Dague, Christopher T. – Social Education, 2020
With concerns over student motivation, it helps to look inward at how teachers' instructional methods and professional practices impact students. Keeping this context in mind, teachers should also recognize that they are teaching and learning in a new era--one where "read-the-chapter-and-answer-the-questionsin-the-back" pedagogies are no…

Nehring, Andreas – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2020
Many models in the field of epistemic cognition conceptualize students' views as being on a continuum between the poles of naïve and informed views. Against this background, the aim of the present study was to find out whether views on the nature of scientific inquiry (NOSI views) should be conceptualized and quantitatively assessed in a more…

Derry, Jan – Journal of Philosophy of Education, 2020
Cognitive load theory has challenged contemporary approaches to teaching by arguing that they are ineffective because of a neglect of the psychology underpinning learning and, specifically, the high demand placed on working memory. This paper challenges the presuppositions involved not only in arguments for guided instruction by those supporting…
