Grounding Inquiry-based Teaching and Learning Methods in Physics Experiences for Prospective Elementary Teachers 

written by Gordon J. Aubrecht, II

In teaching inquiry classes in physics, I ask students to reflect on their learning in journals. One of the journal questions deals with student expectations of transfer of the inquiry techniques used in our class into their own classrooms when they become teachers themselves. I report on students' answers to this question over a five-year period, which gives insight into how much or how little the students think the techniques are worth to themselves as both students and prospective teachers.
