Overview of the Task Force's recommendations to increase the number of highly trained high school physics teachers.

The number, diversity, and consistency of research
outcomes provide substantial evidence for the effectiveness
of the methods recommended in the Task Force Report.
• The recommendations are also consistent with long-standing
practices, philosophies, and research of teacher education
programs in other countries that have demonstrated learning
outcomes superior to those observed in the United States.
• The literature on physics teacher education in the U.S. and
around the world indicates clearly that physics teacher
education programs can be effective if they are thoroughly
grounded in physics education research and sharply focused
on developing expertise with physics-specific pedagogy
