Weitzel, Holger; Blank, Robert – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
Prospective teachers perceive peer coaching as a supportive learning opportunity providing benefits in peers' engagement in active learning, communicative competences, and critical thinking about teaching. Little is known about whether peer coaching also promotes the development of pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) in teacher education, which is…

Lauterbach, Alexandra A.; Benedict, Amber E.; Yakut, Ayse D.; Garcias, Alejandra A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
Secondary students with learning disabilities are likely to learn science in an inclusive classroom. Their success often depends on teachers' ability to support their literacy needs. In this quasi-experimental study, we examine the effect of teacher' involvement in intensive professional development designed to deepen secondary science teachers'…

Berland, Leema K.; Russ, Rosemary S.; West, Cori P. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
Meaningfully engaging students in the NGSS scientific practices requires that student ideas become the driving force of classroom activity. However, in order for student ideas to take on this new role, teachers must engage in responsive teaching in which they elicit, notice, and respond to the substance of student thinking. In this work, we…

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…

Carrier, Sarah J.; Grifenhagen, Jill F. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
The academic language of science includes science content words and words that describe the practices of scientists. The present study examined science vocabulary knowledge and science vocabulary instruction practices of pre-service teachers enrolled in a primary science methods course. This exploratory mixed-methods study presents quantitative…

Menon, Deepika – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
The purpose of this mixed-methods research was to investigate changes in preservice elementary teachers' science teacher identities and self-efficacy beliefs as they participate in a field-based science methods course. A total of 121 preservice teachers participated, four of which were purposefully selected who held varied initial levels of…

Masters, Heidi – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
Within two sections of science methods for elementary and middle-school teachers, an embedded, multi-case study design was employed to explore whether teaching rehearsals would better prepare preservice teachers (PSTs) to implement explanation-driven science instruction. A teaching rehearsal allows PSTs to practice teaching a segment of their…

Benedict-Chambers, Amanda; Fick, Sarah J.; Arias, Anna Maria – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
This study investigated how practice-based science methods courses, at three different institutions, provided opportunities for preservice teachers (PSTs) to develop new ways of enacting and noticing ambitious teaching through analyzing rehearsal lessons. We examined 194 written rehearsal reflections for similarities and differences in the types…

Barnhart, Tara; van Es, Elizabeth A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
Video is used widely to support teachers' learning and enactment of responsive instruction. Informed by principles of video club design, we designed a video club to support secondary science teachers developing a vision of responsive teaching, attention to student thinking, and a critical discourse to analyze their own and others' efforts to enact…

de Graaf, Arjan; Westbroek, Hanna; Janssen, Fred – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
In this study we investigated how a theoretical framework we developed for making differentiated instruction practical worked out in a trajectory (1 year, 5 sessions) that aimed to support 5 secondary biology teachers in designing differentiated instruction practices. The key feature of the framework is the development of cost-effective…

Heineke, Amy J.; Smetana, Lara; Carlson Sanei, Jenna – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Teacher education programs are responsible for preparing science teachers for today's culturally and linguistically diverse classrooms, which includes preparing them to support students' science learning and language development. Given the rapid growth in linguistic diversity across the country, science teacher preparation for English learners,…

McDonald, Scott; Grimes, Paul; Doughty, Leanne; Finlayson, Odilla; McLoughlin, Eilish; van Kampen, Paul – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
This article reports on an investigation of a workshop approach to probe and deepen Irish preservice teachers' (PSTs') initial professional pedagogical vision of inquiry-based science education (IBSE). In an effort to understand the experiential and historical foundation of their vision, we report on the current culture of science teaching and…

Johnson, Heather J.; Mawyer, Kirsten K. N. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Practice-based approaches to teacher education should emphasize strategies that help teacher candidates centralize student thinking in instructional practice while providing a rationale for why student thinking is integral to student learning. This study describes how secondary science teacher candidates engage in tool-supported analysis of…
