Ekiz-Kiran, Betul; Boz, Yezdan – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The purpose of this study was to examine the interactions between in-service chemistry teachers' science teaching orientations and other components of their pedagogical content knowledge (PCK). Two experienced chemistry teachers participated in this study. Data were collected through interviews, classroom observations, and field notes as the…

Tekane, Rethabile; Pilcher, Lynne A.; Potgieter, Marietjie – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Although the implementation of blended learning in organic chemistry is rapidly growing, thus far, there are few studies published on the evaluation of supplemental types of blend in organic chemistry. This report covers a phenomenographic study that was designed to evaluate a supplemental type of blended learning approach implemented in a…

Vogelzang, Johannes; Admiraal, Wilfried F.; Van Driel, Jan H. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Scrum methodology is a novel framework for teaching intended to scaffold students' learning process when they work on complex, real-world tasks. It is originally a project management framework frequently used in business and industry to manage projects. Scrum methodology is increasingly used in educational contexts. Yet, it is also a rather…

Rüschenpöhler, Lilith; Markic, Silvija – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Research has shown that students' science capital has a large impact on their science aspirations and their development of science identities. In this study, we apply the notion of science capital to chemistry education in order to investigate how students make use of science capital in the field of chemistry. We define chemistry capital as a…

Yesiloglu, Sevinç Nihal; Köseoglu, Fitnat – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The main purpose of this study is to explore the epistemological problems underlying pre-service chemistry teachers' aims in using practical work, "i.e.," individual or small group object manipulation or observation, in school science. Twenty-two pre-service chemistry teachers participated in this study. Qualitative data collection tools…

Zowada, Christian; Frerichs, Nadja; Zuin, Vania Gomes; Eilks, Ingo – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The debate on the use of pesticides is very current in the public media when it comes to topics such as organic farming, bee mortality, and the use of glyphosate. The broad range of pesticide applications and their potential environmental impact makes pesticides an interesting topic for science education in general and for chemistry teaching in…

Kohen, Zehavit; Herscovitz, Orit; Dori, Yehudit Judy – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Facilitating students' chemical literacy is a focal point of current science education. This study examines views of chemists and chemistry teachers on chemical literacy and, more broadly, on scientific literacy of four kinds of stakeholders: scientists, teachers, STEM students, and the educated public. We explored the views of 347 participants,…

Gkitzia, Vasiliki; Salta, Katerina; Tzougraki, Chryssa – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Meaningful understanding of chemistry, among others, includes the ability of an individual to think simultaneously at macroscopic, submicroscopic and symbolic levels, and this presupposes the competence to translate between different types of chemical representations. In this study, we investigated 11th grade Greek students' and 3rd year…

Lau, Poh Nguk – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The rhetorical argument that laboratory courses are crucial for training skilled STEM practitioners is ill-evidenced in teaching practice. The arduous task of implementing instructor-led skill assessment in large-cohort courses and persistent student "disengagement" from its educative goals are some obstacles. This study emphasized the…

Wright, Lyniesha Chanell; Oliver-Hoyo, Maria Theresa – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The mental models students have after engaging in an activity designed to teach infrared (IR) spectroscopy without reliance on IR absorption tables, were characterized. Qualitative analysis of semi-structured interviews, through open coding, allowed the classification of the mental models as Molecules as Dynamic (MAD), Bonds as Dynamic (BAD),…

Dunlop, Lynda; Hodgson, Annie; Stubbs, Joshua Edward – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Much attention is given to student satisfaction in higher education, driven in the UK by accountability mechanisms such as the National Student Survey (NSS) and the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF). However satisfaction is both limited and limiting, depending on students' expectations and often associated with the avoidance of difficulty and…

Wei, Bing – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Using Revised Bloom's Taxonomy (RBT), this study has examined the intellectual demands of the Senior High School Chemistry Curriculum (SHSCC) in China from a socio-historical perspective. Document analysis was adopted as a research method to analyze knowledge types and cognitive processes, the two dimensions of the cognitive learning objectives in…

Rüschenpöhler, Lilith; Markic, Silvija – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
While science self-concepts of secondary school students have received considerable attention, several important aspects of chemistry self-concepts have not yet been understood: gender relations, the impact of students' cultural backgrounds, and the impact of chemistry self-concept on learning processes. In the present study, (i) we could confirm…

Hosbein, Kathryn N.; Barbera, Jack – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Identity has been theorized to aid in student persistence within STEM disciplines. In this study, science and chemistry identity were defined as being recognized as a science or chemistry person within the classroom. To generalize the effects that identity has on student persistence, a measurable construct must be defined, operationalized, and…

Dood, Amber J.; Dood, John C.; Cruz-Ramírez de Arellano, Daniel; Fields, Kimberly B.; Raker, Jeffrey R. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Assessments that aim to evaluate student understanding of chemical reactions and reaction mechanisms should ask students to construct written or oral explanations of mechanistic representations; students can reproduce pictorial mechanism representations with minimal understanding of the meaning of the representations. Grading such assessments is…
