Dana, Thomas M.; And Others
Elementary School Journal, v97 n4 p419-32 Mar 1997
Examines key influences on science teaching and teacher education since 1955. Suggests a new paradigm for elementary science teacher education. Presents case for three theoretical constructs that can inform policy and programs in science teacher education: constructivism, reflection, and professional community. Suggests that because of the complexity of learning science concepts and science-specific pedagogy, ongoing professional development is required. (KDFB)
