Günther, Sarah Lena; Fleige, Jennifer; zu Belzen, Annette Upmeier; Krüger, Dirk – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) and content knowledge (CK) are important dimensions of teachers' professional knowledge that are addressed in education programs for science teachers. In this article we present the structure, content, and evaluation of a preservice biology teachers' training program (N=173) to develop an elaborate understanding…

Wang, Jianlan; Sneed, Stacey – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Inquiry, central in science education reforms for decades, is a critical element required in many teacher education programs. However, the instruction of inquiry-oriented pedagogies in those programs has limited impacts on science preservice teachers (PSTs) who arefvn the agent of transforming classroom instruction.

Lederman, Norman G.; Lederman, Judith S. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
This study provides an example of a systematic professional development project designed to build capacity for the teaching of nature of science and scientific inquiry, while not sacrificing the learning of more traditional science subject matter. Specifically, this project examined the impact of a 5-year professional development project on K-12…
