Halawa, Suarman; Hsu, Ying-Shao; Zhang, Wen-Xin; Kuo, Yen-Ruey; Wu, Jen-Yi – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This study analyzed 2008-2017 articles in primary science education journals to explore the features and trends of teaching strategies for scientific practices. Five criteria were used to select the articles: (1) emphasizing inquiry teaching in either the theoretical framework or the findings section, (2) incorporating teaching strategies into…

Kaderavek, Joan N.; Paprzycki, Peter; Czerniak, Charlene M.; Hapgood, Susanna; Mentzer, Gale; Molitor, Scott; Mendenhall, Robert – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This study investigated if student placement in a primary grade 1-3 classroom with a teacher who had been trained in a U.S. science Framework-aligned [National Research Council. (2012). "A framework for K-12 science education: Practices, crosscutting concepts and core ideas." The National Academies Press] professional development science…

Balabanoff, Morgan E.; Al Fulaiti, Haiyan; Bhusal, Shikshya; Harrold, Archer; Moon, Alena C. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Light is used ubiquitously across science and engineering to explore, characterise, understand matter, and catalyse processes. Relative to its utility in science and engineering, very little research has been conducted on how students develop an understanding of light-matter interactions, especially at the quantum level, which is necessary to…

Concannon, James P.; Brown, Patrick L.; Lederman, Norman G.; Lederman, Judith S. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
The purposes of this study were to (1) investigate 127 high school students' views about scientific inquiry at different grade levels, and (2) to describe factors such as the teacher's views about scientific inquiry, his teaching, and his curriculum that facilitated or constrained students' views about scientific inquiry. The majority of students…

Aditomo, Anindito; Klieme, Eckhard – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Inquiry-based science instruction is widely advocated, but studies based on international large-scale assessments often show inquiry to be negatively associated with achievement. We re-examine this issue by examining whether the association between inquiry and learning depends upon the provision of teacher guidance. Participants were 151,721…

Stammes, Hanna; Henze, Ineke; Barendsen, Erik; de Vries, Marc – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Bringing design practices to chemistry education is gaining interest with recent science curriculum reforms emphasising design, and calls for integrated STEM education. Design is a central practice in the chemistry discipline, and could foster meaningful chemistry education. Although chemistry teachers are key in bringing design to chemistry…

Wei, Bing; Chen, Yue – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
The term 'experiment' is used in different ways to mean different things in school science. This study examines the meanings of 'experiment' and how they have changed in the intended chemistry curriculum (ICC) in China since the early 1950s. A mixed methodology was adopted to analyse the 11 ICC documents from a socio-historical perspective. The…

Fung, Dennis – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This paper reports the findings of a quasi-experimental study that investigated the impacts of effective group work on Hong Kong science classrooms. One hundred and fifty-two Secondary 2 (or Grade 8) students from two schools participated in a teaching intervention (comprising 16 lessons) in which they studied the topic 'Making Use of Electricity'…

Park, Wonyong; Yang, Seungran; Song, Jinwoong – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Research on nature of science (NOS) has confirmed that students' understanding of NOS is best achieved by explicitly considering NOS a cognitive learning expectation and providing opportunities to reflect on it. However, little has been discussed on how to design and use tasks enhancing students' NOS understanding. In an attempt to fill this gap,…

Giamellaro, Michael; O'Connell, Kari; Knapp, Melinda – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This study describes outcomes from a place-based, teacher-scientist partnership intended to support teacher use of authentic data for science and math instruction. Teachers worked with scientists in the field to practice collection and analysis of authentic data. This case study investigated how narrative structure and contextualisation were…

Isik-Ercan, Zeynep – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This qualitative case study documents pedagogical changes from a traditional teacher-centred instruction to an inquiry-based integrated literacy/science instruction in an urban second grade classroom. Social constructivist learning, where teachers and learners engage in discussion, argumentation, shared collective discourse, guided practice and…

Remmen, Kari Beate; Frøyland, Merethe – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Students struggle with observing scientifically and connecting observations to scientific theory. This study investigates how students actually use observation in rock classification -- a classical practical task in science education. To describe the level of students' use of observation, data was collected by videotaping 19 small student groups…

Oon, P. -T.; Cheng, M. M. W.; Wong, A. S. L. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Understanding secondary student attitudes towards science (SAS) is important if we are to increase the number and diversity of students who pursue STEM fields and address the gender imbalance in STEM careers. Existing studies that measured SAS tended to directly translate an ordinal scale (e.g., from 'strongly agree' to 'strongly disagree') into a…

Wang, Jianlan – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Despite the importance of scientific argumentation, it rarely occurs in science classrooms. Researchers have designed argumentation interventions to bridge this gap, but those efforts have limited impacts on transforming existing classroom practices. Argumentation is a linguistically social interaction. It is necessary to go beyond understanding…

Vilia, Paulo; Candeias, Adelinda A. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
The importance of attitudes and other variables of the affective domain in education is acknowledged for a long time. In this study, we used an attitude questionnaire to survey 498 Portuguese 9th-grade students to determine the predictive ability of the attitudes towards the discipline of Physics-chemistry on school achievement. Possible gender…
