Strand A—This strand offers licensure for those interested in teaching middle and high school science in an urban setting. It is designed to provide information to expose Manitoba students to the complexity of issues associated with Lake Winnipeg and, through science investigations and problem-based approaches to learning, to encourage students to develop decision-making skills associated with the ecological and social dynamics of the Lake Winnipeg environment.
It is generally taught as a single subject science until sixth form, then splits into subject-specific A levels ( physics , chemistry and biology ). However, the government has since expressed its desire that those pupils who achieve well at the age of 14 should be offered the opportunity to study the three separate sciences from September 2008.
The National Science Education Standards offer a coherent vision of what it means to be scientifically literate, describing what all students regardless of background or circumstance should understand and be able to do at different grade levels in various science categories.
In order to be licensed in science education through the MEd program, you must complete both the degree and licensure requirements (strand A). The degree requirements are also listed for the specialization in Advanced Studies in Science Education (strand B).
The NASA-Funded Research Results portal was created in response to a 2013 request from the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, which directed science-funding agencies to develop plans to increase access to the results of federally funded research.
