Michele C. Cheyne is a Clinical Faculty member in Science Education at the University of Pittsburgh where she teaches a variety of courses in the secondary science teacher preparation program. She also supervises pre-service teachers during their clinical experiences and works closely with in-service teachers. She has worked with Pittsburgh Public Schools on several projects and provides professional development for professional laboratory training programs. She has worked with the Interstate New Teachers Assessment and Support Consortium in Washington, DC as a member of the committee that wrote the 2001 document Model Standards for Licensing General and Special Education Teachers of Students With Disabilities: A Resource for State Dialogue. She taught high school biology and chemistry for eleven years in Milwaukee Public Schools prior to moving to Pittsburgh. While teaching in MPS she also served as a department chair, hosted a multitude of pre-service teachers, and co-taught with several special education teachers in inclusive settings. She also taught science methods courses at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee for both future science teachers and for future special education teachers.

Randy K. Yerrick is Professor of Science Education and Associate Dean of Educational Technology at the State University of New York at Buffalo. He began his career as a chemistry, physics, and math teacher in Michigan schools before becoming a full-time researcher in science education. Dr. Yerrick's research focuses on implementing contemporary visions of science inquiry in lower track classrooms where students share a strong history of failure and antisocial school behaviors. Dr. Yerrick has conducted ethnographies and critical autoethnographies in a variety of diverse teaching contexts as he continues to examine unresolved school issues of equity and diversity promoted by the continuous practice of tracking in science. He has also received recognition as an Apple Distinguished Educator, a group of innovative educators representing over 20 countries who integrate technology into classroom instruction in a 21st Century global learning community. Examples of his work can be found at http://edcommunity.apple.com/.

Neal A. Glasgow has been involved in education on many levels. His experience includes serving as a sec-ondary school science and art teacher both in California and New York, as a university biotechnol-ogy teaching laboratory director and laboratory tech-nician, as an educational consultant, and as a frequent educational speaker on many topics. He is the author of five books on educational topics: What Successful Teachers Do: 91 Research-Based Strategies for New and Veteran Teachers (2003), Tips for the Science Teacher: Research-Based Strategies to Help Students Learn (2001), New Curriculum for New Times: A Guide to Student-Centered Problem-Based Learning (1997), Doing Science: Innovative Curriculum Beyond the Textbook for the Life Science Classroom (1997), and Taking the Classroom Into the Community: A Guide Book (1996). Neal is currently teaching AP art history and art at San Dieguito Academy High School, a California public high school of choice, and continues to do research and write on educational topics as well as work on various art projects. He is married, the father of two grown sons, and the grandfather of one grandson.nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;nbsp;
