Our Practice, Their Readiness: Teacher Educators Collaborate to Explore and Improve Preservice Teacher Readiness for Science and Math Instruction
The authors are four preservice teacher educators who became collaborators and co-researchers to explore their preservice teachers' attitudes toward science and mathematics. The authors found significant differences among the PTs in the program, both in terms of their attitudes and prior experiences of science and math education, and in their confidence in engaging their students in these subjects. This collaborative research project provided two avenues for professional learning: the findings we established from the data collected from the PTs and the actual experience of collaborating and learning about each others’ philosophical stances.

This study presents Colonial Williamsburg’s Electronic Field Trip program as an instrumental case for generating a conceptual model for authentic VFTs that can be used to support the creation and utilization of additional VFTs in the social studies. The findings from this case provide important information for developing successful virtual field trips. In addition, the ensuing VFT model should be helpful for teachers and VFT developers.
