Luft, Julie A.; Whitworth, Brooke A.; Berry, Amanda; Navy, Shannon; Kind, Vanessa – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Science teacher professional development is complex. Phases in a teacher's career necessitate different professional learning opportunities. Furthermore, knowledge bases, practices, and attributes need to be cultivated during these times. For science teachers, it is not always evident how to link professional learning opportunities progressively…

Pleasants, Jacob; Olson, Joanne K. – Science Education, 2019
What is engineering? What do engineers do? How is engineering related to, but distinct from, science? These questions all relate to the nature of engineering (NOE), and as engineering is incorporated into K-12 education across the United States, the NOE is becoming increasingly important for students and teachers. While many policy documents call…

De Leo-Winkler, M. A.; Wilson, G.; Green, W.; Chute, L.; Henderson, E.; Mitchell, T. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
The Deaf have often been overlooked when designing informal STEM education and public outreach activities. Astronomers at UC Riverside and teachers at the California School for the Deaf, Riverside (CSDR), have designed an astronomy workshop aimed specifically for the Deaf using the school's on-site sound lab. We have used astronomy for this…

McNeill, Katherine; Reiser, Brian J. – Learning Professional, 2018
More than 60% of U.S. school children are being educated in states in which Next Generation Science Standards or other framework-derived standards have been adopted. This vision demands a central role for students to engage in science and engineering practices to build and use science ideas, rather than solely learning about the science others…

Lindholm, Markus – Science & Education, 2018
Curiosity is a wonder of the human mind. It goes to the heart of modernity, as a driving force for learning, novel insights, and innovation, both for individuals and communities. In societies dependent on science and development, finding out what promotes or hampers curiosity and wonder in school curricula and science education is accordingly…

Alameh, Sahar; Abd-El-Khalick, Fouad – Science & Education, 2018
Stemming from the realization of the importance of the role of explanation in the science classroom, the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS Lead States 2013) call for appropriately supporting students to learn science, argue from evidence, and provide explanations. Despite the ongoing emphasis on explanations in the science classroom, there…

Affeldt, Fiona; Eilks, Ingo – School Science Review, 2018
Social media are a highly visible factor in the daily lives of our students. Why should teachers not take advantage of this and develop teaching and learning materials that use the designs found in such media to contextualise science learning? This article suggests some ideas for creating lab instructions using social media design as an innovative…

Wiseman, Dawn – McGill Journal of Education, 2018
This paper focuses on how I have been attending to the TRC's [Truth and Reconciliation Commission's] calls to action within science teacher education. It draws on personal experiences, my dissertation, Canadian policy regarding Indigenous education, and academic literature to explore what the calls ask of teacher educators. Throughout, I consider…

Okeke, Iruka N.; Babalola, Chinedum P.; Byarugaba, Denis K.; Djimde, Abdoulaye; Osoniyi, Omolaja R. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2017
Many of Africa's challenges have scientific solutions, but there are fewer individuals engaged in scientific activity per capita on this continent than on any other. Only a handful of African scientists use their skills to capacity or are leaders in their disciplines. Underrepresentation of Africans in scientific practice, discourse, and decision…
