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…

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)

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)
