The Effect of the Student Teaching Experience upon Preservice Elementary Teachers' Attitude and Anxiety Involving Science and Science Teaching.
West, Shelly L.; And Others
One very important component of elementary science student achievement is the teacher. This paper describes the effect of student teaching on attitude and anxiety toward science and science teaching among preservice elementary student teachers (n=71). Attitude was measured using the Revised Science Attitude Scale. Anxiety was measured using the State-Trait Anxiety Inventory. After comparing pretest and posttests for these instruments, the conclusion was made that there was a significant improvement in attitude towards science and science teaching as well as a decrease in anxiety about science and science teaching.
