This secondary analysis study focused on how interactions among preservice teachers' pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) components developed throughout a 14-week CoRe-based mentoringenriched practicum course, and the nature of those interactions. Data were collected from three preservice teachers, information-rich cases, by the use of content representation (CoRe) and semi-structured interviews. Content analysis and the constant comparative method were employed in the data analysis. Results revealed that the development of integrations was idiosyncratic. Additionally, PCK integration moved from fragmented to a more integrated and coherent one by the end of the semester. Implications for science teacher education and research are discussed.

The Nature of interplay among components of pedagogical content knowledge in reaction rate and chemical equilibrium topics of novice and experienced chemistry teachers
Akın, Fatma Nur; Kondakçı, Esen; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2017)
In this qualitative multiple-case design study, I examined the interactions among pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) components of novice and experienced chemistry teachers in teaching reaction rate and chemical equilibrium topics. For this aim, three chemistry teachers who had different levels of teaching experience in chemistry teaching were selected through a process of purposeful sampling. Data were collected through card-sorting task, Content Representation (CoRe) tool, semi-structured interviews, obs...
Interaction among Contextual Knowledge and Pedagogical Content Knowledge: Sociocultural Perspective
Şen, Mehmet; Öztekin, Ceren (Turkish Education Association, 2019-01-01)
This study examined middle school science teachers' contextual knowledge, pedagogical content knowledge and impact of contextual knowledge on pedagogical content knowledge based on sociocultural perspective. Data were collected from two teachers through semi-structured contextual knowledge interview, semi-structured pedagogical content knowledge interview, and classroom observations and then data were analyzed by deductive and inductive coding. Findings revealed four assertions regarding how teachers' conte...
Interactions among Topic-Specific Pedagogical Content Knowledge Components for Science Teachers: The Impact of Content Knowledge
Şen, Mehmet; Demirdöğen, Betül ; Öztekin, Ceren (2022-01-01)
This study investigated in what ways and to what extent the interactions between the components of pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) differ for junior high school science teachers with different levels of content knowledge. Data were collected from three science teachers through semi-structured interviews and classroom observations. The participants' content knowledge was analyzed based on inductive coding and the teachers were labeled as curriculum-led, content-expert, and content-novice. Interactions am...
Examination of interaction between pre-service chemistry teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge and content knowledge in electrochemistry
Kutucu, Elif Selcan; Boz, Yezdan; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2016)
The purpose of this study was to examine the interaction between pre-service chemistry teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) and content knowledge (CK) while teaching electrochemistry. Two pre-service chemistry teachers enrolled in practice teaching course in chemistry education program. All PCK components were studied in the current study to examine participants’ PCK. In order to get detailed information and understand deeply the interaction between CK and PCK, qualitative methodology was used and ...
The nature of the interplay among components of pedagogical content knowledge in reaction rate and chemical equilibrium topics of novice and experienced chemistry teachers
Akın Çelebi, Fatma; Kondakçı, Esen (2018-01-01)
We examined the interactions among pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) components of novice and experienced chemistry teachers in teaching reaction rate and chemical equilibrium topics in this qualitative multiple-case design study. For this aim, three chemistry teachers who had different levels of teaching experience in chemistry teaching were selected through a process of purposeful sampling. Multiple types of data were gathered through more than two months. In order to collect and triangulate data, a car...
