  Description Physics and Everyday Thinking (PET)** and Physical Science and Everyday Thinking (PSET)** are one-semester guided inquiry courses intended for prospective and practicing elementary teachers or students needing a general education science course ( Both courses engage students in activities involving standards-based content, the nature of science, and learning about one's own learning and the learning of younger students. After providing a curricular overview, we will view video snippets of students engaged in various activities within the courses. The snippets will provide opportunities to analyze students' ideas and reasoning and discuss the roles of social interaction, laboratory experiments, computer simulations and the written curricula in promoting student learning. Finally, we will present recent work on a version of the course intended to meet similar goals in a large-enrollment format, called Learning Physical Science (LEPS). *Supported by NSF Grants 0096856 and 0717791. **Published by It's About Time, Herff-Jones Education Division.
