Welcome to the Innovations Journal!

Wishing everyone a wonderful 4th of July! We are pleased to announce that Volume 4, Issue 3 of the Innovations in Science Teacher Education journal is now available at:


This issue features an article that describes an innovation to prepare teachers and teacher candidates to design instruction that promotes students’ disciplinary language development during rigorous and meaningful science instruction. This issue also contains an article that presents a lesson development, implementation, revision, and reflection cycle used to support preservice secondary science teachers in learning to teach English learners effectively. This issue further has an article which describes a sequence of lessons, readings, and resources aimed to prepare elementary preservice teachers for science instruction wherein student sensemaking, rather than vocabulary memorization, is prioritized.

We are also extremely thankful for our dedicated editorial review board members who always provide insightful comments and suggestions to authors.
