Pre-Service Teacher as Researcher: The Value of Inquiry in Learning Science
Hohloch, Janice M.; Grove, Nathaniel; Bretz, Stacey Lowery
Journal of Chemical Education, v84 n9 p1530-1534 Sep 2007
A pre-service science and mathematics teacher participated in an action research project to reform a chemistry course required of elementary and middle childhood pre-service teachers. Activities to emphasize a hands-on approach to learning chemistry and to model teaching science through inquiry for these pre-service teachers are described. The value of a research experience for pre-service teachers, both upon their student teaching and as a classroom teacher, is discussed.
