What Teachers Want: Supporting Primary School Teachers in Teaching Science
Fitzgerald, Angela; Schneider, Katrin
Teaching Science, v59 n2 p7-10 Jun 2013
Impending change can provide us with the opportunity to rethink and renew the things that we do. The first phase of the Australian Curriculum implementation offers primary school teachers the chance to examine their approaches to science learning and teaching. This paper focuses on the perceptions of three primary school teachers regarding what support is required to foster science teaching in primary classrooms. In acknowledging these voices, implications for science teaching practice and leadership are proposed and positive actions to encourage change are identified.
