Struyf, Annemie; De Loof, Haydée; Boeve-de Pauw, Jelle; Van Petegem, Peter – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
In this paper, we explore how students' engagement varies in different STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) learning environments. More specifically, we focus on the significance of a learning environment applying an integrated STEM (iSTEM) approach and the significance of STEM learning environments' student-centredness. Moreover,…

Ryu, Minjung – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Bilingual and multilingual speakers mix two or more languages for communication, gaining information and sense-making in varieties of contexts. How do bilinguals mix languages and what does the mixing afford for their learning and participation? This study examines these questions, focusing on Korean-English bilingual youths in a community-based…

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…

Deng, Yang; Kelly, Gregory J.; Deng, Shili – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Scientific writing is related to the practice of communicating scientific knowledge. This study treats scientific writing as a social practice, taking as its premise the notion that participating in related activities such as reading, peer evaluation, and discussion would positively affect the competence of students' scientific writing, by…

Jin, Hui; van Rijn, Peter; Moore, John C.; Bauer, Malcolm I.; Pressler, Yamina; Yestness, Nissa – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This article provides a validation framework for research on the development and use of science Learning Progressions (LPs). The framework describes how evidence from various sources can be used to establish an interpretive argument and a validity argument at five stages of LP research--development, scoring, generalisation, extrapolation, and use.…

Wei, Bing; Chen, Nan – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
In this study, a sociocultural perspective was adopted to understand the interplay between identity and agency in a context of science education reform in China. The manifestation of agency and the interaction between identity and agency were examined with two beginning science teachers teaching with practical work in high school. As part of this…

Peasland, Emma L.; Henri, Dominic C.; Morrell, Lesley J.; Scott, Graham W. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Employability is a key issue for students and Higher Education Institutions and a key component of employability is possessing the skills a role requires. In the environmental sciences, fieldwork provides an opportunity for students to develop employability-enhancing technical and transferable skills. However, students can have difficulty…

Busch, K.C.; Ardoin, Nicole; Gruehn, Daniel; Stevenson, Kathryn – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This study explores the influence of cognitive (knowledge and certainty) and psychosocial (social norms and efficacy) variables on youth's climate change-related behaviour, with the aim to create an empirically supported theoretical model for youth's choice to take action to mitigate climate change. This survey-based research was conducted with…

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…

Chachashvili-Bolotin, Svetlana; Lissitsa, Sabina; Milner-Bolotin, Marina – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
This large-scale study (N=173,636) examines between-group differences in Israeli high school STEM enrolment and average grades between five groups of Israeli-born Jews. Four of them comprise second-generation immigrant students with high-skilled parents, from North America (NA), South America (SA), France, and the Former Soviet Union (FSU). 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…

Wiyarsi, Antuni; Çalik, Muammer – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The purpose of this study was to develop a valid and reliable scale measuring the Indonesians' scientific habits of mind (SHOM) levels via the SSIs in context. The sample of the study consisted of 658 Indonesian people (aged 18-68 years; 385 females and 273 males; mean age: 35.5) randomly drawn from 3 districts of Special Region of Yogyakarta,…

Simon, Molly N.; Prather, Edward E.; Buxner, Sanlyn R.; Impey, Chris D. – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
The discovery and characterisation of planets orbiting distant stars has shed light on the origin of our own Solar System. It is important that college-level introductory astronomy students have a general understanding of the planet formation process before they are able to draw parallels between extrasolar systems and our own Solar System. In…

Covert, Hannah; Ilunga Tshiswaka, Daudet; Ramkissoon, Ishara; Sisskin, Enid; Lichtveld, Maureen; Wickliffe, Jeffrey – International Journal of Science Education, 2019
Motivation to learn science plays an important role in the persistence, achievement, and career aspirations of students studying science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Several studies have focused on how supplemental summer programmes build science motivation in undergraduate STEM students, but few studies have focused on how such…
