  Abstract: After six years teaching high school physics, nine years as a QuarkNet staff member, and four years teaching as a consultant, I am currently teaching a three-credit-hour university course called “Physical Science for Elementary Teachers.” It is the only college-level physics and chemistry course that this group is required to take before entering the elementary school classroom full-time. In the course design and implementation of this lecture and lab course, I have combined research-based backwards design principles, some flipped instructional strategies, standards-based grading measures, and repeated assessment opportunities to enhance student learning. I will present data on my students’ learning outcomes in six major content areas, MOSART pre- and post-test results, and student course evaluation data.
