van Eijck, Michiel; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2010
The notion of "place", as in "place-based education", has received considerable attention in educational theorizing because of its potential to link students, their lifeworlds, and their experiences in particular settings to formal education. However, in current debates of place-based education, the notion of "place" is emerging as problematic.…

Goulart, Maria Ines Mafra; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2010
In this study we investigate how 5-year-old children in Brazil and their teachers collectively design science curriculum. More specifically, we develop an agency|structure dialectic as a framework to describe this collective praxis in which science curriculum may emerge as the result of children-teacher transactions rather than as a result of…

Hsu, Pei-Ling; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Research in Science Education, 2010
Science educators often suggest that students should learn science in ways and settings that bear family resemblance with "the real thing." Internship in science laboratories constitutes one such way in which students may learn science and learn about science. However, very little is known about "how" participants experience a…

Reis, Giuliano; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Journal of Environmental Education, 2010
Emotions are important aspects in/for the pedagogy of environmental education (EE). However, the literature on the relationship between emotions and EE has not explored how emotion talk furnishes teaching identity claims and mediates instruction in/about the environment. Therefore, the present study draws on two ethnographic case studies to…

Hsu, Pei-Ling; van Eijck, Michiel; Roth, Wolff-Michael – International Journal of Science Education, 2010
Working at scientists' elbows is one suggestion that educators make to improve science education, because such "authentic experiences" provide students with various types of science knowledge. However, there is an ongoing debate in the literature about the assumption that authentic science activities can enhance students' understandings…

Emad, Gholamreza; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Vocations and Learning, 2009
Policy implementation research in general and educational policy in particular is loosely connected to policy-making processes. There is a gap particularly in the field of vocational education. This often leads to conflicts and contradictions between policy-maker objectives and end-user implementation. To avoid such a disconnect, the relation…

Hsu, Pei-Ling; Roth, Wolff-Michael; Mazumder, Asit – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2009
Many science educators encourage student experiences of "authentic" science by means of student participation in science-related workplaces. Little research has been done, however, to investigate how "teaching" naturally occurs in such settings, where scientists or technicians normally do not have pedagogical training and generally do not have…

van Eijck, Michiel; Hsu, Pei-Ling; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Science Education, 2009
In the science education research literature, it often appears to be assumed that students "possess" more or less stable "images of science" that directly correspond to their experiences with scientific practice in science curricula. From cultural-historical and sociocultural perspectives, this assumption is problematic because scientific…

Hsu, Pei-Ling; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Science Education, 2009
Apprenticeship and the associated support mechanism of scaffolding have received considerable interest by educational researchers as ways of inducting students into science. Most studies treat scaffolding as a one-way process, where the expert supports the development of the novice. However, if social processes generally and conversations…

Roth, Wolff-Michael; Thom, Jennifer S. – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2009
Mathematical concepts and conceptions have been theorized as abstractions from--and therefore transcending--bodily and embodied experience. In this contribution, we re-theorize mathematical conceptions by building on recent philosophical work in dialectical phenomenology. Accordingly, a conception exists only in, through, and as of the experiences…

Roth, Wolff-Michael; Thom, Jennifer S. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2009
Geometry, classification, and the classification of geometrical objects are integral aspects of recent curriculum documents in mathematics education. Such curriculum documents, however, leave open how the "work" of classifying objects according to geometrical properties can be accomplished given that the knowledge of these properties is the…

Hsu, Pei-Ling; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Research in Science Education, 2009
Most academic science educators encourage teachers to provide their students with access to more authentic science activities. What can and do teachers say to increase students' interests in participating in opportunities to do real science? What are the discursive "resources" they draw on to introduce authentic science to students? The purpose of…

van Eijck, Michiel; Roth, Wolff-Michael – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2009
Bringing a greater number of students into science is one of, if not the most fundamental goals of science education for "all", especially for heretofore-neglected groups of society such as women and Aboriginal students. Providing students with opportunities to experience how science really is enacted--i.e., "authentic science"--has been advocated…

Roth, Wolff-Michael; van Eijck, Michiel; Hsu, Pei-Ling; Marshall, Anne; Mazumder, Asit – American Biology Teacher, 2009
This article reports on the results of the authors' research and development work that was designed to study the impact of internships in scientific laboratories on high school students. The authors sketch how the internships affected cognitive outcomes, experiences and attitudes, and the career aspirations of the high school students. The…

Roth, Wolff-Michael – Language and Education, 2009
Educators generally are concerned with testing what learners know by means of written tests, as if knowledge was some intrapsychological thing or state that could be translated and externalized into some interpsychologically available inscription that is a more-or-less accurate approximation of what the person knows. In such endeavors, language is…
