Science Education Section).

Roy, P., J. Wagner, and J. Carl. Education Department, Drury University, Springfield, MO 65802. USING PARTNER SCHOOLS TO TEACH THE SHOW-ME AND NATIONAL SCIENCE EDUCATION STANDARDS. A number of Missouri Show-Me Standards, as well as National Science Education Standards, were successfully implemented in collaboration with the middle and high school science teachers. Pre-service teachers at Drury University were actively involved in facilitating activities and providing individual tutoring to students in partner schools. The constructivist model was implemented in teaching the following science concepts: the periodic table, classification, DNA, and the scientific method. Strategies used were: cooperative learning, hands-on inquiry, computer-aided instruction, and lecture. Students in the partner schools demonstrated meaningful understanding through active participation, higher-level questioning, and achievement. A positive classroom climate was observable through students' excitement and motivation to learn, th us creating an atmosphere conducive to learning.
