The Iowa-UPSTEP Model for Science Teacher Education.
Lunetta, Vincent N., Ed.
This publication describes a four year, field-based program for the preparation of science teachers. It begins with a paper providing an overview of the current Iowa-UPSTEP model. A follow-up paper elaborates various facets of the model. The model integrates theory with a series of field-based clinical experiences in a four year program, providing intensive involvement with contemporary science curricula and attempts to emphasize human values. The science teacher education program consists of three major parts: the science major, the general education requirements, and the professional sequence. Each is described in detail. The summer program which includes a curriculum workshop is described as are intern teaching activities. An interactive curriculatorium, a science curriculum laboratory, was designed and described to include an itemized listing of laboratory kits by title and associated text and chapter of the specified curriculum. A Self-Instructional Laboratory is described and the primary objectives for its use are listed. A brief list of references is included. (Author/EB)
