Content Knowledge, Beliefs, and Practices: A Comparison among Six Preservice Teachers.
Lubinski, Cheryl A.; And Others
This paper compares the beliefs and practices of six elementary education majors prior to and during their senior year clinical and student teaching experiences. Three of these preservice teachers had the minimum requirement of two mathematics content courses. The other three were mathematics specialists and had at least six additional courses in mathematics. Comparisons are made from data, pre-intervention baseline to post-student teaching, on their teaching practices and on their reported beliefs. Although results from this comparison suggest that the change profiles of these two groups are different, at the end of their student teaching experience these two groups were not significantly different in their teaching practices and in their reported beliefs.
