Through a century-long process, there has been a resolute effort to shape science teaching in elementary classrooms. A close look at science teaching and student learning may provide a better understanding of what really happens in elementary classrooms. This study examines relationships between science teaching pedagogy, teachers' science teaching attitudes and student learning outcomes of fifteen Oregon fifth-grade teachers. The resulting qualitative and quantitative data provides insights into the relationships between teacher practices and attitudes, and student success.
