Experiential Learning for Pre-Service Science and Mathematics Teachers: Applications to Secondary Classrooms.
Gilmer, Penny J., Ed.; Hahn, Lori Livingston, Ed.; Spaid, M. Randall, Ed.
This monograph presents a view of teachers and scientists cooperating in a co-learning experience. The CO-LEARNERS program is based on constructivism and provides opportunities for teachers to experience science process skills. Contents include: (1) "Impact of Scientific Research Experiences: Preservice Teachers' Ideas on How They Think About and Teach Science" (Penny J. Gilmer); (2) "Real Science for Real Science Teachers" (Sandra Davis); (3) "Making Sense of Science" (Rebecca Brockwell); (4) "Teaching Science is Teaching Life" (Lidia Lanns and M. Randall Spaid); (5) "Making Science More Personal" (Leslie Magalis and M. Randall Spaid); (6) "Teaching and Learning Science: A Team Approach" (Gregory Preston and M. Randall Spaid); (7) "Making Connections to Science through the CO-LEARNERS Program" (Lori Livingston Hahn); (8) "Science from a Different Perspective: Through the Eyes of a Mathematics Teacher" (Ron L. Wark); (9) "Science: Not Your Typical Textbook and Lecture-Based Class Anymore" (Christy Tarter); and (10) "Trading Cultures: A Scientist-Teacher Partnership" (Janet A. Macauley). (YDS)
