Formatted Abstract/Summary In this paper we analyze a design experiment aimed at supporting the professional development in statistics of twelve middle-school teachers in the United States. We explain how adopting a sociocultural framework allowed us to account for teachers’ struggles to make sense of instructional practices in statistics that place students’ reasoning at the center of instructional decision-making. We also account for how the adoption of the sociocultural framework allowed us to envision a viable way in which to better support the professional development of the participating teachers.
