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. The challenges include the…

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.…

Namdar, Bahadir; Kucuk, Mehmet – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to investigate and better understand preservice science teachers' (PSTs') practices when critiquing and revising 5E (engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate) lesson plans. A single instrumental case study approach was used. The study was conducted at a public university in northeastern Turkey. The…

Molander, Bengt-Olov; Hamza, Karim – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
The development of professional identity during a short-track teacher education program is studied. This article presents how individuals with a strong background in natural sciences describe the teacher education in which they participate. Individual interviews were conducted with 6 student teachers with a doctorate in natural sciences and…

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…

Zangori, Laura; Friedrichsen, Patricia J.; Wulff, Eric; Womack, Andrew J. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
We studied how the practices of modeling supported preservice teachers (PSTs) as a reflection tool for knowledge integration in their science methods courses. In this exploratory study, elementary (n = 4) and middle/secondary (n = 7) PSTs drew models of the process of teaching and learning, including what occurred before, during, and after…

Kreuzer, Pia; Dreesmann, Daniel – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
Natural history museums (NHMs) are important out-of-school learning settings for teaching science; therefore, familiarisation with NHMs is crucial for future teachers. This article presents a student teacher training program in the form of an optional module for Master of Education Biology students at a major German university that focuses on NHMs…

Donna, Joel D.; Hick, Sarah R. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
Gaps in elementary teachers' subject matter knowledge influence their teaching and student learning of science. Educative curriculum materials can support teacher subject matter knowledge. We investigated whether preservice teachers in 2 universities (n = 92) had gains in subject matter knowledge if they participated in modeled instruction related…

Larkin, Douglas – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
In an effort to better prepare science teachers to engage in high-leverage practices, this study investigates the choices and rationales of preservice science teachers in planning elicitation strategies and describes how their understandings about the elicitation of students' ideas changed over time. Four cohorts of preservice science teachers…

Keinonen, Tuula; de Jager, Thelma – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
Globalization, in the case of science education, leads not only to an increase in homogeneity but also to an increase in cultural encounters. In this study, researchers from 2 distinct cultures, South Africa and Finland, used a qualitative approach to probe student teachers' perspectives on chemistry education. Participants were 1st-year chemistry…
