Ritchie, Stephen M.; Rigano, Donna L.
International Journal of Science Education, v24 n10 p1079-94 Oct 2002
Reports an account of an experienced science teacher's self-initiated change in praxis within an inquiry community. Uses classroom observations and interviews to evaluate the discursive practices of the teacher and his colleagues. Attributes the teacher's change in praxis to his dissatisfaction with previous practice and the realization that alternatives were likely to provide better outcomes for his students.
