This comprehensive volume advances a vision of teacher preparation programs focused on core practices supporting ambitious science instruction. The book advocates for collaborative learning and building a community of teacher educators that can collectively share and refine strategies, tools, and practices.


A well-crafted resource on practice-based teacher education that extends the science setting. Beyond core practices, this book illuminates various facets of practice-based teacher education—how theory, identity, equity, community, and context are all part of its fabric. The scholarship of teacher education in this book showcases stories of collaboration, inquiry, and adaptation by teacher educators and pre-service teachers. — Hala Ghousseini, associate professor, University of Wisconsin-Madison

This book is both a useful guide to what it means to organize teacher education around core practices, and an invitation to join a collective of teacher educator-scholars who are reinventing how they prepare and collaborate with prospective teachers in culturally responsive, and scientifically rich ways.  An informative and inspiring read about the challenging work of science teacher education. — Suzanne M. Wilson, professor, University of Connecticut
