ASTE Position Statements

ASTE provides  leadership in science teacher education by identifying the qualities and standards for the preparation and development of teachers of science; these are set forth in the form of position statements, which are used to support the improvement of science teacher education at all levels.

The following ASTE position statements represent the organization’s official stand on key issues important to the teaching and learning of science teachers, as well as the membership’s response to these issues. Position statements are reviewed every 5 years, under direction of the President. You can indicate your interest in serving on a review panel by completing this online form.
