My experience at the University of Maryland extends over an eight-year period during which I, with the help of others, designed an introductory physics course for preservice elementary teachers. The course was modeled after the AAPT Powerful Ideas in Physical Science. This became part of the course and program changes associated with the Maryland Collaborative for Teacher Preparation and NSF-sponsored program. The nature of a physics or physical-science course appropriate for elementary teachers is revealed in some of the statements shared with the students in the course syllabus.

The expectations of the NSES speak to all elements of our community. Colleges and universities have an obligation to prepare teachers able to meet the standards, and departments have their role to play. The physics community is one of the most successful in terms of studying teaching and learning.
