A Frame for the Development of Preservice Science Teachers
Corrigan, Deborah
Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, v8 n1 Article 8 Jun 2007
This paper describes how a frame has been used to articulate the intentions of a preservice chemistry education course to students of that course. The frame, which draws on appropriate knowledge bases for teachers of science, is also used through the teaching of the course as a diagnostic and development tool to assist the learning of these preservice teachers. However, the success of using such a frame also relies on the use of reflective tools to monitor student learning, such as learning logs and portfolios. The paper also presents evaluations from students on the success of using this frame in this preservice chemistry teacher education course. (Contains 2 tables and 1 figure.)
