Feldman, Allan; O¨zalp, Dilek – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
National and international standards documents are calling for science teachers to teach their students how to engage in the practices of science. Previous studies have found that most science teachers do not have the knowledge and skill to do this because they have not had experience engaging authentically in science. One way to overcome this…

Seung, Elsun; Park, Soonhye; Lee, Myung-Ah – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
The purpose of this research is to examine the effect of a summer camp-based science methods course on elementary pre-service teachers' self-efficacy in teaching science as inquiry. The science camp was offered to K-6 students as part of the 4-week, 3-credit science teaching methods course over the summer. The pre-service teachers were asked to…

Ogodo, Justina A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Many high school classrooms in the United States have physics teachers who are teaching the subject outside their certified content areas because of a severe shortage of physics teachers. There is a critical need to improve the knowledge base of these out-of-field teachers. This comparative case study examined the instructional practice of…

Nugent, Gwen; Kunz, Gina; Houston, James; Wu, ChaoRong; Patwardhan, Irina; Lee, SoonChun; DeChenne-Peters, Sue Ellen; Luo, LinLin – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
This study investigated the impact of a summer institute with follow-up coaching (treatment) versus no professional development (control) on middle and high school teacher and student science practice outcomes. Treatment teachers participated in a 2-week summer institute that used evidence-based professional development practices followed by…

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…

Lee, Soon Chun; Nugent, Gwen; Kunz, Gina M.; Houston, James; DeChenne-Peters, SueEllen – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
One major implication of the Next Generation Science Standards is the need to integrate inquiry and practice and incorporate engineering into science education. To support teachers' change efforts in a time of heightened science, technology, engineering, and mathematics standards for all students, effective professional development (PD) is…

DeCoito, Isha; Myszkal, Philip – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
In this rapidly changing and technologically evolving world there is a need for skilled labor and professionals in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). This warrants concern, as the number of individuals graduating from and/or pursuing careers in STEM fields is seriously lagging. Students must be inspired, be…

Nehmeh, Ghada; Kelly, Angela M. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
High school physics teachers in the United States are often in a position of isolation, particularly in urban schools where access to physics is relatively limited. This study explored the issue of professional isolation and how it impacted 2 novice urban physics teachers. The a priori framework incorporated aspects of socialization and the…

d'Alessio, Matthew A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
What teachers believe about their own effectiveness in the classroom influences what and how they teach, so teacher preparation programs should work to cultivate strong self-efficacy beliefs (SEBs) in future teachers. I designed a science content course for future elementary teachers around the simultaneous goals of teaching science content and…

Muwonge, Charles Magoba; Schiefele, Ulrich; Ssenyonga, Joseph; Kibedi, Henry – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
Grounded in the expectancy-value and hope theories, the present study was conducted to examine the extent to which self-efficacy, task value, and academic hope predict persistence among science teacher-trainees in Uganda. The sample consisted of 278 undergraduate science teacher-trainees selected from a large public university in northern Uganda.…

Menon, Deepika; Sadler, Troy D. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2016
Self-efficacy beliefs that relate to teachers' motivation and performance have been an important area of concern for preservice teacher education. Research suggests high-quality science coursework has the potential to shape preservice teachers' science self-efficacy beliefs. However, there are few studies examining the relationship between science…
