dc.description.abstractThe attitudes of sixty-nine elementary education students toward science and science teaching were measured at three different times as they progressed through the Elementary Science Methods course at the State University of New York College at Brockport during the spring of 1991. The course was divided into two parts. During the first half of the semester, the students attended methods classes at the college. At approximately midterm, the students entered elementary schools to do field work. The instrument of measure employed was the Science Teaching Attitude Scales. The three scores for each subject were compared to determine if there was any growth of positive attitudes toward science and science teaching, thereby demonstrating the effectiveness of the Elementary Science Methods course. The results from this study demonstrate that the Elementary Science Methods classes are effective in producing positive changes in the subjects' attitudes toward science and science teaching. The subsequent field work is determined to not be effective in further improving students' attitudes.
