Krange, Ingeborg; Silseth, Kenneth; Pierroux, Palmyre – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2020
Studies of education practices in science centers have found variation in how conceptual learning is supported, or scaffolded, on school field trips. This paper investigates the implications of scaffolding variations for how students make sense of a game-based exhibit that was designed to trigger interest and develop knowledge of scientific…

Hsu, Pei-Ling – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2020
Research is urgently needed to learn how to improve the emotional climate of science learning by ameliorating excesses of negative emotions, which may lead to students dropping out of school, teachers burning out, and health problems for both groups. This is especially true when teachers and students are situated in highly challenging environments…

Karlsson, Annika; Nygård Larsson, Pia; Jakobsson, Anders – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2020
This article aims to explore and clarify how students' use of first and second languages in a translanguaging science classroom (TSC) may affect the continuity of learning in science. In a TSC, participants can use all available language resources, in all meaning-making situations. An ethnographic data collection and research design is used to…

Fakoyede, Sina J.; Otulaja, Femi S. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2020
This paper explores the ways learners respond to and express themselves while interacting with cultural artifacts or cultural realia, "beads and beadwork," used to mediate the teaching and learning of life science concepts in a science classroom. South African policies, enacted in the National Curriculum Statement (NCS) and the…

Lodge, Wilton George – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2020
The global dominance of the English language has led to intense debates with the emergence of studies of English as a lingua franca. These debates can be positioned along a continuum stretching from those who see the spread of English as a force of good representing progress and those who see it as a destructive force of globalisation. Between…

Anthony-Stevens, Vanessa; Matsaw, Sammy L., Jr. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2020
This study, undertaken in the Northwest USA, explores how graduate students in an interdisciplinary social-ecological systems research course engaged with concepts of epistemic difference and Indigenous knowledge as part of a required module titled "Ways of Knowing" to engage social and ecological change in climate science. We describe…

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…

Licona, Peter R.; Kelly, Gregory J. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2020
In this article, we investigate translanguaging in an English/Spanish dual language, urban, middle school science classroom as the teacher and students employ a scientific argumentation framework to address biodiversity socioscientific issues. Drawing from theories of sociocultural psychology and sociolinguistics, we considered how engaging in…

Swanson, Lauren; Kang, Emily J. S.; Bauler, Clara – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2020
Adopting a sociocultural perspective, we construct a case study exploring how a middle school bilingual science teacher reflected and acted when engaged in dialogue, co-teaching, and a newly designed unit on plate tectonics. Sources of data include video of classroom interaction and audio recordings of daily debriefs between the bilingual science…

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…

Singh, Gurinder; Shaikh, Rafikh; Haydock, Karen – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Our investigation focusses on a group of eleven lower-middle-class students from classrooms in which the teachers did most of the talking and students rarely asked any questions. We have examined whether spontaneous discussions among the students in a less structured setting would include questioning, and what kinds of questions they might ask.…
