Building a better science teacher
by Wingert, Pat
The article discusses science education and the value of teachers with a mastery of scientific thinking and mathematical skills. Topics include how the economic recession in the U.S. has focused attention on math and science education programs and the training of math and science teachers, how only a minority of science and math teachers have degrees in their subjects, and how charter schools and pilot programs are recruiting skilled instructors. Additional information is presented on effective teaching strategies, including reducing students' fear of errors and hands-on lessons. INSETS: Not So Prepared to Inspire; What Scientists Say.
