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…

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.…

Lewis, Nancy S. – School Science and Mathematics, 2006
Evaluation as a particular kind of investigated discipline is distinguished from, for example, traditional empirical research in the social sciences or from literary criticism, criminalistics, or investigative reporting, partly by its extraordinary multidisciplinarity (Scrivens, 1991, p. 141). It is this unique multidisciplinary feature of…

Hines, Ellen; McMahon, Mary T. – School Science and Mathematics, 2005
This paper reports the findings of an investigation of 11 preservice secondary school teachers' interpretations of the development of proportional reasoning strategies used by middle school students. The preservice teachers examined samples of solution strategies generated by middle school students in proportional reasoning situations and prepared…

Seaman, Carol E.; Szydlik, Jennifer Earles; Szydlik, Stephen D.; Beam, John E. – School Science and Mathematics, 2005
This study replicates Collier's (1972) work. It focuses on the beliefs of a large sample of elementary education students at four stages of teacher preparation, about both the nature of and the teaching of mathematics. The instrument measures what Collier termed a "formal-informal" dimension of belief. The data suggest that initially the…
