This article presents the results of a survey questionnaire involving 841 third and fourth year students enrolled in a French language Bachelors degree program in Elementary Education at four Quebec universities. The questionnaire dealt with pre-service elementary teachers' representations of the teaching and learning of four school subjects: Mathematics, Language Arts, Science and Technology and Social Sciences. The results show, among other things, that the curricular reform that reconfigures the contribution of the different school subjects is rarely mentioned in the pre-service teachers' discourse on their teaching practice. (Contains 6 tables and 8 notes.)
