The Recent Literature: Implications for the Design of Preservice Programs. Papers on the Education of Science and Mathematics Teachers. No. 1.
This document focuses on implications for the design of preservice education programs for science and mathematics teachers. It is assumed that the goal is to prepare effective teachers, so the literature devoted to teacher effectiveness is first examined. This material is primarily aimed at improvement in Australia, but the concepts and issues discussed are seen as broader-based. The major sections of this text are: (1) A Summary of Initiatives in the Study of Teacher Effectiveness; (2) Teacher Effectiveness in the Sciences; (3) Trends in the Preservice Education of Science Teachers; (4) Teacher Effectiveness in Mathematics; (5) Trends in the Preservice Education of Mathematics Teachers; and (6) Implications for Local Teacher Education Programs in Science and Mathematics. This material concludes with references and an appendix. (MP)
