Cultivating Environmental Connections in Science Teacher Education: Learning through Conversation
Howes, Elaine V.; Jones, Kathleen M.; Rosenthal, Bill
Teachers and Teaching: Theory and Practice, v10 n5 p553-571 2004
The inspiration for this paper was a retreat in which education students and professors spent a weekend at a forest preserve, conducting biodiversity studies. Our writing describes the power of our retreat as a scientific, social and pedagogical learning experience. The three authors present our written reflections individually, prefaced by a description of the retreat setting. We place our reflections in an exploration of conversation in science teacher education as a way to help our students and ourselves connect more deeply and educatively to each other and to other living things.
