Bowers, Nicole; Merritt, Eileen; Rimm-Kaufman, Sara – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
Across the country, states are adopting and implementing either Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) or new state standards inspired by NGSS. Educators and researchers play a key role in the reform process as we design professional development (PD) and curriculum to support teachers in transitioning to NGSS. In this time of transition, close…

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'…

Min, Mina; Akerson, Valarie; Aydeniz, Fetiye – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
Teaching effectiveness is increasingly highlighted as an important quality in teachers, and teacher education programs have used various approaches to improve preservice teachers' teaching effectiveness. However, how preservice teachers develop their beliefs about effective science teaching and how they enact them in their field experiences have…

Berland, Leema K.; Russ, Rosemary S.; West, Cori P. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
Meaningfully engaging students in the NGSS scientific practices requires that student ideas become the driving force of classroom activity. However, in order for student ideas to take on this new role, teachers must engage in responsive teaching in which they elicit, notice, and respond to the substance of student thinking. In this work, we…

Sjöberg, Marlene; Nyberg, Eva – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
Professional knowledge for science teaching develops over time and interplays with professional experiences in field. In the present study, we explore student teachers' reflective conversation upon teaching experiences, with pedagogical content knowledge, PCK, as an analytical lens. The empirical data is based on nine meetings, with groups of 3-6…

Carrier, Sarah J.; Grifenhagen, Jill F. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
The academic language of science includes science content words and words that describe the practices of scientists. The present study examined science vocabulary knowledge and science vocabulary instruction practices of pre-service teachers enrolled in a primary science methods course. This exploratory mixed-methods study presents quantitative…

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…

Areepattamannil, Shaljan; Cairns, Dean; Dickson, Martina – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
Teacher-directed and inquiry-based science instructional practices have been shown to influence students' performance on science assessments. However, only a small body of research has examined the associations of teacher-directed and inquiry-based science instructional practices with science-related dispositions among adolescent students using…

Castronova, Marisa; Chernobilsky, Ellina – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
This paper reports the qualitative analysis of science teachers' pedagogical reflections while attending institutes focused on the "Next Generation Science Standards" (NGSS). The researchers collected reflection slips from 165 science teachers (K-12) across 14 different NGSS institutes. To analyze the data, researchers classified…

Masters, Heidi – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
Within two sections of science methods for elementary and middle-school teachers, an embedded, multi-case study design was employed to explore whether teaching rehearsals would better prepare preservice teachers (PSTs) to implement explanation-driven science instruction. A teaching rehearsal allows PSTs to practice teaching a segment of their…

Benedict-Chambers, Amanda; Fick, Sarah J.; Arias, Anna Maria – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
This study investigated how practice-based science methods courses, at three different institutions, provided opportunities for preservice teachers (PSTs) to develop new ways of enacting and noticing ambitious teaching through analyzing rehearsal lessons. We examined 194 written rehearsal reflections for similarities and differences in the types…

Kawasaki, Jarod; Sandoval, William A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
We report on seven secondary science teachers' initial efforts to understand and enact NGSS-aligned teaching. After interviewing and observing them over the course of the school year, we found that teachers revised their lessons to include instructional strategies that aimed to meet the demands of the NGSS. Yet at times, the purpose for which…

Pleasants, Jacob; Olson, Joanne K.; De La Cruz, Iliana – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
With the growing adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards across the United States, elementary teachers are being called upon to incorporate engineering into their science instruction, creating a need for ways to help elementary teachers better understand what engineering is and how to accurately communicate it to students. The present…
