Tan, Edna – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2013
Teacher-researcher narrative accounts are essential and insightful for the science education field, yet they are few and far-between. In this forum, I engage in dialogue with Nicole Grimes's auto-ethnographic narrative on the affordances her femme-Caribbean identity allowed for some students to engage more deeply in science. While I agree with and…

My aim in this…

Up to now, explanatory math texts have been used almost exclusively in an uncritical way. In…
