Dewsbury, Bryan M. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2020
The retention of underrepresented students remains a significant challenge in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) disciplines. A broad range of studies across several disciplines have shown that conventional approaches to STEM instruction may have been unintentionally exclusive to students whose ethnicities are not traditionally…

Macalalag, Augusto Z.; Johnson, Joseph; Lai, Michelle – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2020
Socioscientific Issues (SSI) provide a strong framework for engaging students and teachers in meaningful and relevant scientific discourse in the development of functional scientific literacy. However, while most teachers recognize the value of introducing students to SSI, they themselves have limited knowledge of SSI and often lack the confidence…

Raveendran, Aswathy; Srivastava, Himanshu – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This article is a response to María del Mar Aragón, José Antonio Acevedo-Díaz and Antonio García-Carmona's article, which investigated pre-service teachers' understandings of epistemic and non-epistemic aspects of the nature of science (NOS) based on the historical case study of Ignaz Semmelweis and childbed fever. We situate the study in…

Aragón-Méndez, María del Mar; Acevedo-Díaz, José Antonio; García-Carmona, Antonio – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This article presents a qualitative study of the understanding of various epistemic and non-epistemic aspects of the nature of science (NOS), based on analysis of the historical case of Semmelweis and childbed fever. To this aim, an activity was designed which consisted of: (1) reading of a narrative of the case without instruction and discussion…

Goods, Amy R. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
In the Fall of 2017, I was introduced to V-Note, a software tool for analyzing audio and video in the classroom. I quickly adapted to using V-Note in research as it is easy to navigate, widely accessible, and most necessary features are included for free. Through this paper, I explore some possible applications of V-Note in education research. I…

Boda, Phillip A. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This study reports a collective case study of five science education graduate students to highlight the role of culture as an influential component within their conceptual understandings of urban science education. Conceptual change theory was used as a theoretical framework to explore the negotiations that five graduate students experienced…

Bazzul, Jesse; Tolbert, Sara – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This article attempts to add to the conversation on equity and science education by arguing that activist work necessitates turning away from conservative fields of research that only forward the agenda of national governments/patriarchy/white supremacy/capital, and turning toward larger sociopolitical movements and non-dominant forms of knowledge…

Fortney, Brian S.; Atwood, Erin D. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This manuscript focuses on the experiences of a science teacher educator's initial engagement in reconceptualization of the construct of equity in classrooms through the use of praxis. What might equity look like if conceptualized as a dynamic interaction between teacher and individual students? Utilizing a critically situated perspective, this…

Tesoriero, Gina – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
In this dialogue with Phillip A. Boda's "Conceptualizing the margins into science education praxis:disability as case in point," I would like to continue the conversation on an equity-focused graduate course meant to prepare pre-service educators to value and leverage diversity in the classroom. While Boda's analysis revealed that…

Wallace, Maria F. G. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Over the past decade, neoliberal practices for ensuring teacher effectiveness have shaped the landscape of education. In the midst of policy mandates for highly effective teachers, a biopolitical movement also undergirds the desire for a particular kind of ideal classroom. Grounded in traditions of scientism, beginning science teachers and their…

Martínez-Álvarez, Patricia – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Science education should help children acquire sophisticated understandings about science, how it is done, and how they can be scientists. Consequently, there is a need to explore how minoritized children's linguistic and cultural resources can be employed in the science classroom. This study examined how perceptions of science teaching and…
