Bossér, Ulrika; Lindahl, Mats – Research in Science Education, 2019
The integration of socioscientific issues (SSI) in science education calls for emphasizing dialogic classroom practices that include students' views together with multiple sources of knowledge and diverse perspectives on the issues. Such classroom practices aim to empower students to participate in decision-making on SSI. This can be accomplished…

Snodgrass Rangel, Virginia; Bell, Elizabeth; Monroy, Carlos – Education and Urban Society, 2019
Accountability policies assume that educators will use student data to improve student learning, but data use in practice has turned out to be harder than theorized. The purpose of this article was to examine how science teachers in Grades 5 to 8 used data in their classrooms. Utilizing sensemaking theory, we found that teachers decided how to use…

Akuma, Fru Vitalis; Callaghan, Ronel – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2019
Since scientific literacy has become a key goal in science education, many people have argued in favor of the incorporation of inquiry in science education. However, scattered in the literature are extrinsic and intrinsic teaching challenges linked to the design and implementation of inquiry-based practical work (IBPW) in secondary school science…

González-Howard, María – Science Education, 2019
Supporting student engagement in science practices requires rethinking how classroom learning occurs, specifically in terms of the interactions that help students build their own knowledge. The types of student-driven exchanges fundamental to the science practice of argumentation differ greatly from traditional classroom interactions. To help…

Phillips, Tina B.; Ballard, Heidi L.; Lewenstein, Bruce V.; Bonney, Rick – Science Education, 2019
To date, most studies of citizen science engagement focus on quantifiable measures related to the contribution of data or other output measures. Few studies have attempted to qualitatively characterize citizen science engagement across multiple projects and from the perspective of the participants. Building on pertinent literature and…

Bruna, Carola E.; Valenzuela, Nicole A.; Bruna, Daniela V.; Lozano-Rodríguez, Armando; Márquez, Carolina G. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
Problem-based learning using authentic material from the web was used to teach metabolism in a biochemistry course. In place of traditional lectures, students' analyzed health or nutrition articles from newspapers and magazines, which were debatable from a scientific point of view, following the principles of problem-based learning. A mixed method…

Gul, Tugce; Demir, Kadir; Criswell, Brett – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Mentoring, as one of the formal teacher leadership roles, creates a space for teachers to display their leadership potential as it indirectly brings value to the school community (Ensher & Murphy, 2006). The purpose of this qualitative case study is to examine mentor teachers' perceptions whether they transfer their evolving mentoring skills…

Liepertz, Sven; Borowski, Andreas – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The structure and definition of professional knowledge is a continuing focus of science education research. In 2012, a pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) summit was held and it suggested a model of professional knowledge and skill including PCK, which was later often called the Consensus Model (Gess-Newsome, 2015. A model of teacher professional…

Kind, Vanessa; Chan, Kennedy K. H. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This paper concludes the Special Issue (SI) 'Probing the Amalgam: the relationship between science teachers' content, pedagogical and pedagogical content knowledge'. We review the five papers (Sorge et al; Gess-Newsome et al; Kind; Pitjeng-Mosabala and Rollnick; and Liepertz and Bronowski) by discussing evidence these present regarding the…

Steier, Rolf; Kersting, Magdalena – Cognition and Instruction, 2019
Though we live in a 4-dimensional universe, our minds and bodies are not particularly good at perceiving and depicting 4 dimensions. This study contributes to our understanding of collaboration with abstract concepts by examining particular activities where bodily and experiential understandings may conflict with the conceptual domain.…

Schmidt-McCormack, Jennifer A.; Judge, Jessyca A.; Spahr, Kellie; Yang, Ellen; Pugh, Raymond; Karlin, Ashley; Sattar, Atia; Thompson, Barry C.; Gere, Anne Ruggles; Shultz, Ginger V. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Acid-base chemistry is a foundational topic that is taught in courses across the chemistry curriculum. Students often have difficulty distinguishing between the different theories of acid-base chemistry--Brønsted-Lowry and Lewis acid-base chemistry--and applying these two definitions correctly in unfamiliar scenarios. To help students learn these…

Bevins, Stuart, Ed.; Lehane, Louise, Ed.; Booth, Josephine, Ed. – IGI Global, 2019
The core practice of professional scientists is inquiry, often referred to as research. If educators are to prepare students for a role in the professional scientific and technological community, exposing them to inquiry-based learning is essential. Despite this, inquiry-based teaching and learning (IBTL) remains relatively rare, possibly due to…

Lange, Alissa A.; Brenneman, Kimberly; Mano, Hagit – Teachers College Press, 2019
This book is designed to build educators' confidence and competence so they can bring STEM to life with young children. The authors encourage pre-K teachers to discover the value of engaging preschoolers in scientific inquiry, technological explorations, engineering challenges, and math experiences based on learning trajectories. They explain the…

Prime, Glenda M., Ed. – Peter Lang Publishing Group, 2019
"Centering Race in the STEM Education of African American K-12 Learners" boldly advocates for a transformative approach to the teaching of STEM to African American K-12 learners. The achievement patterns of African American learners, so often described as an "achievement gap" between them and their White peers, is in fact the…
