MetadataShow full item record
High school science teachers were surveyed regarding their use of best practices and demographic information. Best practices in this study are strategies to enable learning as defined by McREL. The results of the survey are divided by demographics of groups separated by differences in population density setting, gender, degree attainment, years of experience, years teaching in current school, years since last pedagogical training, and National Board Certification ofthe respondents. The groupings illustrate what best practices high school science teachers are using, who the science teachers are, and what the differences are between the use of best practices of the teachers in different settings. Based on the responses to the survey, science teachers most likely to use best practices have master's degrees, are men 41-50 years of age who have been teaching for 11-15 years, have been in the same school for 11-15 years, have not received pedagogical training for 26-30 years, have national certification, and teach in rural or suburban schools.
