Abstract

In a training program for experienced high school science and mathematics teachers, trainees made good academic progress and eventually adjusted well to the return to university work. The program's main weakness was failure to transmit attitudes and information relevant to teaching science, not only as a body of knowledge, but as a way of thinking.
