Fleer, Marilyn; Adams, Megan; Gunstone, Richard – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
As increasing numbers of families migrate from a range of countries into communities where Western science is viewed as valued curriculum content, a need for understanding the cultural nature of teaching Western science has become more urgent. The study reported in this paper sought to investigate pedagogical responses to everyday and scientific…

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…

Marker, Michael – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
While some Indigenous individuals have achieved "success" in STEM careers, persistent questions from many Indigenous scholars and communities about epistemic dominance at universities remain. Going beyond student achievement, this essay regards the centering of local Indigenous place based knowledge as a paradigm shifting move for…

Miller, Brant G.; Roehrig, Gillian – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
Opportunities for American Indian youth to meaningfully engage in school-based science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) experiences have historically been inadequate. As a consequence, American Indian students perform lower on standardized assessments of science education than their peers. In this article we describe the emergence…

Nyaema, Mary K. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
In writing this review, I draw on the experience of David Greenwood ("Cult Stud Sci Educ" 10:5-16, 2015) whose ethnographic study sheds light on his growth as a faculty member who has taught in various settings that are quite different from the culture that he grew up with. I extend his thoughts on ecological mindfulness to encompass a…

Hudley, Anne H. Charity; Mallinson, Christine – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
Professional development on issues of language and culture is often separate from professional development on issues related to STEM education, resulting in linguistic and cultural gaps in K-12 STEM pedagogy and practice. To address this issue, we have designed a model of professional development in which we work with educators to build cultural…
