Roth, Wolff-Michael – Interactive Learning Environments, 1994
Describes a study focusing on the role of chalkboards in classroom science talk. Discusses similarities of the overall structure of the whole-class conversation with scientific laboratory talk. Suggests implications for design of technologies that allow larger numbers of students to participate in whole-class sense-making conversations.…

Lucas, Keith B.; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Research in Science Education, 1996
Investigates the relationship between students' views of the nature of scientific knowledge and their own learning of physics, and the evolution of this relationship over time. Uses two intensive case studies to illustrate students' views over time. Discusses the changes in students' views concerning the nature of scientific knowledge and the…

Roth, Wolff-Michael; Roychoudhury, Anita – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 1994
A study involving 42 students enrolled in a physics course was conducted to document students' epistemologies and their concurrent views about knowing and learning. Analyses revealed a spectrum of epistemological commitments commensurable with positions from objectivism to relativism. Implications to classroom environment are discussed. (ZWH)

Roth, Wolff-Michael – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 1995
Discusses a study designed to understand 11th-grade students' learning during conversations with their teacher over and about a computer-based Newtonian microworld, Interactive Physics. Illustrates that students' learning was not local but persistent, in that they used appropriate canonical science talk without teacher support. (36 references)…

Milkent, Marlene M.; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 1989
Investigated were the effects of interactive computer-generated homework on unit tests, a final examination, and a comprehensive test given near the end of a Physical Science I course. The results indicated that the use of the homework reduced the effectiveness of the American College Test scores as a predictor of course achievement. (YP)

Roth, Wolff-Michael – Learning Environments Research, 1998
A study of two classes of eighth-grade science students taught by the same teacher investigated student perceptions of learning environment, achievement levels, and conceptual understanding of research. Found relationships between autonomy and student-centeredness scales and post-testing. Features three student case studies, underscoring the…

Roth, Wolff-Michael; McGinn, Michelle K. – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 1998
Develops the analytical framework in which inscription (i.e., grades) and actor network are the central points. Exemplifies this framework in a case study of grades and grading practices. Shows how the framework can be used to provide constructive poststructuralist analyses and how the efforts of critical and liberation pedagogies are undercut by…

Roth, Wolff-Michael; Bowen, G. Michael – Cognition and Instruction, 1995
Examines perceptions of eighth graders in a science teaching environment in which they guide their own learning, frame problems for inquiry, design data collection procedures, and interpret and present data in a convincing fashion. Asserts that, in constructing their inquiries, students successfully negotiated courses of action and established…

Roth, Wolff-Michael – Science Education, 1995
Conducted an ethnography to evaluate the usefulness of the notion of community of practice in classroom settings. Documents how collectively available knowledge of a classroom community was transformed as resources and practices were adopted by more and more members. Discusses implications for the organization of classroom environments that…

Roth, Wolff-Michael; Bowen, G. Michael – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 1994
Investigates the use of mathematical representations in 3 grade-8 general science classes (n=65) that engaged in a 10-week open inquiry about the correlations between biological and physical variables in the environment. Demonstrates the use of representations as conscription devices, and illustrates how the use and understanding of inscriptions…

Roth, Wolff-Michael – School Science and Mathematics, 1992
Provides a rationale for a learning environment in science classrooms that integrates science, mathematics, and technology while solving authentic problems. Describes activities that can be used in such an environment and presents data regarding students' attitudes toward the described activities. (MDH)

Roth, Wolff-Michael – School Science and Mathematics, 1993
Provides an example of the integration of science and mathematics learning of one high school physics student in a constructivist classroom. Discusses the student's integration of mathematical and nonmathematical representations and of different mathematical representations in a nonuniform acceleration experiment. Describes a model for integrating…

Roth, Wolff-Michael – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 1992
Compared the effects of participation in six extra credit activities for teaching the concept of matter on female preservice elementary school teachers (n=9) to a control group (n=8). Pre- and posttests to assess changes in the students' understanding of phenomena associated with matter indicated significant changes in experimental students'…
