Abstract

Recent curriculum and regulatory changes in K-6 education require an integrative focus by primary teachers. Initial teacher education (ITE) responds to these changes with program innovation to support preservice teacher competencies, subject matter knowledge and pedagogical skill. stem as a recent rhetorical focus provides new opportunity and impetus for ITE programs to support preservice primary teachers to integrate the stem disciplines more deliberately. This chapter provides a number of examples of ITE program elements across the stem Key Learning Areas that illustrate how preservice teachers can be positioned to take an integrative approach to science, technology and mathematics.
