This book examines the process of Biology teacher preparation in diploma colleges and universities in Kenya. Specifically, it interrogates the appropriateness and possibilities of implementing a quality Biology Teacher Education Programme. Dr. Momanyi establishes that preparation of Science teachers at diploma colleges is better owing to the positive attitudes of both trainees and trainers, high level of management support and allocation of appropriate resources and facilities towards teacher preparation. He observes that, on the contrary, most teacher trainees at degree level have a negative attitude towards teacher education and at the same time teacher training departments at university level are poorly equipped with necessary resources and facilities. The author advocates for equipping of teacher preparation departments with appropriate and adequate training resources and facilities. He recommends that teacher training programmes should, as much as possible, integrate subject content and pedagogy. The book is highly recommended for policy makers in the area of science education, university lecturers and prospective Science and Biology teachers.
