A major reason for the perceived national crisis in science education is the failure to prepare K-12 teachers to teach science effectively. Science methods courses taught in departments of education cannot help teachers develop the depth of understanding that they need to be able to teach science as a process of inquiry. Responsibility for the subject matter preparation of teachers lies with science faculty. However, in physics and related disciplines, neither courses for majors nor for non-majors provide the kind of preparation required for teaching science by inquiry. Special physics courses expressly designed for this purpose on the basis of research have proved successful not only with prospective teachers but also with other students. The intellectual objectives and instructional methods that characterize these courses are discussed in the context of specific examples. These are drawn from more than 25 years of experience in the Physics Department at the University of Washington.
