    E-mail Author
    JESSICA THOMPSON is an Assistant Professor in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Washington. Her research focuses on building networked communities that aim to improve ambitious and equitable teaching practice with multiple role actors (science teachers, science and English Language Learner (ELL) coaches, principals, district leadership, and students). She is interested in understanding the intersection of classroom practice, learning, and identity development for teachers and students in high poverty settings. She had published articles including "Engaging girls' socio-historical identities in science" in Journal of the Learning Sciences and "Developing a theory of ambitious early-career teacher practice" in American Educational Research Journal.

    HOSUN KANG is an Assistant Professor at the University of California Irvine. She is interested in providing powerful science learning experiences to all students.  Her research addresses two core issues facing the fields of science teaching and learning. One is supporting the students who are historically underserved in science classrooms to engage the sciences meaningfully, and the other is supporting early-career teachers to approximate and take up research-based practices. She co-authored “Creating a future in science: Tracing middle school girls’ identity work over time and space,” in American Educational Research Journal. She is the lead author of an article published in Science Education, “Creating opportunities for students to show what they know: The role of scaffolding in assessment tasks."

    E-mail Author
    DAVID STROUPE is an Assistant Professor of teacher education at Michigan State University. He has three overlapping areas of research interests anchored around ambitious teaching practice. First, he frames classrooms as science practice communities. Using lenses from Science, Technology, and Society (STS) and the History and Philosophy of Science (HPS), he examines how teachers and students negotiate power, knowledge, and epistemic agency. Second, he examines how beginning teachers learn from practice in and across their varied contexts. Third, he studies how teacher preparation programs can provide support and opportunities for beginning teachers to learn from practice. He has published in Science Education, "Examining classroom science practice communities: How teachers and students negotiate epistemic agency and learn science-as-practice" and co-authored an article in Science Scope, "Students modeling molecule movement through science theater."

    MARK WINDSCHITL is a Professor in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Washington. His research interests deal with the early-career development of science teachers. He develops and studies a system of tools and tool-based practices for early career and pre-service secondary science teachers that supports transitions from novice to expert-like pedagogical reasoning and practice. He has co-authored "Rigor and equity by design: Seeking a core of practices for the science education community" (in progress) in AERA Handbook of Research on Teaching (5th ed.) and "Proposing a core set of instructional practices and tools for teachers of science" in Science Education.
