Teaching an Integrated Science Curriculum: Linking Teacher Knowledge and Teaching Assignments
Harrell, Pamela Esprivalo
Issues in Teacher Education, v19 n1 p145-165 Spr 2010
A number of factors affect successful implementation of an integrated science curriculum, including various outputs and inputs related to teacher quality such as professional development experiences, adequate planning periods, and adequate content preparation of teachers with regard to content knowledge associated with the curriculum taught. This study examines factors related to teacher quality inputs (coursework, grade point average, and teacher test scores). Specifically, the focus is on teacher knowledge related to eighth grade science in Texas, which uses an interdisciplinary science curriculum consisting of topics in life science, chemistry, physics, and Earth science. (Contains 4 tables and 3 figures.)
