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…

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…

DeSimone, Janet; Parmar, Rene S. – School Science and Mathematics, 2006

The purpose of this qualitative study was to investigate typical middle school general education mathematics teachers' beliefs and knowledge of students with learning disabilities and inclusive instruction and to gain an understanding of the process of inclusion as it is implemented in middle school classrooms. In-depth interviews, surveys, and…

Good, Ronald G. – School Science and Mathematics, 1974

Reports the results of a survey sent to State department of Education Science Consultants to determine if they were receptive to the concept of science-mathematics specialists in elementary schools. Thirty-five respondents indicated that such specialists are desirable for grades 4-6 and would be employed by school systems. (JR)

Johnson, Carl S.; Byars, Jackson A. – School Science and Mathematics, 1978

Results of a study concerning the preservice education of junior and senior high school teachers indicate that, in the institutions surveyed, the area of applications is given the least recognition in mathematics requirements. (MN)

Bybee, Rodger W. – School Science and Mathematics, 1978

Reports that 172 science educators ranked: a) adequate personal relations with students; b) enthusiasm in working with students; c) adequate teaching methods; and d) knowledge of subject matter as the four most important attributes of an ideal science teacher. Compares these findings with the 1968 Research on Science Education Survey (ROSES) in…

Trent, John H. – School Science and Mathematics, 1978

Over 500 preservice and inservice elementary and secondary teachers were surveyed to assess the need for metric education in Nevada. A questionnaire was used to determine interest in the topic. Another instrument measured cognitive knowledge of metrics. Results indicated that teachers knew little but were interested in metric education. (CP)

Chipley, Donald R.; Trueblood, Cecil R. – School Science and Mathematics, 1976

The purpose of the study reported in this article was to determine what assistance elementary educators could derive from certain educational journals and state departments of education to meet the challenge of metric conversion. Survey findings showed that elementary educators can expect a limited amount of help from both sources. (DT)

De Vito, Alfred; Krockover, Gerald H. – School Science and Mathematics, 1974

Advocates that two methods courses should be developed for each subject area in elementary education so that prospective teachers can specialize in either the primary (K-3) or intermediate grades (4-6). In particular, suggested differences in science methods courses at these two levels are discussed. (JR)

Trent, John H. – School Science and Mathematics, 1987

A survey was sent to state departments of education and colleges of education to ascertain perceptions on the adequacy of the preparation of junior high school mathematics teachers, recommendations for inservice programs, and the existence of a shortage of well-trained teachers. Results from each group are summarized separately. (MNS)
