Newall, Emma – School Science Review, 2017
Evolution has been positioned at the centre of conflict between scientific and religious explanations of the workings of the world. However, little research has examined other possible reasons for some people rejecting scientific explanations. The author's research indicates that for some people, irrespective of faith, the ideas associated with…

Czocher, Jennifer A.; Hardison, Hamilton – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2019
Formulating a mathematical model is a dynamic process, and attending to changes in students' models as they engage in modeling tasks is critical for informing pedagogical interventions. In this report, we coordinate constructs from literature on mathematical modeling, quantitative and covariational reasoning, and semiotics to characterize changes…

Rosenhouse, Jason – Science & Education, 2017
The argument that the second law of thermodynamics contradicts the theory of evolution has recently been revived by anti-evolutionists. In its basic form, the argument asserts that whereas evolution implies that there has been an increase in biological complexity over time, the second law, a fundamental principle of physics, shows this to be…

We investigate the evolution of thought using the method of historical reconstruction, the theory of the cultural and historical determinism of psychological development, data on the relationship between morphological studies, modern findings about child development, and the scientific understanding of neural morphogenesis. We argue for…

Oliveira, Alandeom W.; Cook, Kristin – Research in Science Education, 2017
Despite growing recognition of the importance of visual representations to science education, previous research has given attention mostly to verbal modalities of evolution instruction. Visual aspects of classroom learning of evolution are yet to be systematically examined by science educators. The present study attends to this issue by exploring…

Frankenhuis, Willem E. – Developmental Psychology, 2019
I argue that emotion research needs formal (mathematical) theory to address two central questions. How does evolution shape mechanisms of emotion development across generations, depending on environmental conditions? How do these mechanisms generate emotions, based on lifetime experience and current context? Formal modeling enables researchers to…

The federal government has collected data from colleges and universities for more than a century.

Machin, Denry – Journal of Research in International Education, 2019
Whereas growth in international school numbers is widely reported, less attention has been given to how these schools have developed as organisations. Drawing on organisational life-cycle models (Greiner, 1972) and the work of DiMaggio and Powell (1983), this paper addresses that gap. As international schools grow individually, and as the field…

Reiss, Michael J. – Ethics and Education, 2019
Evolution is often seen as a site of contestation within the school curriculum. The topic of evolution is therefore often considered to be 'controversial'. I first examine what is meant by 'controversial' and conclude that while, in an everyday sense, the topic of evolution can indeed be considered to be controversial, this term can mislead. A…

Carroll, Kevin S.; de Vries, Alissia; Pagán Muñoz, Anyeliz – Critical Inquiry in Language Studies, 2021
As the de facto language of science, English proficiency often serves as a gatekeeper for aspiring medical students in Puerto Rico because they encounter English-language instruction, textbooks, and high-stakes standardized tests throughout their studies. Employing ethnographic research methods, this case study documents the language practices in…
