Esch, R. Keith; Burbacher, Emily; Dodrill, Eric; Fussell, Kristen DeVanna; Magdich, Mitchell; Norris, Heather; Midden, W. Robert – Horizon Research, Inc., 2020
Citizen science (CS) projects have become widespread in part because they expand the capacity of professional scientists, enabling research that would otherwise be impracticable or unaffordable. In addition to the research benefits, educators and scientists have seen educational value in CS because it can incorporate students into real-world…

Hayes, Meredith L.; Smith, P. Sean; Midden, W. Robert – Horizon Research, Inc., 2020
Science instruction reform efforts call for increased opportunities for students to engage with science content and practices. School-based citizen science (CS), when implemented well, addresses this call and provides a meaningful context for student learning. Despite CS projects' increasing role in formal science instruction, research on the…

Smith, P. Sean; Craven, Laura M. – Horizon Research, Inc., 2019
Relative to their middle and high school teacher counterparts, elementary science teachers are both uniquely situated and uniquely challenged for excellent science instruction. More than 90 percent of elementary teachers work in self-contained classrooms, meaning they have opportunities to connect their science instruction with English language…

During the recent Ebola outbreak of 2014-15, science teachers were fighting a different kind of epidemic--an epidemic of misinformation. Despite the low risk of spread here in the U.S., some school districts closed schools when they learned that staff, parents, or students had been on the same flight as one of the infected Dallas nurses. A poll by…
