Martin, Jenny – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2020
The aim of the study is to better understand teacher agency in the provision of science education to elementary school students. This article takes a specific focus on an elementary school teacher, who positioned herself as agentic in science. The study employs grammar of agency for the operationalisation of human agency in discursive…

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…

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…

Gul, Tugce; Demir, Kadir; Criswell, Brett – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Mentoring, as one of the formal teacher leadership roles, creates a space for teachers to display their leadership potential as it indirectly brings value to the school community (Ensher & Murphy, 2006). The purpose of this qualitative case study is to examine mentor teachers' perceptions whether they transfer their evolving mentoring skills…

McFadden, Justin – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
The current study, a uniquely challenging failed partnership, describes via an exploratory case study design the endeavors of a single middle school science teacher as he translated the reform messages of the Next Generation Science Standards into actual classroom practice. Data collected from both within and outside of the classroom revealed the…

Demir, Kadir; Qureshi, Azhar M. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
The purpose of this phenomenological case study was to study how secondary school science teachers describe their lived experiences of professional development (PD) in Punjab (Pakistan). The study included 15 secondary public school science teachers using purposive sampling from Punjab. Semistructured, in-depth phenomenological interviews were…

Boesdorfer, Sarah B.; Del Carlo, Dawn I.; Wayson, Jessica – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Recent adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) across the United States has prompted teacher educators to reexamine effective strategies to improve science teaching practices that align with the principles of the NGSS. Past research attempted to address changing teaching practices by examining the alignment--or lack thereof--with…

Pleasants, Jacob; Olson, Joanne K.; Tank, Kristina M. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Engineering design activities are a common way for teachers to incorporate engineering into their science classrooms, as called for by current science policy documents in the United States. However, little is known about how teachers prioritize different learning objectives during engineering design lessons. Understanding teachers' thinking on…

Harrell, Pamela Esprívalo; Thompson, Ruthanne; Brooks, Kanini – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
This 5-year study investigated transfer and retention behavior for 76 science and mathematics teachers in the United States. Counter to the research literature, a bivariate correlation analysis showed that poverty, minority composition, and passing state exams did not impact a decision to transfer schools after the 1st year of teaching, although…

Collins, Larry; Cavagnetto, Andy; Ferry, Nicole; Adesope, Olusola; Baldwin, Kathryn; Morrison, Judith; Premo, Joshua – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Reform documents like the Next Generation Science Standards call for the integration of science practices and content. One such framework that leverages science practices to support learning of content and practices is the Science Writing Heuristic (SWH). This study examined where 33 teachers focused their attention over the course of a 3-year…

Alt, Dorit – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
As explicit administrative expectations to use meaningful inquiry-based instructional activities and formative assessment tasks might influence teachers' classroom practices, this study assessed science teachers' use of contemporary educational activities and assessment tasks above and beyond their conceptions of traditional teaching and learning…

Zangori, Laura; Foulk, Jaimie; Sadler, Troy D.; Peel, Amanda – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
Engaging learners in modeling practices can promote substantial science learning, and anchoring science teaching in societal issues can promote student motivation to learn and make learning experiences more meaningful. However, elementary teachers have had few prior experiences with either modeling or socioscientific issues (SSI) and so are…
