David Stroupe

Assistant Professor

I am an assistant professor of teacher education at Michigan State University. I have three overlapping areas of research interests anchored around ambitious teaching practice. First, I frame classrooms as science practice communities. Using lenses from Science, Technology, and Society (STS) and the History and Philosophy of Science (HPS), I examine how teachers and students negotiate power, knowledge, and epistemic agency. Second, I examine how beginning teachers learn from practice in and across their varied contexts. Third, I study how teacher preparation programs can provide support and opportunities for beginning teachers to learn from practice. I have a background in biology and taught secondary life science for four years.
