Lee, Okhee; Llosa, Lorena; Grapin, Scott; Haas, Alison; Goggins, Marcelle – Science Education, 2019
The purpose of this study is to present a conceptual framework that integrates science and language learning for all students, including English learners (ELs). This framework is grounded in the mutually supportive nature of science instructional shifts, spurred by "A Framework for K-12 Science Education" (National Research Council,…

Odden, Tor Ole B.; Russ, Rosemary S. – Science Education, 2019
In recent years, science education researchers have increasingly studied the ways in which students "make sense" of science. However, although researchers might all agree intuitively on what it looks like, the literature on sensemaking is theoretically fragmented. In this paper, we address this fragmentation by proposing a coherent…

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…

Furtak, Erin Marie – Science Education, 2017
Wide-scale adoption of the "Next Generation Science Standards" has raised new challenges for classroom teachers as they learn not only how to engage students in this new vision of science learning, but also how to assess students' engagement in that learning. This paper introduces a virtual special issue of "Science Education"…

Osborne, Jonathan; Patterson, Alexis – Science Education, 2012
In "For Whom Is Argument and Explanation a Necessary Distinction? A Response to Osborne and Patterson," Berland and McNeill seek to argue that there is an overlap between these two discourse acts such that, in the welter of classroom life, it is difficult to make the distinction. Indeed, in their article Jonathan Osborne and Alexis Patterson did…

Lehrer, Richard; Schauble, Leona – Science Education, 2012
Although the core work of science is oriented toward constructing, revising, applying, and defending models of the natural world, models appear only rarely in school science, and usually only as illustrations, rather than theory building tools. We describe the rationale and structure for a learning progression to understand the development of…

Feinstein, Noah – Science Education, 2011
There is little evidence that the prevailing strategies of science education have an impact on the use and interpretation of science in daily life. Most science educators and science education researchers nonetheless believe that science education is intrinsically useful for students who do not go on to scientific or technical careers. This essay…

Kuhn, Deanna – Science Education, 2010
The concept of science as argument, and the view that engaging in scientific argumentation should play a key role in science education, has become widely endorsed. The case is made here that this objective will be enhanced by broad understanding of the nature of argument skills and their directions and patterns of development. A line of research…

Judson, Eugene – Science Education, 2010
The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act requires states to measure the adequate yearly progress (AYP) of each public school and local educational agency (LEA) and to hold schools and LEAs accountable for failing to make AYP. Although it is required that science be assessed in at least three grades, the achievement results from science examinations are…

Bang, Megan; Medin, Douglas – Science Education, 2010
Although there has been considerable focus on the underrepresentation of minorities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines and the need for science instruction that fosters diversity, much of the associated effort has focused on the goal of diversity and tended to assume that science and science learning are…

Dos Santos, Wildson L. P. – Science Education, 2009
In this article, a rationale for advancing a new idea in humanistic science education is developed from a Paulo Freire perspective. Paulo Freire developed a well-known approach to adult literacy based on his humanistic ideas through the dialogical process. From Freirean educational principles, the idea unfolds that a Freirean humanistic science…

Pramling, Niklas – Science Education, 2009
This article is about the role of metaphor in scientific knowledge formation and reasoning. These issues are studied by means of an example of the theory of evolution through natural selection. The premise is that the theory of evolution contains a set of problems regarding metaphor. A second premise is that these problems have to be handled in…

Fensham, Peter J. – Science Education, 2009
Policy has been a much neglected area for research in science education. In their neglect of policy studies, researchers have maintained an ongoing naivete about the politics of science education. In doing so, they often overestimate the implications of their research findings about practice and ignore the interplay between the stakeholders beyond…

Weinstein, Matthew – Science Education, 2008
This paper examines the framings that the fields of the social studies of science and science education use for each other. It is shown that the social studies of science frames science education as passive and timeless. Science education frames science studies as a set of representations to better capture how science works. The paper then…

Parsons, Eileen R. Carlton – Science Education, 2008
This essay addresses a call for research involving African Americans to interpret data from the historical, contemporary, and cultural experiences of African Americans. The essay argues for a science education research approach that explicitly considers the positionality of African Americans in the United States. This positionality involves the…
