Oztas, Fulya; Oztas, Haydar – Journal of Education and Practice, 2016
The previous researches results seem to suggest that some aspects of learning of diffusion and osmosis concepts such as membranes, kinetic energy of matter, and elements of the particulate and random nature of matter could lead to misconceptions. The concept of diffusion is very common in science instruction, and understanding the concept is an…

Stroupe, David; Gotwals, Amelia Wenk – Journal of Teacher Education, 2018
Teacher educators have a challenging task of designing opportunities for preservice teachers (PSTs) to learn ambitious science teaching (AST). However, with limited time in methods courses and the complexities of AST, opportunities for PSTs to "try out" ambitious instruction are difficult to construct and analyze. To address this…

Hartwell, Matthew; Kaplan, Avi – Journal of Experimental Education, 2018
This paper presents findings from a two-phase mixed methods study investigating the phenomenological structure of self-relevance among ninth-grade junior high school biology students (Phase 1: N = 118; Phase 2: N = 139). We begin with a phenomenological multidimensional definition of self-relevance as comprising three dimensions: the academic…
