This book addresses the question: What is being done to educate current and future teachers of science so that they will be successful in promoting meaningful learning of science? The authors of the 15 chapters in this yearbook explore various dimensions of the preparation and enhancement of teachers of science, including practical and philosophical dimensions. The chapters are: (1) "An Elementary Science Program Emphasizing Teacher's Pedagogical Content Knowledge with a Constructivist Epistemological Rubric (Briscoe, Peters, and O'Brien); (2) "Elementary Science Teacher Education and Integrated Curricula" (Jaeger and Lauritzen); (3) "Integrating Knowledge Bases: An Upper-Elementary Teacher Preparation Program Emphasizing the Teaching of Science" (Krajcik, Blumenfield, Starr, Palincsar, Coppola, and Soloway); (4) "How Teachers Translate Learning Theory into Instruction: A Study of Group Problem Solving by Prospective Secondary Science Teachers" (Tippins, Kagan, and Jackson); (5) "Becoming a Reflective Science Teacher: An Exemplary Endeavor by a Preservice Elementary Teacher" (Roychoudhury, Roth, and Ebbing); (6) "Multicultural Infusion: A Culturally Affirming Strategy for Science Teacher Preparation" (Barba and Bowers); (7) "Reflections on the Role of Teacher Education in Science Curriculum Reform" (Barrow and Tobin); (8) "A Model for Inservice Science Teacher Enhancement through Collaboration of Rural Elementary Schools and Universities" (Prather); (9) "Texas' Science Inservice Programs for Elementary Teachers: 'Stepping' and TESIP" (Lewis and Barufaldi); (10) "The Oregon Consortium for Quality Science and Mathematics Education (OCQSME): Five Years of Collaborative Staff Development (Ault and Ault, Jr.); (11) "'Grow in Science' Explorations in Science, Learning, and Teaching" (Brown and Sinclair); (12) "Placing Gender on the Science Teacher's Agenda: A Program for Professional Development" (Parker); (13) "Creating Cultures for Change in Mathematics and Science Teaching" (Davis, Shaw and McCarty); (14) "A Science Inservice Program Designed for Teachers of Hearing-Impaired Children" (Barman and Shedd); and (15) "Scientific Work Experience Programs for Science Teachers: A Focus on Research-Related Internships" (Gottfried, Brown, Markovits, and Changar).
