Teacher Education in Physics: Research, Curriculum, and Practice 

edited by David E. Meltzer and Peter S. Shaffer
published by the American Physical Society

This book came about due to an increasing national recognition of a need for improved preparation of physics and physical science teachers. Although there is an extensive and growing body of research and research-based practice in physics teacher education, there has been no single resource for scholarly work in this area. In response, The Physics Teacher Education Coalition (PhysTEC) project management selected Editors and an Editorial Board for the book based on recommendations from the physics education community. The editorial group worked to devise a set of guidelines regarding submission of manuscripts. This resulting book includes new reports that reflect cutting-edge research and practice, as well as reprints of previously published seminal papers.
