There is a chronic shortage of appropriately qualified science and mathematics teachers particularly in disadvantaged, rural and isolated communities. Less experienced and out-of-field teachers who often teach in these contexts face difficulties in accessing professional learning and mentoring. While increasing their access to quality resources is useful, these teachers need to both decide whether a resource is appropriate in their context and be able to use it confidently. This paper reports on the process used in the STEMCrAfT project to explicate the knowledge that experienced science and mathematics teachers use when selecting and using resources, and the framework that resulted.
