Teacher education approaches. (English)
Harlen, W., Education for teaching science and mathematics in the primary school. ,. 59-64 (1993).
It is suggested that in all three dimensions of teacher education programmes - subject matter, pedagogical knowledge, classroom practice - the teaching approaches should foster trainees’ activity and reflection. Differences between the demands of mathematics and science require corresponding differences in teacher workshops, whilst similarities argue for common elements. If differences and commonalities are to be balances, a "mixed-economy" is suggested, in which differences are not neglected and the commonalities are exploited. (orig.)
