Guo, Jian-Peng; Yang, Ling-Yan; Ding, Yi – Research in Science Education, 2019
Researchers have consistently demonstrated that studying multiple examples is more effective than studying one example because comparing multiple examples can promote schema construction and facilitate discernment of critical aspects. Teachers, however, are usually absent from those self-led text-based studies. In this experimental study, a…

Korsun, Igor – Physics Education, 2019
This article is aimed at justifying sensible use of inventive tasks in physics teaching. The justification will encourage teachers to form learners' creative thinking; in particular, the course of physics has the great potential for forming learners' creative thinking. Being adapted to the course of physics, the basic stages to solve inventive…

Marshall, Cory – Science Teacher, 2019
This article describes how one teacher introduced Earth science topics to a 10th-grade biology class using a 3D printer. The activities described give students opportunities to visit Earth's geologic landmarks through kinesthetic modeling. 3D-printed topographical maps function as a supplement to, or replacement of, two-dimensional drawings,…

Zorluoglu, Seraceddin Levent; Kizilaslan, Aydin – Journal of Education and e-Learning Research, 2019
In this study, evaluative case study was used to determine the realization level of the outcomes in the 10th chemistry curriculum. The 23 outcomes in the 10th grade chemistry curriculum were analyzed by two researchers. In order to determine the realization of the achievements based on practice, a chemistry teacher who attended the 10th grade…

Wu, Yanming; Lin, Angel M. Y. – Classroom Discourse, 2019
While translanguaging research has been gaining currency worldwide, calls have been made for deepening its theorisation and providing more systematic pedagogical guidance. To contribute to this discussion, this study is informed by a fluid, distributed, dynamic process view of human meaning-making. Through a fine-grained multimodal analysis of…

Duarte, José; Robert Nogueira, João – Education Sciences, 2019
This paper presents protests from academically successful students who privately conveyed to the researchers their feelings of personal discontent with schools. The criterion to select this "sample" was that these students, dissatisfied with school but having good marks, would reveal what others, academically less successful, could not…

Teke, Dilek; Sozbilir, Mustafa – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
This study aimed to identify the needs of a 10th grade congenitally blind student in an inclusive chemistry classroom and design and develop tactile materials to teach the 'energy in living systems' topic with particular emphasis on covering the symbolic language of the chemistry. A single case study design was used to carry out an in-depth and…

Loh, Adrian Sin Loy; Subramaniam, R. – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2018
This study evaluates the use of an open-ended question to determine students' knowledge structure on the topic of galvanic cells. The open-ended question was developed and administered to 163 Grade 10 students who had earlier completed a course on electrochemistry. Students' responses were marked as well as coded on the basis of the fields…

Mupira, Pio; Ramnarain, Umesh – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2018
Due to apartheid policies, Black African learners in South Africa have been severely disadvantaged in school science. Despite policy changes to redress these historical imbalances, Black African learners continue to underperform in science. Previous research has identified motivation as a key factor that impacts performance. Achievement goal…

Lu, Shanshan; Bi, Hualin; Liu, Xiufeng – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
The study that is the subject of this paper tested the effects of EDI (explanation-driven inquiry) on students' redox conceptual understanding and their misconceptions. Two classes of 119 10th grade high school students were involved. Two groups of students in the same school were chosen. One class that was taught by EDI teaching was set as the…

Zhai, Xiaoming; Li, Min; Guo, Yuying – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
To explore the affordances of learning progressions (LP) in support of teachers' formal and informal formative assessment (FFA and IFA) practices, we conducted a case study with a fine-grain-sized energy LP. The study first theorises an LP-based formative assessment model, which proposes the use of LPs in clarifying learning objectives, eliciting…

Sanchez, Joje Mar P. – Science Education International, 2018
Understanding chemistry requires the interplay of several modes of representations which can be observed in the translational skills of students. This paper investigated the extent of the translational skills of students exposed to conventional lecture method (CLM) and the integrated macro-micro-symbolic approach (IMMSA). Individual interviews…

Wagh, Aditi; Cook-Whitt, Kate; Wilensky, Uri – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2017
Research on the design of learning environments for K-12 science education has been informed by two bodies of literature: inquiry-based science and Constructionism. Inquiry-based science has emphasized engagement in activities that reflect authentic scientific practices. Constructionism has focused on designing intuitively accessible authoring…
