Patterson, Jill Voorhees; Johnson, Ane Turner – Journal of Research in Education, 2017
Sustainability issues have led to increased demands for a STEM-literate society and workforce. Potential contributors need to be competent, have an understanding of earth and physical sciences, and be willing to pursue such fields. High school girls, however, remain underrepresented in physical science course enrollments (College Board, 2014).…

Taher, Tanzina; Mensah, Felicia Moore; Emdin, Christopher – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2017
This ethnographic case study follows two urban immigrant students in their yearlong journey in an urban science classroom where the first two pedagogic tools of reality pedagogy (cogenerative dialogue and co-teaching) were implemented. This study examines the role reality pedagogy plays in the science classroom for these two students, while…

Kelly, Resa M.; Akaygun, Sevil – Journal of Chemical Education, 2016
This article summarizes an investigation into how Flash-based cartoon video tutorials featuring molecular visualizations affect students' mental models of acetic acid and hydrochloric acid solutions and how the acids respond when tested for electrical conductance. Variation theory served as the theoretical framework for examining how students…

Gokpinar, Tuba; Reiss, Michael – International Journal of Science Education, 2016
The literature in science education highlights the potentially significant role of outside-school factors such as parents, cultural contexts and role models in students' formation of science attitudes and aspirations, and their attainment in science classes. In this paper, building on and linking Bourdieu's key concepts of habitus, cultural and…

Lin-Siegler, Xiaodong; Ahn, Janet N.; Chen, Jondou; Fang, Fu-Fen Anny; Luna-Lucero, Myra – Journal of Educational Psychology, 2016
Students' beliefs that success in science depends on exceptional talent negatively impact their motivation to learn. For example, such beliefs have been shown to be a major factor steering students away from taking science and math courses in high school and college. In the present study, we tested a novel story-based instruction that models how…

Spektor-Levy, Ornit; Aloni, Oshra; Zion, Michal – International Journal of Environmental and Science Education, 2016
The novelty of this study is rooted in the uniqueness of its setting: Informal, in school, Mini Science Museum that is managed by high school students who also develop teaching materials and guide the visitors. The phenomenological study presented here followed, over a period of 9 months, a group of 11 students that served as the museum's…

Mujtaba, Tamjid; Reiss, Michael J. – Canadian Journal of Science, Mathematics and Technology Education, 2016
This article explores how students' aspirations to study mathematics or physics in post-16 education are associated with their perceptions of their education, their motivations, and the support they feel they received. The analysis is based on the responses of around 10,000 students in England in Year 8 (age 12-13) and then in Year 10 (age 14-15).…

Chiu, Mei-Shiu – Research in Science Education, 2016
The aim of this study was to identify challenges in implementing a physics-before- 10 mathematics curriculum. Obviously, students need to learn necessary mathematics skills in order to develop advanced physics knowledge. In the 2010 high school curriculum in Taiwan, however, grade 11 science students study two-dimensional motion in physics without…
