Cooper, Grant; Berry, Amanda – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Adding to concerns about falling participation rates in science education, the profile of certain student groups who go on to study decreases, particularly as the year level increases. The aim of this paper is to examine if, and in what ways, demographic factors predict students' post-16 participation in biology, physics, chemistry and earth/space…

Skarstein, Tuula H.; Skarstein, Frode – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This study investigates early childhood (EC) student-teachers' species identification skills and their views on the importance of species knowledge. The study used a mixed methods approach, including a species identification test and a questionnaire, and involved 186 Norwegian EC student-teachers. Our results reveal that species knowledge of…

Heuckmann, Benedikt; Hammann, Marcus; Asshoff, Roman – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
This study investigated factors influencing teachers' intention and willingness to teach about cancer in the context of the theory of planned behaviour. Because teaching about cancer is mandatory in Germany, we compared n=355 teachers' intention to teach about cancer under mandatory conditions and their willingness to teach about cancer if they…

McLure, Felicity; Won, Mihye; Treagust, David F. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
Although the benefits of addressing cognitive, social and affective aspects of learning in order to support conceptual change have been discussed in the literature, there are few studies of such interventions in the normal classroom. This study used a multidimensional conceptual change framework in order to teach five biology and physics topics…

Meyerhöffer, Nina; Dreesmann, Daniel C. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The dominant role of English as the global language of science entails a requirement for science teachers to equip their non-native English-speaking students with receptive and productive language skills for communication in scientific contexts. Although science courses with English elements are part of some schools' bilingual programmes, they are…

Kang, Jingoo; Hense, Jonathan; Scheersoi, Annette; Keinonen, Tuula – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Gender disparities in STEM fields have been under extensive study, the focus of which has been on future career aspirations. However, the primary phases in gender differences are still ambiguous when examined from this perspective, possibly due to the fact that most of the studies have targeted samples of upper secondary school or college…

Postigo, Yolanda; López-Manjón, Asunción – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This paper analyses the extent to which textbook images are designed using the Instructional Criteria for Image Analysis (ICIA) model in textbooks. The ICIA proposed that learning through images involves interaction between the learner, the image, and the activities with images proposed to the student. Images from the main text and activity…

Vojír, Karel; Rusek, Martin – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The number of science education research papers has been rapidly rising in recent years. This number has been particularly influenced by researchers from non-English speaking countries who contribute to the field. With this number of papers, literature reviews gain in importance as they help researchers more easily orient themselves in problem…

Schizas, Dimitrios; Papatheodorou, Efimia; Stamou, George – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The present study explores how in-service secondary education Greek biology teachers understand aspects of the concept of ecosystem under the assumption that the ecosystem is an ill-defined concept. If it is to be considered a holistic entity, the ecosystem acquires its definitional features within the ecological field of systems ecology, which…

Aivelo, Tuomas; Uitto, Anna – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Science education strives to increase interest in science and facilitate active citizenship. Thus, the aspects of personal and societal relevance are increasingly emphasised in science curricula. Still, little is known about how teachers choose content for their teaching, although their choices translate curricula to teaching practice. We explored…

Kranzfelder, Petra; Lo, Alexander T.; Melloy, Marin P.; Walker, Lindsey E.; Warfa, Abdi-Rizak M. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Theoretically, organisational culture, instructor training, and learning space design influence how faculty teach STEM courses. Previous studies have used classroom observation protocols to characterise the range of teaching practices in mostly teacher-centered, traditional STEM classrooms. In this study, we examined the classroom behaviour of 13…

Gess-Newsome, Julie; Taylor, Joseph A.; Carlson, Janet; Gardner, April L.; Wilson, Christopher D.; Stuhlsatz, Molly A. M. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
In this exploratory study, we attempted to measure potential changes in teacher knowledge and practice as a result of an intervention, as well as trace such changes through a theoretical path of influence that could inform a model of teacher professional knowledge. We created an instrument to measure pedagogical content knowledge (PCK), studied…

Meyerhöffer, Nina; Dreesmann, Daniel C. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
English connects all areas of science around the world. Productive and receptive English-language skills are thus a crucial tool that schools must provide their students with in order to prepare them for higher education and professional life. The introduction of bilingual instruction of subject matter, often referred to as Content and Language…

Borgerding, Lisa A.; Kaya, F. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The U.S. Next Generation Science Standards treat biological adaptation as a disciplinary core idea, but various science educators recommend its introduction at different ages. The concept of biological adaptation elicits children's reasoning about organisms, their environments, and the relationship between organisms and their environments. The…

Düsing, Katharina; Asshoff, Roman; Hammann, Marcus – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between high school students' understanding of carbon compounds, including their transformations, and their ability to trace matter in the carbon cycle. The rationale of this study is based on the hypothesis that the students' lack of knowledge about carbon compounds and their…
