Abstract Title: A First Look: ISLE in a Pre-Service Teacher Science Classroom.
Abstract: Changes to the physics instruction for our pre-service middle level science teachers began in Fall 2010.  The core of those changes has been the Investigative Science Learning Environment (ISLE).  This initial implementation of an ISLE based curriculum provided an opportunity for qualitative investigation.  Students were asked a complex question requiring multiple representations and higher order thinking on their end of the quarter exam.  This poster will discuss the first iteration of the course, the question with student responses, and implications for further refinement of the use of ISLE in the pre-service teacher physics content courses.
