Li, Yeping, Ed.; Howe, Roger E., Ed.; Lewis, W. James, Ed.; Madden, James J., Ed. – Advances in STEM Education, 2021
The need to improve the mathematical proficiency of elementary teachers is well recognized, and it has long been of interest to educators and researchers in the U.S. and many other countries. But the specific proficiencies that elementary teachers need and the process of developing and improving them remain only partially conceptualized and not…

Sengupta, Pratim, Ed.; Shanahan, Marie-Claire, Ed.; Kim, Beaumie, Ed. – Advances in STEM Education, 2019
Over the past decade, integrated STEM education research has emerged as an international concern, creating around it an imperative for technological and disciplinary innovation and a global resurgence of interest in teaching and learning to code at the K-16 levels. At the same time, issues of democratization, equity, power and access, including…

Uzzo, Stephen Miles, Ed.; Graves, Sherryl Browne, Ed.; Shay, Erin, Ed.; Harford, Marisa, Ed.; Thompson, Robert, Ed. – Advances in STEM Education, 2018
This volume represents both recent research in pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), as well as emerging innovations in how PCK is applied in practice. The notion of "research to practice" is critical to validating how effectively PCK works within the clinic and how it can be used to…

Pyke, Curtis; Sikorski, Tiffany-Rose; Bray, Rebecca; Popson, Colleen – Advances in STEM Education, 2018
This chapter is about the design and study of a pre-service teacher field experience that takes place at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History's immersive space Q?rius ("curious"). Q?rius features more than 6000 specimens including shells, skeletons, fossils, rocks, and minerals that are organized in non-text collections…

Harlow, Danielle B.; Hansen, Alexandria K.; McBeath, Jasmine K.; Leak, Anne E. – Advances in STEM Education, 2018
Despite the potential of the maker movement to influence how we teach students in school, thus far, most research on maker activities have taken place in informal spaces, such as museums and after-school programs, which are inaccessible to some populations. To ensure maker education reaches "all" students, it must find its place at…

Wilson, Christopher D.; Stuhlsatz, Molly; Hvidsten, Connie; Gardner, April – Advances in STEM Education, 2018
In this chapter, we describe an approach to professional development grounded in a model of PCK that centers around a teacher's knowledge of how to elicit and respond to student thinking, to engage students in the practices of science, and to develop coherent and effective learning experiences. This approach has been shown to be effective in…

Seeley, Lane; Etkina, Eugenia; Vokos, Stamatis – Advances in STEM Education, 2018
In this chapter we envision the science classroom as an authentic scientific community. In this vision, student ideas can influence the trajectory of scientific investigation. Teachers serve as experts and guides, but they also can learn alongside their students. To do this, they need to listen to the students and be able to build on students'…

DePiper, Jill Neumayer; Driscoll, Mark – Advances in STEM Education, 2018
We propose that there exists mathematical knowledge for teaching (MKT) specific to visual representations (VRs), abbreviated MKT-VR. We define a VR as a graphic creation, such as a diagram or drawing, which illustrates quantities and shows quantitative relationships or which illustrates geometric properties of figures and shows geometric…

Harford, Marisa; Leopold, Rachel; Williams, Wendy Thomas; Chatham, Elizabeth – Advances in STEM Education, 2018
This case study describes the interactions between pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) and practitioner inquiry as observed in a residency-model teacher preparation program. In the Math and Science Teacher Education Residency (MASTER), novice teachers engaged in iterative cycles of assessing student thinking and using that assessment to reflect on…

Sloan, Kay; Allen, Alison; Bass, Kristin M.; Milligan-Mattes, Erin – Advances in STEM Education, 2018
From 2013 to 2017, Rockman et al. developed and tested various strategies for assessing the pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) of novice and experienced STEM teachers. The research, conducted as part of Rockman's external evaluation of the "Mathematics and Science Teacher Education Residency" (MASTER) project, began with a review of…

Cain, Christine R.; Graves, Sherryl Browne – Advances in STEM Education, 2018
This chapter examines the integration of pedagogical content knowledge in graduate-level biology courses in a secondary teacher preparation program. Given the residency format of the program, expertise from college faculty in biological sciences and education, science educators from a science museum, and educators working with a high school…

Uzzo, Stephen Miles; Ba, Harouna; Umer, Laycca – Advances in STEM Education, 2018
In this chapter, the authors discuss the potential, value, and barriers to supporting PCK in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines through collaborations across learning settings, with special attention to the role of informal science learning institutions in preservice teacher preparation. Particular focus is provided…

Loper, Suzanna; McNeill, Katherine L.; Goss, Megan – Advances in STEM Education, 2018
Science teachers need support in developing pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) around science practices such as argumentation. Educative curriculum materials (ECMs) have great potential as a tool to support teachers' PCK development, particularly for in-service teachers. In this chapter, we describe an intervention in which we developed and…

Lau, Matty; Multani, Satbir – Advances in STEM Education, 2018
Empowering students to utilize science and mathematics to solve the world's problems is needed to prepare them for their future. To do that, science and mathematics teachers must know how to integrate engineering into their classrooms. In this chapter, we describe a novel museum-based field experience for novice science and mathematics teachers to…
