Abstract

Science teacher preparation (STP) programme began with a situation in which science teachers learned on the job. They learn about disciplinary knowledge, educational foundations and science teaching methods. Research on science teaching and STP programme have been conducted to improve the quality of science education, however the gap between theories of teaching and teaching practice continues to haunt educators. Novice science teachers admit that STP programme failed to prepare them to be a good science teacher. This paper aims to highlight problems faced by novice science teacher through in-depth interviews with five science teachers. Information obtained can be guidance in developing more comprehensive STP programme.
