Effective Practices in Preservice Physics Teacher Education: Recruitment, Retention, and Preparation
Note: The book based on this solicitation has now been published.
Manuscript proposals are currently being solicited for Effective Practices in Preservice Physics Teacher Education: Recruitment, Retention, and Preparation. This peer-reviewed book, which is being sponsored by the Physics Teacher Education Coalition (PhysTEC), the American Physical Society (APS), and the American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT), will be co-edited by Dr. Eric Brewe and Dr. Cody Sandifer. Effective Practices in Preservice Physics Teacher Education is scheduled for publication in 2015.
Effective Practices in Preservice Physics Teacher Education is a collected set of peer-reviewed papers that focuses on describing effective practices and successful implementations in preservice high school physics teacher education. While the previous volume, Teacher Education in Physics: Research, Curriculum, and Practice, addressed the research base for physics teacher education, this volume seeks to provide a practical guide to innovative, state-of-the-art programs, and will include papers in the following areas: Recruitment and Retention; Early Teaching Experiences; Preparation in Physics Knowledge, Scientific Practices, and Physics Teaching; The Collaborative Nature of Teacher Preparation; Mentoring and Community-Building; and Case Studies of Successful Preservice Teacher Education Programs. The intended audience is physics department chairs and faculty, as well as faculty in Colleges of Education who are engaged in physics teacher preparation.
