Keazer, Lindsay; Jung, Hyunyi – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Problem solving has long been a priority in mathematics education, and the first Common Core mathematical practice (SMP1) focuses on this priority through the language of "Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them." We present findings from a survey about how prospective elementary teachers' (PTs) make sense of potential…

Navy, Shannon L.; Kaya, Fatma – School Science and Mathematics, 2020
Problem-based learning (PBL) and science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) are two acronyms widely visible in education literature today. However, few studies have explored these in connection with one another, specifically with regard to teacher preparation. This study investigated how 47 prospective elementary teachers developed…

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…

Cormas, Peter C.; Middlemiss, Samantha – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Mathematics and science have similar learning processes (SLPs) and it has been proposed that courses focused on these and other similarities promote transfer across disciplines. However, it is not known how the use of these processes in lessons taught to children change throughout a preservice teacher education course or which are most likely to…

Jung, Hyunyi; Stehr, Eryn M.; He, Jia – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Engaging with mathematical modeling can support learners to collaboratively explore mathematics in integrated ways as well as generate mathematical ideas and representations that may be useful in everyday life. Although several studies provide diverse insights into teaching and learning mathematical modeling, research has yet to be conducted on…

Perkins Coppola, Matthew – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Research indicates there is a need for teachers to experience multiple mastery experiences with engineering teaching in order to improve teaching engineering self-efficacy. To prepare future K-5 teachers to teach the engineering design process, one science methods course integrated 2-day engineering mini-units into the class meeting and…

Jung, Hyunyi; Newton, Jill A. – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
Mathematical modeling has been highlighted recently as Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) included Model with Mathematics as one of the Standards for Mathematical Practices (SMP) and a modeling strand in the high school standards. This common aspect of standards across most states in the United States intended by CCSSM authors and…

Saylor, Laura Lackner; Walton, Janet B. – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
In order to explore the potential for math-talk learning communities (utilizing interactive discussions of mathematics principles) as a framework for preservice teacher learning, a math-talk learning community framework was adopted in a methods of teaching mathematics course for preservice early elementary teachers. A case study of the co-created…

Radloff, Jeffrey; Guzey, Selcen – School Science and Mathematics, 2017
Nationally, there is a steadily increasing emphasis on the improvement of STEM education. This includes the integration of STEM subjects that have been traditionally taught separately, making it critical that prospective STEM educators are equipped to teach using integrated STEM approaches. Connected, an important challenge is providing preservice…

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'…

McDonald, Scott P. – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
Science teacher educators use examples of practice to support teacher candidates (TCs) learning to engage in new forms of science teaching. However, interpretation of these examples assumes a level of expertise about practice TCs lack. This article describes a study designed to determine some of the differences between expert teachers' and TCs'…

Rinke, Carol R.; Gladstone-Brown, Wendy; Kinlaw, C. Ryan; Cappiello, Jean – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
Although science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education sits at the center of a national conversation, comparatively little attention has been given to growing need for STEM teacher preparation, particularly at the elementary level. This study analyzes the outcomes of a novel, preservice STEM teacher education model. Building…

Lewis, Elizabeth; Dema, Oxana; Harshbarger, Dena – School Science and Mathematics, 2014
Despite historical national efforts to improve elementary science education, science instruction continues to be marginalized, varying by state. This study was designed to address the ongoing challenge of educating elementary preservice teachers (PSTs) to teach science. Elementary PSTs are one of the science education community's major links…

Cardetti, Fabiana; Truxaw, Mary P. – School Science and Mathematics, 2014
Research suggests the importance of mathematics knowledge for teaching (MKT) for enabling elementary school teachers to effectively teach mathematics. MKT involves both mathematical content knowledge (M-CK) and mathematical pedagogical content knowledge (M-PCK). However, there is no consensus on how best to prepare elementary preservice teachers…

Goodson-Espy, Tracy; Cifarelli, Victor V.; Pugalee, David; Lynch-Davis, Kathleen; Morge, Shelby; Salinas, Tracie – School Science and Mathematics, 2014
This study explored how mathematics content and methods courses for preservice elementary and middle school teachers could be improved through the integration of a set of instructional materials based on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). A set of eight instructional modules was developed and tested. The study involved 7…
