Masters, Heidi L.; Park Rogers, Meredith A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
Young children need opportunities to engage in the practice of constructing scientific explanations in order to develop their own understanding of science content. To engage in this scientific practice, teachers need to provide young children with explicit instruction and scaffolding. However, many classroom teachers' knowledge and beliefs for how…

Yang, Yang; Liu, Xiufeng; Gardella, Joseph A., Jr. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
Systematic studies on the effectiveness of in-service teacher professional development (PD) are important for science education research and practice. Previous studies have mostly focused on certain outcomes of PD, for example, the effectiveness of PD for improving teachers' knowledge or students' learning outcomes. This study, however, explores…

Borgerding, Lisa A.; Dagistan, Murat – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
The teaching of socioscientific issues (SSI) holds promise for advancing functional scientific literacy, promoting critical thinking, and providing an interesting context for learning required science content, but few teachers actually employ this teaching method in K-12 classrooms. One common reason cited by teachers is their concern about the…

Namdar, Bahadir; Kucuk, Mehmet – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
The purpose of this study was to investigate and better understand preservice science teachers' (PSTs') practices when critiquing and revising 5E (engage, explore, explain, elaborate, and evaluate) lesson plans. A single instrumental case study approach was used. The study was conducted at a public university in northeastern Turkey. The…

DeCoito, Isha; Myszkal, Philip – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
In this rapidly changing and technologically evolving world there is a need for skilled labor and professionals in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). This warrants concern, as the number of individuals graduating from and/or pursuing careers in STEM fields is seriously lagging. Students must be inspired, be…

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…

d'Alessio, Matthew A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2018
What teachers believe about their own effectiveness in the classroom influences what and how they teach, so teacher preparation programs should work to cultivate strong self-efficacy beliefs (SEBs) in future teachers. I designed a science content course for future elementary teachers around the simultaneous goals of teaching science content and…

Loper, Suzanna; McNeill, Katherine L.; González-Howard, María – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2017
In this article, we describe the development process for designing multimedia educative curriculum materials (MECMs) focused on supporting teachers in argumentation. We also describe results from a study with 46 teachers. We were interested in whether teachers' backgrounds or characteristics of the MECMs impacted MECM use. Overall, 89% of the…
