Aminger, Walter; Hough, Sarah; Roberts, Sarah A.; Meier, Valerie; Spina, Alexis D.; Pajela, Hani; McLean, Mandy; Bianchini, Julie A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2021
We investigated six preservice secondary science teachers' implementation of reform-based science, in particular, their teaching of the "Next Generation Science Standards' (NGSS)" science and engineering practice of "using mathematics and computational thinking." A modified version of the Task Analysis Guide in Science served…

Dalvi, Tejaswini; Silva Mangiante, Elaine; Wendell, Kristen – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2021
The Next Generation Science Standards articulate a new vision for K-12 science learning that engages students in disciplinary practices to encourage deeper participation in and understandings of science and engineering. Teacher educators have a major responsibility in helping pre-service teachers (PSTs) develop knowledge of these practices and…

Smetana, Lara K. T.; Kushki, Ali – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2021
Research into the construct of science teacher identity has gained momentum over the past decade in an effort to achieve a more comprehensive, holistic understanding of teacher learning and development. As yet few studies have examined the unique identity challenges of science teacher career changers. A dialogical approach to the conceptualization…

Kloser, Matthew; Edelman, Amanda; Floyd, Catherine; Martínez, Jose Felipe; Stecher, Brian; Srinivasan, Jayashri; Lavin, Erin – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2021
Teachers continuously engage in the relational work of sensemaking with students, but they generally do so isolated from colleagues, making individual decisions about their classrooms. Professional learning communities (PLCs), provide opportunities for collaborative professional reflection and development among peers centered on the analysis of…

Capobianco, Brenda M.; Radloff, Jeffrey; Lehman, James D. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2021
As elementary schools across the U.S. continue to adopt new science education reform, attention is needed to understand how teachers make sense of using engineering design to teach science in their classroom settings. This study examined fourth-grade teachers' sense-making with learning to integrate engineering design-based science instruction and…

Aguirre-Muñoz, Zenaida; Yeter, Ibrahim H.; S. Loria Garro, Elias; Koca, Fatih – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2021
Despite the impetus from professional organizations for science and mathematics integration, few teacher training programs provide opportunities for teachers to develop the knowledge and skills in effective content integration. This study reports on the impact of a graduate course on in-service middle school, math, and science teachers'…

Brown, Bryan; Pérez, Greses; Ribay, Kathryn; Boda, Phillip A.; Wilsey, Matthew – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2021
Virtual reality (VR) in science classrooms has the potential to enhance students' learning by bridging the knowledge in the learners' communities with science instruction. When virtual environments reflect students' culture, it has the potential to influence their attitudes toward the value of science in their community. This qualitative study…

Friedrichsen, Patricia J.; Ke, Li; Sadler, Troy D.; Zangori, Laura – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2021
Secondary science teachers participated in a socio-scientific issues (SSI) professional development (PD) during which they co-designed SSI curriculum units. In this qualitative multiple case study, we followed a sub-set of eight teachers who enacted their SSI units in their classrooms and agreed to participate in the study. Clarke and…

Kaya, Fatma; Borgerding, Lisa A.; Ferdous, Tanzimul – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2021
The purpose of the study is to understand secondary science teachers' self-efficacy beliefs and implementation of inquiry to provide information for the improvement of science education in a Midwestern U.S. state that has not yet adopted NGSS. An explanatory sequential mixed methods design was selected to capture both a broad perspective of…

Kite, Vance; Park, Soonhye; McCance, Katherine; Seung, Elsun – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2021
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) emphasize engaging students in science practices through which students can develop content, procedural, and epistemic knowledge of science. To accomplish this goal, science teachers must embed science content in authentic science practice. Successfully integrating content and practice will require…

Wang, Jianlan; Wang, Yuanhua – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2021
Online teacher education is an important alternative in response to the problem of teacher shortage. The format of interaction is critical in leveraging social and intellectual connection between learners. Yet, few studies have examined this issue in online teacher preparation. In this study, we examined two commonly used interactional formats…

Lazarou, Demetris; Erduran, Sibel – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2021
The paper examines how science teachers' instructional adaptations to Toulmin's Argumentation Pattern (TAP), made during the first time the framework is introduced to students as a learning heuristic for structuring their arguments, could contribute to the way the quality of students' arguments is evaluated. We first depict these adaptations, that…

Khishfe, Rola – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2021
The study investigated how explicit instruction of argumentation-in the context of socioscientific issues (SSI)- and explicit instruction of NOS, compared with explicit instruction of argumentation only, can develop grade 10 students' argumentation skills and NOS conceptions. Participants were 36 grade 10 students enrolled in two sections that…
