Powell, Richard R.
Teaching and Teacher Education, v13 n3 p341-56 Apr 1997
This study examined how prior knowledge and experience influenced first-career and second-career beginning science teachers' curriculum and classroom instruction. Observations and interviews indicated that teachers compromised their beliefs about good content and became similar by the end of the year. The classroom curricula of both groups emerged as textbook centered. (SM)
