Yaki, Akawo Angwal; Saat, Rohaida Mohd; Sathasivam, Renuka V.; Zulnaidi, Hutkemri – Malaysian Journal of Learning and Instruction, 2019
Purpose: The integrated science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education has been reported to improve students' science achievement. Nevertheless, few studies have focused on how this approach affected different ability groups. Lack of equity or the presence of achievement gap can be detrimental because they can reduce medium and…

Murphy-Judy, Kathryn – Learning Languages, 2017
The author argues for the inclusion of language in science, technology, engineering, mathematics (STEM) curriculum. She begins by examining the American Association of Arts and Sciences (AAAS) statistical report of U.S. language study. Language instruction in public and private schools has been declining throughout the years while pressures from…

Bello, Julia; Butler, Charles; Radavich, Rosanne; York, Alan; Oseto, Christian; Orvis, Kathryn; Pittendrigh, Barry R. – Science Education Review, 2007
Although members of the general public have often heard of the terms "genetic engineering" and, more recently, genomics, they typically have little to no knowledge about these topics, and in some cases are confused about basic concepts in these areas. There is currently a need for teaching models to explain concepts behind genomics.…

Ramsey, Paul – Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, 1972
Presented are issues related to genetic engineering. Increased knowledge of techniques to manipulate genes are apt to create confusion about moral values in relation to unborn babies and other living organisms on earth. Human beings may use this knowledge to disturb the balance maintained by nature. (PS)

Mansour, Nasser – European Educational Research Journal, 2008
This article focuses on some of the challenges of teaching science in a culture where science and religion sometimes appear to be or are set at odds with each other. Apparent conflicts between scholarly claims and religious claims are not limited to science, however--they occur in almost every subject. Many topics included in science education are…

Trexler, Cary J.; Meischen, Deanna – Journal of Agricultural Education, 2002
Interviews with eight preservice elementary teachers regarding benchmarks related to agricultural technology for food and fiber showed that those from rural areas had more complex understanding of the trade-offs in technology use; urban residents were more concerned with ethical dilemmas. Pesticide pollution was most understood, genetic…

Moores, Donald F. – American Annals of the Deaf, 2002
This article explores three controversial issues in the deaf community: genetic engineering, cochlear implants, and high stakes testing for students. It is argued that while some argue high stakes testing raises the expectations for students with deafness, it may leave many students with deafness without high school diplomas. (Contains…
