This article reports on an interview study that explored how teacher educators across different disciplines anticipate the work that must be done to produce critical professionals to teach the new Australian curriculum. The authors summarize the differences indicated across the four curriculum areas sampled: English teacher educators seemed mostly concerned about political interference in educational matters; history teacher educators seemed mostly concerned about the status of knowledge in the proposed curriculum; a maths educators had concerns around the rationale for selection of curricular content; and science educators were concerned about personal relevance and the pedagogical implications of over-selection of content.

Knowledge Expectations in Mathematics Teacher Preparation Programs in South Korea and the United States: Towards International Dialogue
This study explores social expectations around adequate knowledge for prospective secondary mathematics teachers in South Korea and the United States. The authors selected a sample of 49 teacher preparation institutions in South Korea and the United States. The findings suggest that transnational commonalities and national differences exist simultaneously, and examining both is necessary to better understand teacher knowledge.

Curriculum-Context Knowledge: Teacher Learning From Successive Enactments of A Standards-Based Mathematics Curriculum
This study characterizes the teacher learning that stems from successive enactments of innovative curriculum materials. The study conceptualizes and documents the formation of curriculum-context knowledge (CCK) in three experienced users of a Standards-based mathematics curriculum. The results point to the larger need to account for the knowledge necessary to use Standards-based curricula and to relate the development and existence of well-elaborated knowledge components to evaluations of curricula.
