This article is about a study which was undertaken to ascertain whether primary pre-service teachers' perceptions changed as a result of learning (within a Social Science Curriculum Studies unit) about the nature and composition of a worldview and its implications for professional practice. More specifically, were there any changes in pre-service teachers' perceptions in relation to: a) prevalence of individuals in the general population holding a worldview; b) competence to articulate a personal worldview; c) the impact that a teacher's worldview may have on subject content taught; and d) the importance of understanding worldview formation in the teaching of Social Science.
