This is the third course in a sequence of three, after developing and implementing a new teaching unit and learning materials in biology high school; and after collecting data. During the course the students strive to define criteria that are based on science education literature, to evaluate their own students' learning during the implementation of the new teaching unit, in collaboration with their teachers and peers.
Upon successful completion of the course- students should be able to:
- Define evaluation criteria to analyze their students' learning progression during the implementation of the new teaching unit.
2. Analyze their data of student learning progression in light of these criteria.
3. Write an academic report on their project.
Each student will receive individual list of suggested reading according to the subject of their project.
