Garner, Joanna K.; Kaplan, Avi; Hathcock, Stephanie; Bergey, Bradley – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
Two common goals of science teacher professional development (PD) are increased content knowledge (CK) and improved readiness to teach through inquiry. However, PD assessment challenges arise when the context is structured around inquiry-based, participant-driven learning, and when the content crosses scientific disciplines. This study extended…

Lauterbach, Alexandra A.; Benedict, Amber E.; Yakut, Ayse D.; Garcias, Alejandra A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
Secondary students with learning disabilities are likely to learn science in an inclusive classroom. Their success often depends on teachers' ability to support their literacy needs. In this quasi-experimental study, we examine the effect of teacher' involvement in intensive professional development designed to deepen secondary science teachers'…

McCoy, Ayana; Jurist Levy, Abigail; Frumin, Kim; Lawrenz, Frances; Dede, Christopher; Eisenkraft, Arthur; Fischer, Christian; Fishman, Barry; Foster, Brandon – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
From 2012-2015, Advanced Placement (AP) science courses underwent a large-scale curricular reform to include more scientific inquiry and reasoning, reduce emphasis on broad content coverage, and focus on depth of understanding, with corresponding changes in high-stakes AP examinations. In this study, we explored how teachers prepared for and…

Yoon, Susan A.; Evans, Chad; Miller, Katherine; Anderson, Emma; Koehler, Jessica – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
The success of the "Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and similar reforms is contingent upon the quality of teaching, yet the shifts in teaching practice required are substantial. In this study, we propose and validate a model of adaptive expertise needed for teachers to successfully deliver NGSS-informed computer-supported complex…

Kawasaki, Jarod; Sandoval, William A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
We report on one teachers' efforts to re-design an entire instructional unit as a coherent storyline about forces and motion as a part of a multiyear professional development (PD) project around the NGSS. Designing coherent storylines demands that teachers create opportunities for students to meaningfully engage in science practices in order to…

Ogodo, Justina A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Many high school classrooms in the United States have physics teachers who are teaching the subject outside their certified content areas because of a severe shortage of physics teachers. There is a critical need to improve the knowledge base of these out-of-field teachers. This comparative case study examined the instructional practice of…

Nugent, Gwen; Kunz, Gina; Houston, James; Wu, ChaoRong; Patwardhan, Irina; Lee, SoonChun; DeChenne-Peters, Sue Ellen; Luo, LinLin – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
This study investigated the impact of a summer institute with follow-up coaching (treatment) versus no professional development (control) on middle and high school teacher and student science practice outcomes. Treatment teachers participated in a 2-week summer institute that used evidence-based professional development practices followed by…

Kolonich, Angela; Richmond, Gail; Krajcik, Joseph – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
In "A Framework for K-12 Science Education," the National Research Council frames inclusive science instruction as a collection of strategies for teachers to engage students. In this conceptual article, we reframe inclusive science instruction by examining the literature in science and multicultural education and describe five elements…

O' Dwyer, Anne – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
This article uses an existing evaluation framework to exemplify how an organic chemistry program for high school teachers facilitated their professional development. Chemistry teachers from 6 different high schools participated in the program. The professional development program was informed by a constructivist theoretical background in which…

Nehmeh, Ghada; Kelly, Angela M. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
High school physics teachers in the United States are often in a position of isolation, particularly in urban schools where access to physics is relatively limited. This study explored the issue of professional isolation and how it impacted 2 novice urban physics teachers. The a priori framework incorporated aspects of socialization and the…

Herrington, Deborah G.; Bancroft, Senetta F.; Edwards, Molly M.; Schairer, Caroline J. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2016
This qualitative study examined how and why research experiences for teachers (RETs) influenced middle and high school science teachers' beliefs, attitudes, and values about teaching science as inquiry. Changes teachers reported after participating in the RET ranged from modifying a few lessons (belief change) to a comprehensive revision of what…

Leite, Laurinda; Dourado, Luís; Morgado, Sofia – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2016
Between the 1980s and 2007, Portugal used to have one-stage (5-year period) initial teacher education (ITE) programs. In 2007 and consistent with the Bologna process guidelines, Portuguese teacher education moved toward a two-stage model, which includes a 3-year undergraduate program of subject matter that leads to a "licenciatura" (or…

Borgerding, Lisa A.; Klein, Vanessa A.; Ghosh, Rajlakshmi; Eibel, Albert – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2015
Evolution is fundamental to biology and scientific literacy, but teaching high school evolution is often difficult. Evolution teachers face several challenges including limited content knowledge, personal conflicts with evolution, expectations of resistance, concerns about students' conflicts with religion, and curricular constraints. Evolution…

Anderson, D.; Nashon, S.; Namazzi, E.; Okemwa, P.; Ombogo, P.; Ooko, S.; Beru, F. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2015
This study investigated Kenyan science teachers' pedagogical transformations, which manifested as they enacted and experienced a reformed contextualized science curriculum in which students' learning experiences were critical catalysts of teacher change. Twelve high school teachers voluntarily participated in the study and were interviewed about…
