Nicholas, Celeste R. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
This article is the first to describe the discoursal construction of an adolescent community of practice (CoP) in a non-school setting. CoPs can provide optimal learning environments. The adolescent community centered around science journalism and positioned itself dichotomously in relationship to school literacy practices. The analysis focuses on…

Otoide, Lorraine – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
This article outlines a study of praxis. Inspired by my reading of Jacques Rancière's ("The ignorant schoolmaster: Five lessons in intellectual emancipation", trans. K. Ross, Stanford University Press, Stanford, 1991) influential text, "The Ignorant School Master", I explore the practical applications of his work for teaching…

Avraamidou, Lucy – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
Given reform recommendations emphasizing scientific inquiry and empirical evidence pointing to the difficulties beginning teachers face in enacting inquiry-based science, this study explores a well-started beginning elementary teacher's (Sofia) beliefs about inquiry-based science and related instructional practices. In order to explore Sofia's…

Salloum, Sara – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
This conceptual paper aims to characterize science teachers' practical knowledge utilizing a virtue-based theory of knowledge and the Aristotelian notion of phronesis/practical wisdom. The article argues that a greater understanding of the concept of phronesis and its relevance to science education would enrich our understandings of teacher…

Stapleton, Sarah Riggs – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
This forum response extends the argument made by Avery and Hains that oral traditions can be useful for including the cultures and contexts of rural areas within science instruction. To buttress the oral expressions presented in Avery and Hains, I compare oral expressions of a second rural area, 600 miles to the South, in Eastern North Carolina. I…

Zimmerman, Heather Toomey; Weible, Jennifer L. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
Guided by sociocultural perspectives on the importance of place as a resource for learning, we investigated 14- and 15-year old students' understandings of their community and water quality during a school-based watershed unit. Methods included a theory-driven thematic analysis of field notes and video transcripts from four biology classrooms, a…

Avery, Leanne M.; Hains, Bryan J. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
The overarching goal of this paper is to bring a diverse educational context--rural sayings and oral traditions situated in ecological habitats--to light and emphasize that they need to be taken into consideration regarding twenty-first century science education. The rural sayings or tenets presented here are also considered alternative ways of…

Meadows, Lee – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
This review essay affirms the work Mr. Red does with his students to support their learning about evolution and how his approach agrees with the realities of teaching evolution in the American South. It then shows how focusing on understanding, but not necessarily belief, adds to Mr. Red's apparent neutrality a complimentary pedagogical approach…

Borgerding, Lisa A. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
Although the concept of "rural" is difficult to define, rural science education provides the possibility for learning centered upon a strong connection to the local community. Rural American adolescents tend to be more religious than their urban counterparts and less accepting of evolution than their non-rural peers. Because the status…

Eppley, Karen – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
What part can science education play in the dismantling of obstacles to social justice in rural places? In this Forum contribution, I use "Learning in and about Rural Places: Connections and Tensions Between Students' Everyday Experiences and Environmental Quality Issues in their Community" (Zimmerman and Weible 2016) to explicitly…

Sipple, John W. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
In response to a paper calling for the re-engagement of agricultural education with the sciences and science education, this essay is supportive but argues to proceed with caution: one that at first does no harm. I offer a supplementary lens and story of change at Cornell University as a cautionary and motivational tale. I concur with the authors…

Fortunato, Michael W. P. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
This essay is a response to a paper by Avery and Hains that raises questions about the often unintended effects of knowledge standardization in an educational setting. While many K-12 schools are implementing common core standards, and many institutions of higher education are implementing their own standardized educational practices, the question…

Kingsolver, Ann – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
This article argues that there is no typical Appalachian experience or community. There is more cultural diversity and global interchange in this region of the U.S. than appears in popular representations of "isolated" Appalachians, which are ironic because of the region's having been so central to the global extractive economy for…

Hains, Bryan J.; Hansen, Gary L.; Hustedde, Ronald J. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
It can be argued that agricultural science is one of the original forms of science education. However, over the past century, agricultural science education has habitually been perceived as an educational venue meant solely for production agriculturalists. When examining modern agricultural education we find it to be a minority within the broader…
