Online Submission, Mevlana International Journal of Education (MIJE) v4 n3 p139-148 Dec 2014
This study was conducted to explore the science and technology teachers' views on the implementation of 5th grade science course. Open-ended questions were used as a data collection tool. The study sample consisted of 28 science and technology teachers working in Erzurum in 2012-2013 education year. The data gathered were analysed via content analysis method. According to the results obtained from the open-ended questions, a great majority of science and technology teachers who participated in the study stated that they supported science and technology teachers who were teaching this course and therefore students' performance at science courses would enhance more. On the other hand, some science and technology teachers considered the disadvantages which they would encounter while teaching at the 4th grade science course. The reasons for the disadvantages were that they would have difficulties in targeting their instruction to the level of the students and also they would encounter much bigger problems when compared to other upper grades.
