Current research in science teaching and learning highlights the crucial role of teachers’ discursive practices on orchestrating collaborative learning environments that promote all students’ participation, aiming at contributing to equity and social justice. Achieving these aspirations requires a robust initial teacher education that allows preservice teachers to incorporate the discursive practices as a central objective of science education. This chapter presents a comprehensive literature review, identifying fundamental knowledge and experiences for future teachers to manage science education discursive practices. The findings, presented in three theoretical-practical analytical dimensions (disciplinary and epistemological, linguistic, and pedagogical) point to future research and to decision-making in science teacher education.
