Appleton, Ken; Kindt, Ian
International Journal of Science Education, v21 n1 p155-68 Feb 1999
Reports on a pilot investigation into the perceptions of graduate teachers (n=9) of their science teaching during their first 18 months as educators. Emergent themes relate to the teachers' perceived self-confidence in teaching science, and to school influences such as collegial support, resources, and the perceived importance of science in the curriculum. Contains 33 references. (Author/WRM)
