Teacher Education in Physics: Research, Curriculum, and Practice


File Size: 5.89 Mb

Description
This book came about due to an increasing national recognition of a need for improved preparation of physics and physicalscience teachers. Although there is an extensive and growing body of research and research-based practice in physics teacher education, there has been no single resource for scholarly work in this area. In response, the Physics Teacher Education Coalition (PhysTEC), a project of the American Physical Society (APS) and American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT), decided in 2007 to publish a compendium of research articles on the preparation of physics and physical-science teachers. The PhysTEC project management selected Editors and an Editorial Board for the book based on recommendations from the physics education community. The editorial group worked to devise a set of guidelines regarding submission of manuscripts. This resulting book includes new reports that refl ect cutting-edge research and practice, as well as reprints of previously published seminal papers. Printed copies have been distributed to chairs of all physics departments in the United States.

The papers included in this book address physics and physical-science teacher preparation, with a focus on physics education research and research-based instruction and curriculum development. The primary audience is physics department chairs and faculty members at physics-degree-granting institutions in the United States. However, the book is also envisioned to be useful for faculty in colleges of education who are engaged in physics teacher preparation.
