Hacettepe University Journal of Education, v40 p164-175 2011
The purpose of this study is to explore pre-service chemistry teachers' images of science teaching in their future classrooms. Also, association between instructional style, gender, and desire to be a teacher was explored. Sixty six pre-service chemistry teachers from three public universities participated in the data collection for this study. A modified version of Draw a Science Teacher Test Checklist (DASTT-C) was used as a data collection instrument. The results of study showed that pre-service chemistry teachers' perspective of science teaching style is 37.9% student-centered, 22.7% teacher-centered, and 39.4% reflect the characteristics of both student-centered and teacher-centered approaches. A significant association was found between gender and instructional style. Female pre-service teachers are more willing to use student centered approaches rather than male pre-service teachers.
