Models By Science Teacher Candidates for The Teaching the Reutilization of Wastes

Zeynep Aksan, Dilek Çelikler

Abstract


The aim of this study was to have science teacher candidates develop models for teaching the subjects of recycling and reutilization of wastes. The study was performed with a total of 30 third-year and fourth-year students attending the Science Education Department of a Turkish University. The study results indicated that all eight models developed by the teachers candidates within the scope of this study emphasized recovery, while four of them also highlighted recycling, and four of them also focused on reutilization. It was observed that all science teacher candidates developed models by using solid wastes. Plastic and paper-cardboard were the most frequently used wastes in models developed within the scope of this study, while metal and composites wastes were not used in any of the teacher candidate models. It was observed that all of the models emphasized the reutilization of wastes for different purposes.
