The Effects of a Physical Science Course Using the Process Approach in Developing Attitudes and Competencies of Prospective Elementary School Teachers at Cebu Normal College, Cebu City, Philippines.
Sabulao, Lily Kintanar
Relationships which existed between intelligence, process, attitude toward teacher-pupil relationship, and content in physical science were examined, along with differences between IQ levels and treatment groups for outcomes in content, process, and attitude. Ninety prospective elementary teachers were involved in the study. Instruments used were: (1) The Minnesota Teacher Attitude Inventory, (2) Science Process Test for Elementary Teachers, (3) A Content-Understanding Test, and (4) SRA Verbal Intelligence tests. All data obtained were analyzed by the t-test, correlation techniques, and two-way analysis of variance. The 0.05 level of confidence was held for rejection of the hypotheses tested. The design was a longitudinal study without a control group. Most of the activities were taken from the Elementary Science Curriculum Guides 1-6. A peer-group teaching experience was included. A weekly two-hour lecture and four-hour laboratory, as well as a two-hour modular laboratory and two-hour recitation laboratory, were incorporated. Pertinent findings of the study showed: (1) significant improvement in content and process; (2) intelligence and process became significantly correlated; (3) a post hoc comparison revealed a highly significant difference between the high and low IQ groups indicating that the high IQ group had the better chance of improvement in process and content.
