Conditions That Promote Teacher Learning for Effective Chemistry Teaching
Lythcott, Jean
Educational Forum, v79 n1 p30-45 2015
This article describes a professional development program that inspired some high school teachers to drastically reshape their teaching of chemistry toward a more learner-centered practice. Through interviews, they identified a freedom to explore and a sense of being trusted and respected as key aspects that supported this new approach. Rather than advocating a single outcome, the expectation is that teachers will refine their practice in ways that are important for their own contexts.
