Science--Study and teaching; Postsecondary education
Described is a first course in education at the University of Minnesota for prospective science teachers which combines educational psychology, science content and micro-leaching experiences. The methods used and logistical problems related to such a course also are described. Students in the course kept daily logs of their reactions lo curricular materials, teaching techniques, and the micro-teaching experience to provide positive feedback to the instructors. In an examination covering the psychology aspects, all students in the combined course scored above the median for students from other sections. This experimental course has been adopted as the pattern for all science education majors.
