An Evaluation of the University of Iowa's Science Teacher Education Program.
Krajcik, Joseph S.; And Others
This study describes the evaluation of a model science teacher education program developed with support from the National Science Foundation from 1970 to 1980. This program, named the Undergraduate Preservice Science Teacher Education Program (UPSTEP) was designed to develop science teachers who have a research-based rationale for teaching science. This study was undertaken to follow up on graduates of UPSTEP as inservice teachers and investigate their attitudes, methodologies, goals, and classroom teaching, and to compare these data to a study of participants in the Iowa Honors Workshop using the 1985 version of the National Survey of Science and Mathematics Education. Results are reported on the status of 104 UPSTEP graduates, including the course objectives, teaching techniques, and the perceptions of their students (for those who held teaching jobs). Details are supplied on 12 tables. (CW)
