Köksal, Ela Ayse – European Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Science is comprised of theory and practical work and to study either part is not enough to understand the whole. Practical work such as observation and fieldtrips should be used to develop students' inquiry skills as well as to support the theory. Teachers with high self-efficacy on fieldtrips will be more likely to use this technique.…

Harrison, Colin; Tanner, Kimberly D. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2018
Language matters. What we say can have profound effects on an individual's sense of belonging, self-efficacy, and science identity. One of the ways that these biases can manifest is in our language, through the use of microaggressions. Here, the term "microaggressions" is used to describe brief, sometimes subtle, everyday exchanges that…
