Illman, Thomas H. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 1998
Determines that the philosophical basis for science education is likely to be an interesting field in the 21st century and that there is a need to provide the practicing teacher with some ideas for daily work such as local, national, and international student cooperation; using student lab reports to develop local scientific journals; and having…

Crowther, David T. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 1998
Proposes that preservice elementary education majors encounter five hurdles as they experience their science methods course: (1) reservations and hesitations or the anxiety stage; (2) awareness/enjoyment stage; (3) intrinsic shift; (4) rapid building of self confidence and self efficacy; and (5) empowerment.

Ostlund, Karen – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 1998
The concepts, processes, and methods found in science are used in other disciplines. Many science-class activities are predicated on students' reading and writing skills. Students read textbooks, read directions for conducting experiments, and write their own reports of observation. Integrating science with mathematics usually requires little…

Neathery, M. Faye; Glynn, Justine; Long, Katherine – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 1998
This professional development collaborative involved state agencies, local industry, an outdoor learning center, a university, and teams of teachers from rural schools. The program had three main goals: to introduce inquiry-based approaches to science teaching in the elementary classroom, to utilize field experiences to connect the program to…

Ginsberg, Edward S.; Panasuk, Regina M. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 1998
Use of end-of-chapter textbook problems for teaching and assessing concepts in introductory physics is widespread, as is restriction of student access to the solutions. Surveys student attitudes (n=128) on access to problem solutions, sampling the enrollment in a large calculus-level course. Results confirm a definite preference for freer access…

Price, Besty – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 1998
Investigates whether preservice teachers need more practice to develop strong technology and teaching skills before they go into student teaching. Only after practicing these skills sufficiently did the biology education majors (n=2) feel comfortable and confident to begin a teaching assignment. (Author/MVL)

Luft, Julie A.; Narro, Martha L.; Slaughter, Jeanne M. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 1998
Examines inservice teachers' perceptions (n=8) of two master's programs, one administered by the College of Education, the other a General Biology Program administered by three biological science departments. Determines that each master's program contributes differently to the professional development of secondary science teachers and that neither…
