The Nature of "Exemplary" Science Teachers: Implications for Teacher Education.
Yager, Robert E.; And Others
There is little doubt that the findings of research in science education can be depressing at times. The literature is replete with reports and research findings which highlight problems and shortcomings associated with the teaching and learning of science. In order to provide a refreshing alternative to the majority of research reports which malign science education and highlight its major problems and shortcomings, a series of case studies of exemplary practice in science teaching was initiated in three nations to provide a focus on the successful and positive facets of schooling. It was assumed that much could be learned from case studies of exemplary practice that would stimulate and guide improvements in science education, especially with such an international perspective. This symposium was designed to permit the first comparison and discussion of results in Australia, Israel, and the United States. Included are three papers entitled "Case Studies of Practices Used by Exemplary Science and Mathematics Teachers," (Barry Fraser and David Treagust, Australia); "Research on Exemplary Chemistry Teachers in Israel," (Avi Hofstein, Israel); and "The Practices of Teachers Who Develop Exemplary Science Programs," (Robert E. Yager and Ronald J. Bonnstetter, United States). (CW)
