Rundgren, Carl-Johan – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
In this forum article, I reflect on issues related to the implementation of inquiry-based science education (IBSE) in different countries.

Higgins, Marc – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
The purpose of this article is to explore what Michel Foucault refers to as "the" critical attitude and its relationship to science education, drawing from Foucault's (The politics of truth.

Duncan, Ravit Golan; Chinn, Clark A.; Barzilai, Sarit – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2018
Practices of generating, analyzing, and using evidence play a central role in the Framework for K-12 Science Education and the NGSS. However, the construct of evidence remains largely underspecified in these documents, providing insufficient guidance on how to engage students with the broad and complex nature of evidentiary reasoning. This creates…

Wallace, Maria F. G. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
Over the years neoliberal ideology and discourse have become intricately connected to making science people. Science educators work within a complicated paradox where they are obligated to meet neoliberal demands that reinscribe dominant, hegemonic assumptions for producing a scientific workforce. Whether it is the discourse of school science,…
