Thompson, Stephen L.; Emmer, Ed – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
This exploratory case study centered on 3 beginning elementary science teachers who experienced variations in practice-based instructional approaches within their elementary teacher development sequence. We define "practice-based instructional approaches" as engaging with teaching approximations that occur in authentic classroom settings…

Wallace, Carolyn S.; Coffey, Debra J. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
The purpose of this study was to investigate the ways in which preservice elementary teacher candidates designed integrated reading and science lessons that evoked the use of similar cognitive skills in both subjects, such as sequencing, predicting, classifying, or noting cause and effect. The authors provided the candidates with a lesson plan…

Bartels, Selina L.; Rupe, Kathryn M.; Lederman, Judith S. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education has become an international focus of science education curricular reforms. However, few K-12 teachers have the background to authentically teach STEM in an integrated way. This is especially true of elementary teachers, who are often less confident or prepared to teach STEM disciplines…

Kang, Emily J. S.; McCarthy, Mary Jean; Donovan, Corinne – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
This paper reports findings from a two-year investigation on the impact of a professional development (PD) program on second grade teachers' science teaching practice, particularly of the Next Generation Science Standards Science and Engineering Practices (NGSS SEPs). The aims of this study were three-fold: 1) identify which SEPs teachers enacted…

Weller, Jacolyn – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
This article presents a case of online publishing in teacher education and explores the status preservice teachers (PSTs) associate with this act. Publishing as a teacher education strategy is investigated to inform the use of tutorial products that provide learning and teaching advantages. Motivated by Education for Sustainability, professional…

Pleasants, Jacob; Olson, Joanne K.; Tank, Kristina M. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Engineering design activities are a common way for teachers to incorporate engineering into their science classrooms, as called for by current science policy documents in the United States. However, little is known about how teachers prioritize different learning objectives during engineering design lessons. Understanding teachers' thinking on…

Alt, Dorit – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
As explicit administrative expectations to use meaningful inquiry-based instructional activities and formative assessment tasks might influence teachers' classroom practices, this study assessed science teachers' use of contemporary educational activities and assessment tasks above and beyond their conceptions of traditional teaching and learning…

Valente, Bianor; Maurício, Paulo; Faria, Cláudia – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
The present study conceptualized, implemented, and evaluated a specific program, the Live Science program. This program integrated 2 distinct but complementary approaches: participants' immersion in real science contexts and the participation of future teachers in seminars intended to share the immersion experience and to reflect on nature of…

Zangori, Laura; Foulk, Jaimie; Sadler, Troy D.; Peel, Amanda – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
Engaging learners in modeling practices can promote substantial science learning, and anchoring science teaching in societal issues can promote student motivation to learn and make learning experiences more meaningful. However, elementary teachers have had few prior experiences with either modeling or socioscientific issues (SSI) and so are…

Hanuscin, Deborah L.; Cisterna, Dante; Lipsitz, Kelsey – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
The Next Generation Science Standards call for changes in not only what is taught in elementary science but also how students engage in the learning experience to develop understanding of core disciplinary ideas. In this study we examined 5th-grade teachers' pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) for 1 particular core idea: the small particle model…

Chen, Jessica L.; Mensah, Felicia Moore – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
Supporting elementary preservice teachers' development of a science teacher identity provides a way to address challenges of low self-efficacy, self-confidence, and pedagogical content knowledge in science. Meaningful teaching experiences in student teaching placements and field-based science methods courses provide opportunities for preservice…

Subramaniam, Karthigeyan; Asim, Sumreen; Lee, Eun Young; Koo, Yilmin – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to explore student teachers' images of science instruction in informal settings and how these images explicate their field trip pedagogy. "Field trips" refers to planned, structured, and adaptable ways of learning science outside the science classroom that are connected to the school science curriculum.…

Mandrikas, Achilleas; Stavrou, Dimitrios; Halkia, Krystallia; Skordoulis, Constantine – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
In this article, we present the results of an implementation of a teaching-learning sequence that offered the opportunity to increase preservice elementary teachers' engagement with authentic activities in meteorology. In particular, we describe the results of a teaching-learning sequence with regard to the representation of winds on weather maps…
