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…

Erduran, Sibel; Guilfoyle, Liam; Park, Wonyong – Research in Science Education, 2022
Argumentation, the justification of claims with reasons and/or evidence, has emerged as a significant educational goal in science education in recent years. It has also been noted as an important pedagogical approach in numerous school subjects. Yet, there is limited understanding of how teachers' views of argumentation and its teaching compare in…

Owens, David C.; Sadler, Troy D.; Friedrichsen, Patricia – Research in Science Education, 2021
The identification of high-leverage teaching practices that can be improved through targeted practice should contribute to the enhancement of teachers' facilitation of instruction and improve student learning outcomes. Researchers have begun to identify subject-specific teaching practices that are expected to enhance science teaching specifically.…

Kayima, Festo; Mkimbili, Selina Thomas – Research in Science Education, 2021
In this paper, chemistry teachers' reactions/behavior or actions following students' undesired, unexpected or incorrect responses/answers to the posed teacher oral questions are reported. This study which was carried out in Tanzania in Iringa Municipality involved three chemistry teachers teaching in three different secondary schools. Actual…

Nielsen, Sanne Schnell; Nielsen, Jan Alexis – Research in Science Education, 2021
A new science curriculum, with a significant emphasis on modelling, was recently adopted in Danish lower secondary education. The theoretical intentions behind the new curriculum include substantial changes to how teachers should address models and modelling in their practice. The purpose of this study is to analyse the alignment between the…

Vossen, T. E.; Henze, I.; Rippe, R. C. A.; Van Driel, J. H.; De Vries, M. J. – Research in Science Education, 2021
Research and design activities are important focus points in international policies for secondary Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education. It is up to school teachers to implement and supervise these activities in the STEM classroom. However, not much is known about the attitudes teachers hold towards supervising research…

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'…

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…

Lidar, Malena; Danielsson, Anna T.; Berge, Maria – Research in Science Education, 2020
The content that is privileged in teaching has consequences for what the students are given the opportunity to learn and can thus be regarded as an aspect of power. We analyse power aspects in the teaching of physics by identifying actions that guide or direct other people's actions, and then analyse similarities and differences in different…

Buxton, Cory; Harman, Ruth; Cardozo-Gaibisso, Lourdes; Jiang, Lei; Bui, Khanh; Allexsaht-Snider, Martha – Research in Science Education, 2019
We report on the use of bilingual constructed response science assessments in the context of a research and development partnership with secondary school science teachers. Given the power that assessments have in today's education systems, our project provided a series of workshops for teachers where they explored students' emergent…

Román, Diego; del Rosal, Karla; Basaraba, Deni – Research in Science Education, 2019
Informal formative assessments (IFAs) are classroom interactions teachers use to gather information about their students' learning, interpret it, and act on this information to achieve academic goals. One of the responses science teachers can enact as the result of IFA is constructing explanations to clarify science concepts to their students.…

Tolbert, Sara; Knox, Corey; Salinas, Ivan – Research in Science Education, 2019
In this article, we turn our attention to context-based approaches to science instruction. We studied the effects of changes to a set of secondary science teacher education programs, all of which were redesigned with attention to the Secondary Science Teaching with English Language and Literacy Acquisition (SSTELLA) instructional framework, a…

Ng, Wan; Fergusson, Jennifer – Research in Science Education, 2019
The issue of student disengagement in school science continues to pose a threat to lifting the participation rates of students undertaking STEM courses and careers in Australia and other countries globally. In Australia, several science initiatives to reverse the problem have been funded over the last two decades. Many of these initiatives involve…

Herman, Benjamin C .; Olson, Joanne K.; Clough, Michael P. – Research in Science Education, 2019
This study reports the participation of 13 secondary science teachers in informal support networks and how that participation was associated with their nature of science (NOS) teaching practices 2 to 5 years after having graduated from the same science teacher education program. The nine teachers who participated in informal support networks…

Guo, Jian-Peng; Yang, Ling-Yan; Ding, Yi – Research in Science Education, 2019
Researchers have consistently demonstrated that studying multiple examples is more effective than studying one example because comparing multiple examples can promote schema construction and facilitate discernment of critical aspects. Teachers, however, are usually absent from those self-led text-based studies. In this experimental study, a…
