2. Pre-Requisites

It is recommended that students, the future teachers, have a basic knowledge of general content in natural and social sciences.

It would also be desirable for the students to have passed the courses: Social Sciences I: Geography and its Didactics and Social Sciences II: History and its Didactics, and The Natural Environment I: Physics, Chemistry and Physics and Chemistry education. To be knowledgeable about General Pedagogy and Didactics is also recommended.

3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

The theoretical-practical contents proposed in this course for the initial training of future teachers in Primary Education are essential to know how to approach the understanding of the environment to the children who make up this educational stage. In this course unit, both content and basic didactic strategies are approached to bring the teaching and learning of experimental and social sciences closer to Primary Education. Students will be prepared to carry out, together with their students, simple investigations on issues of scientific interest, and to reflect these in the classroom and outside it. They will be able to elaborate projects, units, workshops, didactic materials and visits to the environment, in accordance with planning approaches focused on science, which help to achieve the intended objectives. In this course, the formative dimension of the social and experimental sciences is valued thinking about a future teaching application.

According to art. 6 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 13.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    Students must obtain a minimum rating of 4 out of 10 in each final test (Natural and Social Sciences) to compensate between them and pass the course.
    For every mistake of those included in the "List of mistakes to avoid" (see Moodle), the student will miss 0.2 marks in the corresponding activity/test/presentation/exam up to a maximum of 1.6 marks (8 mistakes). If the mistake is repeated, the repetition(s) will be also penalized.

    **If applicable, any modifications or adaptations needed in the teaching guides as a result of a change in the teaching or evaluation model derived from the evolution of the pandemic will be documented in a later addendum

    ***Plagiarism policy: See article 9 of Students Evaluation Rules.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    The students who do not regularly attend class, must contact the teachers at the beginning of the course, do the same works or assignments and meet the same criteria as the rest of the students. They may be examined from these assignements.
    Students must obtain a minimum rating of 4 out of 10 in each part (Natural and Social Sciences) to compensate between them and pass the course. The remaining criteria are the same than for continuous assessment.
    For every mistake of those included in the "List of mistakes to avoid" (see Moodle), the student will miss 0.2 marks in the corresponding activity/test/presentation/exam up to a maximum of 1.6 marks (8 mistakes). If the mistake is repeated, the repetition(s) will be also penalized.

    **If applicable, any modifications or adaptations needed in the teaching guides as a result of a change in the teaching or evaluation model derived from the evolution of the pandemic will be documented in a later addendum

    ***Plagiarism policy: See article 9 of Students Evaluation Rules.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
Same criteria as in the ordinary call and non-continuous evaluation.
Students who have obtained a grade greater than 4 in any of the parts of the course (natural or social sciences) in the ordinary call may not attend that part.

**If applicable, any modifications or adaptations needed in the teaching guides as a result of a change in the teaching or evaluation model derived from the evolution of the pandemic will be documented in a later addendum
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
Same criteria as in the others calls
