Book Talk: Preparing Science Teachers Through Practice-Based Teacher Education


Join us for an online Book Talk. Stanford’s Graduate School of Education’s Science in The City Research Group welcomes the team of Dr. David Stroupe, Dr. Karen Hammerness, Dr. Scott McDonald, & Dr. Kirsten Mawyer. Together, they wrote an incredible text that explores and challenges how we train modern science teachers. Given, theoretical and practical challenges of teaching science, teacher educators must have a detailed understanding of how to build a science teaching force that understands students, understands curriculum, and understands core pedagogical practices. Join us for an online exploration of their new book.
