Abstract: This study focuses on a set of core, or high-leverage, practices in teacher education in order to allow pre-service teachers to begin to develop a set of necessary skills to successfully support student learning through inquiry (Grossman et al., 2009b). Specifically, in the secondary science teacher preparation program teacher educators adopted a practice- based focus in which secondary pre-service science teachers participated in the high-leverage practice of engaging students in task-based science discussions and the planning of those discussions. The results suggest that pre-service teachers are able to incorporate aspects of these instructional models in their discussion planning practices. The results also suggest a shift in focus on different aspects of planning over time and across science disciplines that open the possibilities for future work.
