McNeill, Katherine L.; González-Howard, María; Katsh-Singer, Rebecca; Loper, Suzanna – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2016
Despite the recent emphasis on science practices, little work has focused on teachers' knowledge of these key learning goals. The development of high quality assessments for teachers' pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) of science practices, such as argumentation, is important to better assess the needs of teachers and to develop supportive…

McDonald, Scott P. – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
Science teacher educators use examples of practice to support teacher candidates (TCs) learning to engage in new forms of science teaching. However, interpretation of these examples assumes a level of expertise about practice TCs lack. This article describes a study designed to determine some of the differences between expert teachers' and TCs'…
