A Geometric Model to Teach Nature of Science, Science Practices, and Metacognition
Nyman, Matthew; St. Clair, Tyler
Journal of College Science Teaching, v45 n5 May 2016
Using the science practice model in science classes for preservice teachers addresses three important aspects of science teacher preparation: teaching the nonlinear nature of scientific process, using scientific practices rather than the ambiguous term "inquiry-based," and emphasizing the process of metacognition as an important tool in teaching and learning. In this article the authors provide two examples of how the model can be used with preservice teachers.
