Kim, Eunjeong; Oliver, J. Steve; Kim, Young Ae – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
The goal of this article is to inform professional understanding regarding preservice science teachers' knowledge of engineering and the engineering design process. Originating as a conceptual study of the appropriateness of "knowledge as design" as a framework for conducting science teacher education to support learning related to…

I, Ji-Yeong – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Implementing mathematically challenging tasks is difficult for teachers when working with emergent bilinguals because cognitively demanding tasks in mathematics commonly have high language demand. Currently, inadequate teacher preparation for teaching emergent bilinguals is becoming a significant concern in the United States as this population of…

Carpenter, Stacey L.; Iveland, Ashley; Moon, Sungmin; Hansen, Alexandria K.; Harlow, Danielle B.; Bianchini, Julie A. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
We investigated beginning secondary science teachers' understandings of the science and engineering practice of developing and using models. Our study was situated in a scholarship program that served two groups: undergraduate STEM majors interested in teaching, or potential teachers, and graduate students enrolled in a teacher education program…

Borgerding, Lisa A.; Caniglia, Joanne – School Science and Mathematics, 2017
Previous literature suggests that service learning may offer new opportunities to support the development of preservice science and math teachers, but few studies examine service learning beyond isolated teaching events. In this qualitative study, we attempt to improve upon this literature by following Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) students'…

Burton, Erin Peters; Burton, Stephen – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
Professional scientists who pursue a teaching credential bring a great deal of background to students in a classroom, but they may have barriers to the ways they portray the field of science. This study used a multiple-case replication design to determine the role of epistemology in lesson plans of seven scientists becoming teachers. Data sources…

Sinicrope, Rose; Eppler, Marion; Preston, Ronald V.; Ironsmith, Marsha – School Science and Mathematics, 2015
The goal of this study was to identify variables related to success and resilience in an undergraduate, high school mathematics teacher education program. Over a five-year period, we tracked the academic performance and achievement motivation goals of multiple cohorts of students. Students who successfully completed their degrees had higher grade…

Chen, Rong-Ji – School Science and Mathematics, 2011
While the nature of mathematics and the nature of science have received much attention, there is a lack of research on the nature of technology. This study sought to investigate preservice teachers' perceptions about the nature of technology and its role in mathematics education and society. Based on two philosophical theories of technology, the…

Plummer, Julie Stafford; Peterson, Blake E. – School Science and Mathematics, 2009
This paper discusses the experience of a preservice secondary mathematics teacher during lesson study. Although the preservice teacher was a strong undergraduate mathematics student, she used compensation "moves" to deflect attention away from her insecurities about her conceptual understanding of secondary mathematics. She feared being labeled as…
