  Description The Physics Education Group at the University of Washington is developing a set of inquiry-oriented materials for the preparation of high school teachers. Tutorials for Teachers of Physics covers more advanced topics than Physics by Inquiry (Wiley, 1996) and goes into greater depth than Tutorials in Introductory Physics (Pearson, 2002). These materials are intended to help teachers strengthen their understanding of important concepts, gain familiarity with common student difficulties, reflect on research-validated instructional strategies, and practice assessing student learning. This workshop is primarily intended for faculty and others responsible for the preparation and professional development of teachers. Participants will gain hands-on experience with Tutorials for Teachers of Physics, which have been tested in courses and institutes for preservice and inservice teachers. Requirements for effective implementation will be discussed. *Supported in part by the NSF.
