Abstract Title: The Effect of Inquiry-Based Early Field Experience on Pre-Service Teachers Understanding & Attitudes
Abstract: As part of a pre-service science course for teachers at California Polytechnic University, Pomona we provided an early field inquiry-based teaching experience. A K-12 science specialist and Cal Poly faculty member worked together to help students develop a formal standards-based lesson plan and present to a class of 4th grade students in a local elementary school. Data will be presented to demonstrate the effect of the field experience in student content knowledge, science reasoning skills, ability to teach inquiry-based science lessons, as well as their attitudes towards teaching.
