Kevin Meuwissen, who joined the Warner School faculty in 2009, directs the social studies teacher preparation program. He has taught at the high school, undergraduate, and graduate levels, and has served in professional development and program evaluation capacities for several U.S. Department of Education Teaching American History grants.

Meuwissen’s teaching and research focus on helping secondary social studies teachers develop a deliberative stance toward curriculum, instruction, and the political institution of schooling as they interact with diverse influences on their pedagogical decisions.

His research and teaching interests explore the development of “adaptive expertise” among teachers as well as strategic thinking across the social studies disciplines and the transformation of such thinking into social discourse and action. Most recently, his research explores secondary students’ political thinking and socialization and uses studies of student learning and case-building with prospective teachers as a means of conceptualizing and negotiating complex, and often discrepant, curricular aims.
