Yetter, Ibrahim H.; Livengood, Kimberly K.; Smith, Walter S. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2017
This study of science standards of all 50 states and 1958 American early adolescents asked whether there is agreement among states about a science topic, lunar phases, that appears in all recent national standards documents, is of cultural significance, and has been widely studied for misconceptions held by children and adults. Secondly, we asked…

Young, Jemimah L.; Feille, Kelly K.; Young, Jamaal R. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2017
Black girls represent a unique subpopulation of science learners. Black girls are unique because they consistently outperform Black boys in science. Despite this trend, Black girls often face dual marginalization in STEM classrooms and professions. Racial and gender marginalization can inhibit the success of Black girls in science if researchers,…
