Brown, Julie C.; Crippen, Kent J. – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
This study represents a first iteration in the design process of the Growing Awareness Inventory (GAIn), a structured observation protocol for building the awareness of preservice teachers (PSTs) for resources in mathematics and science classrooms that can be used for culturally responsive pedagogy (CRP). The GAIn is designed to develop awareness…

Burton, Erin Peters; Burton, Stephen – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
Professional scientists who pursue a teaching credential bring a great deal of background to students in a classroom, but they may have barriers to the ways they portray the field of science. This study used a multiple-case replication design to determine the role of epistemology in lesson plans of seven scientists becoming teachers. Data sources…

Haag, Susan; Megowan, Colleen – School Science and Mathematics, 2015
Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) science and engineering practices are ways of eliciting the reasoning and applying foundational ideas in science. As research has revealed barriers to states and schools adopting the NGSS, this mixed-methods study attempts to identify characteristics of professional development (PD) that will support NGSS…

Barnes, Caitlin; Angle, Julie; Montgomery, Diane – School Science and Mathematics, 2015
Creating scientifically literate students is a common goal among educational stakeholders. An understanding of nature of science is an important component of scientific literacy in K-12 science education. Q methodology was used to investigate the opinions of preservice and in-service teachers on how they intend to teach or currently teach science.…

Wasserman, Nicholas H.; Rossi, Dara – School Science and Mathematics, 2015
The recent trend to unite mathematically related disciplines (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) under the broader umbrella of STEM education has advantages. In this new educational context of integration, however, STEM teachers need to be able to distinguish between sufficient proof and reasoning across different disciplines,…

Timmerman, Maria A. – School Science and Mathematics, 2014
If teachers make few connections among multiple representations of division, supporting students in using representations to develop operation sense demanded by national standards will not occur. Studies have investigated how prospective and practicing teachers use representations to develop knowledge of fraction division. However, few studies…

Saylor, Laura Lackner; Johnson, Carla C. – School Science and Mathematics, 2014
Meaningful and effective training and professional development programs for teachers are key to the improvement of teaching practices in our schools. In this paper, the authors offer a meta-synthesis of the literature on the role of reflection for mathematics and science teachers within the context of professional development. The authors frame…

Burton, Erin Peters; Frazier, Wendy Michelle – School Science and Mathematics, 2012
The purpose of this study is to gain insight into the experiences that nationally award-winning, exemplary science teachers have had over their career and examine the alignment of their responses with calls for K-12 science education reform from a selection of prominent commissioned government reports since 1980. From an assessment of the…

McCollough, Cherie; Ramirez, Olga – School Science and Mathematics, 2012
Preservice teachers (PSTs) participated in Family Science Learning Events (FSLEs) at a university designated as a Hispanic Serving Institution. PSTs were required by the instructor to conceive and design culturally relevant science activities as well as implement these activities with K-8 students and their families during three separate FSLEs…

Huang, Rongjin; Li, Yeping – School Science and Mathematics, 2012
In this study, we examined 10 expert and 10 novice teachers' noticing of classroom events in China. It was found that both expert and novice teachers, who were selected from two cities in China, highly attended to developing students' mathematics knowledge coherently and developing students' mathematical thinking and ability; they also paid…

Eberle, Francis – School Science and Mathematics, 2008
This article is about an investigation of six middle school science teachers' beliefs and instructional practice about the coherence of the science they teach as articulated by National Science Education Standards (NRC, 1996). Many well intentioned reform efforts focus on improving content knowledge of teachers, but many classroom teachers…

Chavez, Alma Fabiola Rangel – School Science and Mathematics, 2007
Due to the recent advances in video technology, an increased incorporation of videos and multimedia materials is used in teacher education, commonly for demonstration of good practices or as a reflection tool for teacher professional development. However, video cases can never fully replicate the complexity of working in a real classroom. Watching…

Barlow, Angela T.; Cates, Janie M. – School Science and Mathematics, 2006
This study investigated the impact of incorporating problem posing in elementary classrooms on the beliefs held by elementary teachers about mathematics and mathematics teaching. Teachers participated in a year-long staff development project aimed at facilitating the incorporation of problem posing into their classrooms. Beliefs were examined via…

Zientek, Linda Reichwein – School Science and Mathematics, 2006
Alternative teacher certification (ATC) programs offer one method to help alleviate teacher shortages. While much debate has arisen over ATC programs, very few have empirically examined their impact on the teaching pool. The present study was designed to explore differences by certification type and program characteristics based on novice…
