Exploring the Popperian Framework in a Pre-Service Teacher Education Program
Chitpin, Stephanie; Simon, Marielle
Teaching Education, v17 n4 p355-369 Dec 2006
The study reported in this article is derived from a critical analysis of the work of 28 pre-service teachers enrolled in the course "Teaching elementary language arts" in a Bachelor of Education concurrent program in a southern State university. The pre-service teachers were taught how to use an innovative knowledge-building framework based on the ideas of the philosopher of science, Karl Popper. Two samples of pre-service teachers' writing were analyzed to provide evidence of whether they support the occurrence of growth and development of professional knowledge. This study provides some indication of Popper's framework potential as an effective critical analysis framework for achieving this goal. (Contains 1 figure and 2 tables.)
