In this article, we describe a collaborative approach to preparing graduate students for teaching the methods class at our university. We document the approach to preparation, our connections to the methods course itself, the tensions in the methods course that we identified in working together, and the important choices about and modifications we made to the course based on the tensions we identified. Our collaborative approach to preparing and planning for the methods class gave us a deep understanding of our context and unique challenges as we evolved the course.
