Feldman, Allan; O¨zalp, Dilek – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
National and international standards documents are calling for science teachers to teach their students how to engage in the practices of science. Previous studies have found that most science teachers do not have the knowledge and skill to do this because they have not had experience engaging authentically in science. One way to overcome this…

Kawasaki, Jarod; Sandoval, William A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
We report on one teachers' efforts to re-design an entire instructional unit as a coherent storyline about forces and motion as a part of a multiyear professional development (PD) project around the NGSS. Designing coherent storylines demands that teachers create opportunities for students to meaningfully engage in science practices in order to…
