Toward the Mark of Empowering Policies in Elementary School Science Programs and Teacher Professional Development
Mensah, Felicia Moore
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v5 n4 p977-983 Dec 2010
In this commentary, I discuss how policy initiatives play out in two different contexts for elementary school teachers yet produce very similar outcomes regarding teachers' professional development and school science learning for elementary students. Ironically, the outcomes that we want see in elementary school science learning and professional development are not realized when policies are introduced that distract from practices that were working prior to new reforms.
