Teacher Scripts in Science Teaching
Monteiro, Rute; Carrillo, Jose; Aguaded, Santiago
Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, v26 n6 p1269-1279 Aug 2010
Awareness of teacher scripts is of crucial importance to reflection on practice, and represents one means of widening the scope of classroom performance. The first part of this work provides a full description of three scripts employed by a novice science teacher within the topic of The "Structure of Flowers", and offers a detailed illustration (including a transcription excerpt, a routine, three scripts and an improvisation) of how these were derived by means of a Modelling Instrument (MI). In the second part, the relationships between beliefs and actions are explored through tree diagrams. Finally, there is a discussion of how entrenched scripts may act as obstacles to professional development. (Contains 11 figures.)
