Journal ArticleDigital resources are stored online in your NSTA Library.

Using the science practice model in science classes for preservice teachers addresses three important aspects of science teacher preparation: teaching the nonlinear nature of scientific process, using scientific practices rather than the ambiguous term inquiry-based, and emphasizing the process of metacognition as an important tool in teaching and learning. In this article the authors provide two examples of how the model can be used with preservice teachers.

This is a well-written article that presents multiple high-quality figures to illustrate the modern nonlinear scientific method and the activity model for inquiry. The authors do an excellent job connecting their work to the NGSS.
