Addressing Equity within Science Education Courses: Sharing Approaches and Ideas.
Wieseman, Katherine C.; Bryan, Lynn; Hammrich, Penny; Lynch, Sharon; McGinnis, Randy; Pyle, Eric
A discussion session provided opportunities for individuals involved in science teacher education to exchange approaches and ideas on how equity issues in science teaching and learning are being addressed in science teacher education courses. Evaluative questions included: (1) What conceptions of equity in science education underpin individual approaches? (2) What approaches are being used to address issues of equity in science education? (3) What issues and challenges are being confronted in teaching related to these issues? and (4) How are these issues and challenges being resolved? Appendices include two descriptive research papers presented during the session: (1) "Equity from a 'Holistic' Perspective Based on Student-Generated Artifacts" (Katherine C. Wieseman); and (2)"From Parallel Universes: Building Equitable Classroom Environments from the Ground up through Science and Special Educators' Collaboration" (Eric J. Pyle). (Contains 31 references.) (CCM)
