Abstract: Despite the importance of providing practice-based science to students in inclusive settings, little research investigates how teachers differentiate their support. This embedded, single case study examines how two elementary teachers enacted a four-week, practice-based science project in general and inclusive classrooms. Findings show that teachers necessarily customized practice-based science curricular materials to specific learning contexts, and highlight the potential unintended outcomes that may arise as students in different classes received different kinds of verbal support. This study provides insight into the ways that teachers can modify their enactment of activities to support students to engage in practice-based science, and the kinds of professional development experiences that elementary teachers may need to be able to support all students to engage in practice-based science.
