Preservice and Inservice Science Teachers in Partnership through EarthVision 2000.
This paper explores the interactions between preservice and inservice teachers in a non-school setting as a part of the EarthVision 2000 project. The involvement of inservice teachers in teacher education plays an important role in the knowledge of field experiences. Creating a program for the initial preparation of preservice teachers for effective teaching has been a challenge for educators. With the implementation of EarthVision materials and development--a partnership between preservice and inservice teachers--the goal was to improve the quality of preservice teacher education. This study explores whether the selected seven high school science teachers and one high school mathematics teacher benefited from the early collaboration with inservice teachers.
