School Science Culture: A Case Study of Barriers To Developing Professional Knowledge.
Munby, Hugh; Cunningham, Malcolm; Lock, Cinde
Science Education, v84 n2 p193-211 Mar 2000
Presents a detailed case study of a ninth grade science teacher to explain how school science constrains the development of her professional knowledge. Concludes that the version of experiment and inquiry seemingly prescribed by the institutional science of school is antithetical to the sort of explanatory inquiry the teacher uses when planning and changing her own teaching.
