Crujeiras-Pérez, B.; Jiménez-Aleixandre, M. P. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
This paper examines the process of high school students' planning investigations in the chemistry laboratory across two consecutive academic years in terms of their actions and their progress. The context is a set of five inquiry-based laboratory tasks in which participants (9th and 10th graders, 14-15 and 15-16 years of age) are required to plan…

Gabby, Shwartz; Avargil, Shirly; Herscovitz, Orit; Dori, Yehudit Judy – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
An ongoing process of reforming chemical education in middle and high schools in our country introduced the technology-enhanced learning environment (TELE) to chemistry classes. Teachers are encouraged to integrate technology into pedagogical practices in meaningful ways to promote 21st century skills; however, this effort is often hindered by…

Abels, Simone – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2016
Recent educational research emphasises the importance of analysing talk and gestures to come to an understanding about students' conceptual learning. Gestures are perceived as complex hand movements being equivalent to other language modes. They can convey experienceable as well as abstract concepts. As well as technical language, gestures…

Papageorgiou, George; Markos, Angelos; Zarkadis, Nikolaos – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2016
The current study aims to investigate students' representations of the atomic structure in a number of student cohorts with specific characteristics concerning age, grade, class curriculum and some individual differences, such as formal reasoning and field dependence/independence. Two specific task contexts, which were designed in accordance with…

Hoe, Kai Yee; Subramaniam, R. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2016
This study presents an analysis of alternative conceptions (ACs) on acid--base chemistry harbored by grade 9 students in Singapore. The ACs were obtained by the development and validation of a 4-tier diagnostic instrument. It is among the very few studies in the science education literature that have focused on examining results based also on…

Sasson, Irit; Dori, Yehudit Judy – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2015
In an era in which information is rapidly growing and changing, it is very important to teach with the goal of students' engagement in life-long learning in mind. This can partially be achieved by developing transferable thinking skills. In our previous paper--Part I, we conducted a review of the transfer literature and suggested a three-attribute…

Aydin, Sevgi; Tortumlu, Selma – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2015
To attain the goal of scientific literacy, the nature of science (NOS) is one of the areas that should be addressed. In many countries, the training of scientifically literate generations is a fundamental aim of science education, as a result there is an emphasis on NOS in science curricula and curricular materials. Textbooks prepared to teach…

Joki, Jarkko; Lavonen, Jari; Juuti, Kalle; Aksela, Maija – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2015
The aim of this study was to design a novel and holistic way to teach chemical bonding at the middle school level according to research on the teaching and learning of bonding. A further aim was to investigate high achieving middle school students' conceptual structures concerning chemical bonding by using a systemic perspective. Students in one…

Al-Balushi, Sulaiman M.; Al-Harthy, Ibrahim S. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2015
The aim of the current study was to investigate students' mind wandering while reading different types of textual narrations (macroscopic and submicroscopic) in chemistry. Another goal was to determine the relationship between mind wandering and students' reading comprehension. The participants were 65 female ninth grade students in Oman. Using a…

Kapici, Hasan Özgür; Savasci-Açikalin, Funda – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2015
Textbooks are one of the primary teaching tools frequently used in schools and most teachers use them in their classrooms (Sanchez and Valcarcel, 1999). Since there are a lot of abstract concepts in science education, images in science textbooks play a vital role in the learning process (Kenan et al., 2011). Concretization of abstract concepts may…

Özalp, Dilek; Kahveci, Ajda – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2015
Student conceptions related with matter and the particulate nature of matter (PNM), are vital for advanced understanding in chemistry, and have been a research area of significant attention. Lacking in the literature are studies addressing chemical misconceptions from an ontological point of view. The purpose of the current study was to develop a…

Chen, Bo; Wei, Bing – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2015
This paper aimed to explore how pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) of teachers influenced their adaptations of the curriculum materials of the new senior secondary chemistry curriculum, a standards-based science curriculum, in China. This study was based on the premise that the interaction of the teacher with the curriculum materials determines…

Eskandar, Fathi-Azar; Bayrami, Mansor; Vahedi, Shahram; Ansar, Vahideh Abdollahi Adli – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2013
We investigated the effect of instructional analogies in interaction with logical thinking ability on achievement and attitude towards chemistry. The participants were 147 female students from 6 8th grade classes in three public junior high schools selected by using a random multistage sampling method from five education districts in Tabriz, a…

Stamovlasis, Dimitrios; Tsitsipis, Georgios; Papageorgiou, George – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2012
In this study, structural equation modeling (SEM) is applied to an instrument assessing students' understanding of the particulate nature of matter, the collective properties and physical changes, such as melting, evaporation, boiling and condensation. The structural relationships among particular groups of items were investigated. In addition,…

Christian, Brittany N.; Yezierski, Ellen J. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2012
Teachers tend to instruct topically, which requires the student to use multiple and interconnected concepts to succeed in each instructional unit. Therefore, it is beneficial to combine research on related concepts to form topic driven instruments to better assist teachers in assessing and instructing students. Chemical and physical change as a…
