PhysTEC Teacher Preparation Articles

published by PhysTEC
Aug 26, 2007

There is growing national recognition of a need for improved preparation of physics and physical-science teachers. At the same time, there is an extensive and growing body of research and research-based practice related to this issue. However, there is as yet no single source in which scholarly work in this field has been made available. In response, the American Physical Society and American Association of Physics Teachers have decided to publish a compendium of articles on the preparation of physics and physical-science teachers. This book will include new reports reflecting cutting-edge research and practice, as well as reprints of previously published seminal papers. It is planned that printed copies of the book will be distributed to chairs of all physics departments in the United States.  The book will also be freely available online.
