Investigated as predictors of preservice elementary teachers' attitudes toward the teaching of science were scores on the science subtests of the C-BASE and ACT, number of college science hours, and college GPA. The Science Attitude Scale for Preservice Teachers, measuring comfort/discomfort of teaching science, science as a basic need, time required to prepare and to teach science, and handling of science equipment, was administered to the sample (N=210) during the first week of the elementary science methods class. The stepwise regression yielded C-Base science and college science hours as predictors of attitude toward teaching science. (The Science Attitude Scale for Preservice Teachers is contained in the appendix. (Contains 33 references.) (Author)
