Boesdorfer, Sarah B.; Del Carlo, Dawn I.; Wayson, Jessica – Research in Science Education, 2022
Despite the promotion of data-driven or data-informed instructional practices in teacher education and professional development, past research indicates that teachers use a limited number of sources for student data to make short-term adjustments to their teaching in order to address deficiencies in student learning. Science teachers, with a more…

Cheng, Meng-Fei; Wu, Tsung-Yu; Lin, Shu-Fen – Research in Science Education, 2021
Understanding scientific models and practicing scientific modeling have been emphasized and advocated in science learning. Although teachers have been perceived as shaping their students' understanding of the nature of science, they have been recognized for their lack of understanding of scientific models. This study explores middle school science…

Soysal, Yilmaz; Yilmaz-Tuzun, Ozgul – Research in Science Education, 2021
This study investigated science classroom discourse in terms of the types of teacher discursive moves (TDMs) and the relationships between the types of TDMs and student-led cognitive contributions in different science concepts by considering the classroom context. An experienced seventh-grade science teacher and her 19 students were engaged in…

Özer, Ferah; Dogan, Nihal; Yalaki, Yalçin; Irez, Serhat; Çakmakci, Gültekin – Research in Science Education, 2021
The effective continuing professional development (CPD) programs primarily aim to have an impact on teachers' knowledge bases, beliefs, and views and their classroom practices, which rationally lead most of the researchers to investigate those changes on teachers primarily. Although neglected, the interrelationship between CPD programs and…

Mapplebeck, Andrea; Dunlop, Lynda – Research in Science Education, 2021
Feedback is an important practice in promoting learning. This study examines teachers' oral feedback practices, with an analysis grounded in students' perceptions of what helps them learn. Based on 38 hours of lesson observations, interviews with 10 teachers and 84 students, we identify how teachers conceptualise and practice oral feedback. Based…

Förtsch, Christian; Dorfner, Tobias; Baumgartner, Julia; Werner, Sonja; von Kotzebue, Lena; Neuhaus, Birgit J. – Research in Science Education, 2020
The German National Education Standards (NES) for biology were introduced in 2005. The content part of the NES emphasizes fostering conceptual knowledge. However, there are hardly any indications of what such an instructional implementation could look like. We introduce a theoretical framework of an instructional approach to foster students'…

Pringle, Rose M.; Mesa, Jennifer; Hayes, Lynda – Research in Science Education, 2020
Preparing teachers to teach science consistent with current reforms in science education is a daunting enterprise given a lack of high-quality science professional development (PD) adaptable across various contexts (Wilson 2013). This study examines the impact of a comprehensive professional development program on middle school teachers'…

Mazibe, Ernest N.; Coetzee, Corene; Gaigher, Estelle – Research in Science Education, 2020
This paper reports a case study of four grade 10 physical sciences teachers' PCK about graphs of motion. We used three data collection strategies, namely teachers' written accounts, captured by the content representation (CoRe) tool, interviews and classroom observations. We conceptualised the PCK displayed in the CoRe tool and the interviews as…
