Introduction

We plan an apprenticeship of the Sciences of Nature, Social Sciences and Mathematics in an interdisciplinary way (not only multidisciplinary) from work for projects and various work tools in response to the need for well-trained teachers. All this, with an educational philosophy integrating the human person and from the capacities to promote an active and significant learning, stimulating, and with the best communication and affective relationships. This subject has 18 ECTS credits taught during the first semester of the 3rd year of Degree in Early Childhood Education. The credits are distributed according to their contents of the following subjects: • Learning of the Sciences of the Nature, Social Sciences and Mathematics I- 6 credits (focused in the field of Sciences) • Learning of the Sciences of Nature, Social Sciences and Mathematics II -6 credits (focused in the field of Mathematics) • Learning of the Sciences of the Nature, of the Social Sciences and the Mathematical III- 6 credits centered in the Work for interdisciplinary projects of CCNN, CCSS and Mathematics The Teaching Guide that deals with covers the objectives, competences methodology and evaluation systems of the subject Learning of the Sciences of Nature, from the Social Sciences and of the Mathematical III that worries to integrate in a single educational action All the other subjects that work in parallel with this area.

Evaluation systems and criteria

In blended



The assessment of this course is the result of applying the theoretical field of language and literacy, and the scope of experimental science in educational practice with the development of a working methodology that follows work projects. 

We evaluate personal progress within a cumulative assessment. VERY IMPORTANT: you take into account the consistency between personal and group notes, to certify the achievement of individual skills. 

If you consider that one of the powers has not been achieved, based on the rubrics of the subject it shall be recovered on second call. In this case the test is specific for this competition. 

The subject is blended, practical, participative and cooperative. 

Assessed all individual and group activities, attendance, participation and cooperation. We will assess the powers of language skills, grammar and spelling.

According to the guidelines of the grade and consistent with the cross development of communicative competence CG2, we'll help with correction in spelling and in drafting in evaluation activities. In this regard they will be returned with an NC those works (no evidence) that show excessive misspellings or illegible written. In the event that no appropriate NC, we will penalize with 0.2 points each serious misconduct observed.
