The purpose of this study was to investigate prospective chemistry teachers’ knowledge about instructional strategies, one component of pedagogical content knowledge about introducing particulate theory, as well as sources of this knowledge. Twenty-two prospective chemistry teachers participated in the study. Data were collected by the means of a vignette, semistructured interviews, and lesson plans. Analysis showed that concrete objects, computer animations, and expository teaching were the preferred teaching techniques by prospective teachers. Several issues, such as general pedagogical knowledge, subject matter knowledge, and knowledge about students’ difficulties, were found to be the main factors for choosing a teaching strategy to make an introduction to particles.

A Metasynthesis of Research on Foreign Language Teacher Identity in Turkey: Implications for Teacher Education
Taner, Gülden; Karaman, Abdullah Cendel (2013-12-01)
This study explores main areas of research and identifies patterns that help interpret current tendencies in the literature on aspects related to language teacher education. For this purpose, we report the outcomes of a metasynthesis of 44 studies related to teacher identity. Conceptually, the analysis is guided by how teacher identity is framed. The structured searches in relevant databases led to conducting a particular type of systematic review known as template analysis. As a result, based on the inter...
An investigation of development of prospective elementary teachers’ knowledge to teach algebra in early grades through case discussions
Öztürk, Nejla; İşler Baykal, Işıl; Department of Mathematics Education (2021-9-3)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the development of prospective elementary teachers’ subject matter and pedagogical content knowledge for teaching algebra in elementary grades. Prospective elementary teachers attended a 5-week (10 hours) intervention as part of a method course, Teaching Mathematics I, that was designed based on case discussions. The participants of the study were nine third-year students who were enrolled in the course in the 2020-2021 fall semester as a must course of the under...
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 ...
A Study on science teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge and content knowledge regarding cell division
Şen, Mehmet; Öztekin, Ceren; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2014)
This study attempted to investigate in-service science teachers’ content knowledge including substantive and syntactic structures and pedagogical content knowledge regarding cell division. Data were collected from three experienced science teachers (two males and one female) teaching cell division in 8th grade level in private middle schools through pre-interviews, observations, post-interviews and teacher documents in this multiple case study. Participants were found to have lack of knowledge in nature of ...
Interaction between experienced chemistry teachers' science teaching orientations and other components of pedagogical content knowledge in mixtures
Ekiz Kıran, Betül; Boz, Yezdan; Department of Secondary Science and Mathematics Education (2016)
The purpose of this study was twofold: The first one was to investigate all components of experienced chemistry teachers’ pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) which are science teaching orientations (STO), knowledge of learner, knowledge of curriculum, knowledge of instructional strategy and knowledge of assessment, and the second one was to examine the interactions between their science teaching orientations and the other components of PCK. Two experienced chemistry teachers participated in the study and th...
