Science Standards Require a Teacher-Learning Rethink

A fascinating article that I’ll need to be reading and thinking more deeply about.  As a former science teacher I have long recognized the benefits and deficits that I had as a teacher from my teacher training.  I think that I was prepared as well as if not better than some other education programs, but I’m biased towards Ohio Wesleyan University!  If OWU is the exception, though, what needs to be done to help better prepare science teachers as we move into new state standards and inch closer to federal standards in science teaching and learning.  I think that this will come down the tubes in the next 5 years, maybe fast if the CCSS are successfully implemented.
