Research and Teaching: Investigating Preservice Teachers' Self-Efficacy through Saturday Science
McLaughlin, David
Journal of College Science Teaching, v45 n1 Sep 2015
This study reports on preservice teachers' reported feelings of confidence with learning and teaching science relative to their participation in a science enrichment program. Through Saturday Science, local families are invited to explore various topics with hands-on activities designed and facilitated by students in an early childhood education program. In addition to the opportunity to enhance their conceptual knowledge and inquiry science skills, Saturday Science provides preservice teachers with experience in an informal education context and the opportunity to interact with parents and other adult caregivers.
