Ross, Annemarie; Yerrick, Randy K. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2015
Overall, science teaching at the university level has remained in a relatively static state. There is much research and debate among university faculty regarding the most effective methods of teaching science. But it remains largely rhetoric. The traditional lecture model in STEM higher education is limping along in its march toward inclusion and…

Isaacson, Mick D.; Michaels, Michelle – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2015
Ambiguity in speech is a possible barrier to the acquisition of knowledge for students who have print disabilities (such as blindness, visual impairments, and some specific learning disabilities) and rely on auditory input for learning. Chemistry appears to have considerable potential for being spoken ambiguously and may be a barrier to accessing…

Kahn, Sami; Feldman, Allan; Cooke, Michele L. – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2013
Deaf and hard of hearing (DHH) persons are underrepresented in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). One of the major barriers to STEM careers is DHH students' extremely low college graduation rates. While social and literacy barriers play a critical role in this phenomenon, student autonomy has also been cited as…

Pagano, Todd – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2013
At the risk of opening with a cliché statement- at the heart of the most effective mentor is a burning passion. The fuel for this passion is a desire to convince, not just try to, but actually convince your mentee that you care about their success (be it in the classroom, career, or personal life). I am guilty of believing in, and living by, this…

Taylor, Jonte C.; Therrien, William J.; Kaldenberg, Erica; Watt, Sarah; Chanlen, Niphon; Hand, Brian – Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities, 2012
Poor science achievement has been an educational issue for a number of years. Students with disabilities have traditionally fared worse. Research suggests that students with disabilities may respond better to instruction using an inquiry-based approach vs. traditional textbook instruction when measuring science achievement on standardized…
