Investigation of Problem Solving Behaviors of Social Studies Teacher Candidates

Ozkan AKMAN [1] , Bulent ALAGOZ [2]


One of the important goals of contemporary education is to educate people who are able to solve the problems they are confronted with by themselves, that is, the difficulties that people face in their life and society. In this context, only information is not enough to solve the problem. Problem solving abilities can effectively use advanced human knowledge and solve the problems they are facing more easily. The aim of this study is to determine what methods of social studies teacher candidates use to solve social problems and what is the problem-solving behavior in this process. The research was prepared using qualitative techniques. The data were obtained through focus group interview and analyzed by descriptive analysis. According to the results of the research, it is seen that 1st and 2nd grade students are in a superficial approach to problem solving. However, it is observed that the teacher candidates who continue to the 4th grade have a deeper approach and use more problem-solving methods. In addition, the results show that the problem solving strategies they use when solving social problems differ according to the class level and the use of the strategy belonging to experienced problem solvers as the class level increases. On the basis of the results obtained, suggestions such as the development of strategy teaching programs aimed at teaching students to solve problem-solving skills should be included in the lessons and to provide problem solving strategies for students.
