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…

Wray, Kraig A.; Richmond, Gail – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
The national shortage of science teachers and the substantial teacher turnover rate in high-poverty schools are outcomes of multiple issues. Using a framework built on 2 constructs--teacher agency (typically examined in experienced rather than beginning teachers) and professional identity--we investigate how agency and identity interact and might…

McHugh, Luisa; Kelly, Angela M.; Burghardt, M. David – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
Contemporary research has suggested that for students to compete globally, pedagogy must shift to emphasize the infusion of mathematics into science instruction to strengthen understanding. Innovative professional development programs are necessary to achieve this goal, particularly with respect to teaching graphing skills in the context of…

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…

Kademian, Sylvie M.; Davis, Elizabeth A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
New reforms in science education emphasize facilitating all students' sense making of the big ideas and crosscutting concepts in science along with engagement in science practices. Supporting this learning requires complex, ambitious teaching that is uncommon in U.S. classrooms. Thus, novice teachers will need considerable support in learning how…

Wenner, Julianne A.; Kittleson, Julie – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
Recommendations for science education, including elementary education, highlight instructional practices such as using discussion to promote deep understandings of science. A task facing science teacher educators is to craft instruction to support teacher candidates (TCs) to develop skills that will encourage such practices in classrooms. In 2011,…

Hanuscin, Deborah L.; Cisterna, Dante; Lipsitz, Kelsey – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
The Next Generation Science Standards call for changes in not only what is taught in elementary science but also how students engage in the learning experience to develop understanding of core disciplinary ideas. In this study we examined 5th-grade teachers' pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) for 1 particular core idea: the small particle model…

Chen, Jessica L.; Mensah, Felicia Moore – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
Supporting elementary preservice teachers' development of a science teacher identity provides a way to address challenges of low self-efficacy, self-confidence, and pedagogical content knowledge in science. Meaningful teaching experiences in student teaching placements and field-based science methods courses provide opportunities for preservice…

Palmberg, Irmeli; Hermans, Mikaela; Jeronen, Eila; Kärkkäinen, Sirpa; Persson, Christel; Yli-Panula, Eija – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
People's knowledge about nature, their interest in nature, their nature experiences, and their values and emotions regarding nature are factors that promote people's positive views on environmental issues and sustainability. Knowing the variation and patterns in teachers' and student teachers' views is an essential step in considering the ways in…

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…

Subramaniam, Karthigeyan; Asim, Sumreen; Lee, Eun Young; Koo, Yilmin – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to explore student teachers' images of science instruction in informal settings and how these images explicate their field trip pedagogy. "Field trips" refers to planned, structured, and adaptable ways of learning science outside the science classroom that are connected to the school science curriculum.…

Cian, Heidi; Marshall, Jeff; Qian, Meihua – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
Educational research continues to reiterate the need for inquiry-based instruction in secondary science. However, the patterns of how teachers implement inquiry-based pedagogy have not been thoroughly studied--particularly from a quantitative perspective. This study is based on data from 422 observations of 50 teachers collected during a 5-year…

Titu, Preethi; Ring-Whalen, Elizabeth A.; Brown, Julie C.; Roehrig, Gillian H. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
In recent decades, schools in most Western countries, including the United States, have become increasingly culturally diverse. As global migration rises, cultural diversity in schools will continue to grow. Though an expansive research base has shown that teacher attitudes play an important role in student performance, comparatively little is…

Feille, Kelly K.; Nettles, Jenesta R.; Weinburgh, Molly H. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
Although much research has examined the professional development (PD) of science teachers, questions remain about what aspects of PD contribute to teacher change. It is important to continue to examine the nuanced ways in which PD can support in-service science teachers as they seek to hone their craft. This study used silhouettes constructed from…
