Science Education

Dr. Gail Jones shows College of Education students how to work with hands-on materials. Teachers can have a great impact on the social, personal, and intellectual development of individuals. Their influence stems from a love of learning, a talent for awakening students to new modes of thinking, an understanding of the human development process, and professional skills.
