In this paper we will examine Shulman’s notion of signature pedagogies for its usefulness extended to school science, to analyse a representation-intensive pedagogy that lays claim to bringing school science closer to the knowledge building practices of science itself. Two case studies of teaching and learning will be presented based on research in primary and secondary schools that involved working closely with teachers to develop and validate the pedagogy. Video images of classrooms, interviews with students and teachers, and documentation of students’ work, were used to construct insights into the teaching and learning process. It is argued that Shulman’s notion of professional practice as involving apprenticeships of knowledge, practice and identity provides a useful lens through which to view this innovation. Shulman’s characterisation of signature pedagogy is used to identify key features of the approach.
