A Pilot Study: Investigating Selected Factors in the Academic and Professional Preparation of Preservice Secondary Science Teachers.
Lockett, Arnold W.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships between a laboratory-content-oriented secondary science methods course and the development of selected teaching competencies by pre-service secondary science student teachers. A sample of five student teachers were selected for study during their student teaching experience. Several data-gathering devices were used to obtain relevant data from the student teachers and pupils in their classes. It was concluded that the methods course was effective in assisting student teachers to develop desired competencies. (Author/RH)
