"R-Best" Rationale for Teaching Elementary Science: A Study of First Year Teachers' Perspectives on Their Personal Research-Based Elementary Science Teaching Rationale.
Veronesi, Peter; Lambert, Rebecca
Elementary teachers must make thousands of decisions about their teaching practices every day. From whom should they first seek a response? Who should be asked the next question? Will the students be in groups for this activity or do it alone? While many science educators have clear visions of strategies they should employ in science classrooms, the reality does not always fit their vision. This paper suggests that focus on the nature of science, process skills, and integrated teaching methods will increase the confidence of new teachers. In addition, it will develop an effective strategy that supports new elementary teachers' science instruction. (Contains 19 references.) (CCM)
