Conference Proceedings Detail Page

written by Randy J McGinnis and Rachel T Davis
This is one component of an in-depth, longitudinal case study investigating the deliberate attempt to infuse a science multicultural perspective throughout an elementary teacher education program at a major research university. Intending teachers' perspectives of being inducted into a profession overtly signifying its commitment to multicultural awareness and action were documented during their methods experience, their student teaching experience, and during the first few years of their teaching practice. The focus in this paper is the student teaching component for 40 prospective science teachers. Data sources were individual semi-structured audiotaped interviews. Data were analyzed through standard qualitative techniques to generate insights for science teacher educators. Implications for science teacher education focus on the assertions that intending teachers bring multiple perspectives to their teaching and that these perspectives face a commitment test during the student teaching experience. In addition, intending teachers discovered during student teaching that the schools in which they were placed did not really value science teaching.
