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…

Cian, Heidi; Dsouza, Nikeetha; Lyons, Renee; Cook, Michelle – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
As preservice teachers (PSTs) acquire experiences in their field, they confront difficulties implementing what they learned during their teacher education programs. The successful or unsuccessful outcomes of the challenges they face influence the development of their identity as teachers. One practice that many PSTs are encouraged to implement…

Clary, Renee M.; Dunne, James A.; Elder, Anastasia D.; Saebo, Svein; Beard, Debbie J.; Wax, Charles L.; Winter, Joshua; Tucker, Deborah L. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
The Teacher Academy in the Natural Sciences (TANS) provided middle school (U.S. Grades 6-8) teachers (N = 81) with intensive professional development in chemistry, geosciences, and physics through 13 days of face-to-face instruction that was extended with 2 online science modules per discipline. Because we administered online module assessments…

Hernandez, Cecilia; Shroyer, M. Gail – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
Teacher preparation is a complex process; also complex are the standards that define what novice teachers need to know and be able to do to effectively meet the needs of all of their students. Add the demographic shift in the student population, and there are additional demands on teachers to provide students with the education they need and…

Leckie, Alisa; Wall, Amanda – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
An increasing focus on academic language across content areas, including science, prompted this study of the ways in which preservice teachers integrate academic language in middle grades science. Academic language is part of the discourse that students need for success in school, and it includes both what words are used and how those words are…
