Sjöberg, Marlene; Nyberg, Eva – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
Professional knowledge for science teaching develops over time and interplays with professional experiences in field. In the present study, we explore student teachers' reflective conversation upon teaching experiences, with pedagogical content knowledge, PCK, as an analytical lens. The empirical data is based on nine meetings, with groups of 3-6…

Biggers, Mandy; Miller, Alison Riley; Zangori, Laura; Whitworth, Brooke A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
The mentoring relationships between preservice teachers and their cooperating teachers have been established as critical to the retention or attrition of novice teachers (Clarke, Triggs, & Nielsen, 2014), yet little research has been conducted to examine what factors around mentor teacher selection and support are most salient to creating…

Thompson, Stephen L.; Emmer, Ed – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
This exploratory case study centered on 3 beginning elementary science teachers who experienced variations in practice-based instructional approaches within their elementary teacher development sequence. We define "practice-based instructional approaches" as engaging with teaching approximations that occur in authentic classroom settings…

Boesdorfer, Sarah B.; Del Carlo, Dawn I.; Wayson, Jessica – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Recent adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) across the United States has prompted teacher educators to reexamine effective strategies to improve science teaching practices that align with the principles of the NGSS. Past research attempted to address changing teaching practices by examining the alignment--or lack thereof--with…

Seung, Elsun; Park, Soonhye; Lee, Myung-Ah – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
The purpose of this research is to examine the effect of a summer camp-based science methods course on elementary pre-service teachers' self-efficacy in teaching science as inquiry. The science camp was offered to K-6 students as part of the 4-week, 3-credit science teaching methods course over the summer. The pre-service teachers were asked to…

Adler, Idit; Zion, Michal; Rimerman-Shmueli, Esther – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
This study examined teachers' expressions of the dynamic characteristics of open inquiry, which emphasize the scientific, continuous, and flexible thinking and affective aspects associated with the inquiry process. Metacognitive prompts supported teachers' reflections as they engaged in an open inquiry process. Using both qualitative and…

Weller, Jacolyn – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
This article presents a case of online publishing in teacher education and explores the status preservice teachers (PSTs) associate with this act. Publishing as a teacher education strategy is investigated to inform the use of tutorial products that provide learning and teaching advantages. Motivated by Education for Sustainability, professional…

Ogodo, Justina A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Many high school classrooms in the United States have physics teachers who are teaching the subject outside their certified content areas because of a severe shortage of physics teachers. There is a critical need to improve the knowledge base of these out-of-field teachers. This comparative case study examined the instructional practice of…

Zangori, Laura; Foulk, Jaimie; Sadler, Troy D.; Peel, Amanda – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
Engaging learners in modeling practices can promote substantial science learning, and anchoring science teaching in societal issues can promote student motivation to learn and make learning experiences more meaningful. However, elementary teachers have had few prior experiences with either modeling or socioscientific issues (SSI) and so are…

Kang, Emily J. S.; Donovan, Corinne; McCarthy, Mary Jean – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
The aim of this study was to assess elementary teachers' pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) of and confidence in their ability to support students in enacting the science and engineering practices (SEPs) of the Next Generation Science Standards. Findings from this study were used to inform the planning of a professional development program for…

Borgerding, Lisa A.; Dagistan, Murat – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
The teaching of socioscientific issues (SSI) holds promise for advancing functional scientific literacy, promoting critical thinking, and providing an interesting context for learning required science content, but few teachers actually employ this teaching method in K-12 classrooms. One common reason cited by teachers is their concern about the…

Pringle, Rose M.; Mesa, Jennifer; Hayes, Lynda – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
Teacher professional development (PD) is central to the realization of the current reform efforts in science education. In this qualitative study, we investigated how educative curriculum materials supported middle school science teachers' learning within the context of a comprehensive PD program focused on the enactment of a reform-based science…

Zangori, Laura; Friedrichsen, Patricia J.; Wulff, Eric; Womack, Andrew J. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
We studied how the practices of modeling supported preservice teachers (PSTs) as a reflection tool for knowledge integration in their science methods courses. In this exploratory study, elementary (n = 4) and middle/secondary (n = 7) PSTs drew models of the process of teaching and learning, including what occurred before, during, and after…

Boesdorfer, Sarah B. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
The inclusion of engineering practices poses a challenge for many science teachers trying to meet the expectations of the Next Generation Science Standards because they lack formal training in engineering. This, however, may provide an opportunity for science teacher educators striving to improve the use of learner-centered teaching practices by…

Donna, Joel D.; Hick, Sarah R. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
Gaps in elementary teachers' subject matter knowledge influence their teaching and student learning of science. Educative curriculum materials can support teacher subject matter knowledge. We investigated whether preservice teachers in 2 universities (n = 92) had gains in subject matter knowledge if they participated in modeled instruction related…
