Wieselmann, Jeanna R.; Keratithamkul, Khomson; Dare, Emily A.; Ring-Whalen, Elizabeth A.; Roehrig, Gillian H. – Research in Science Education, 2021
Integrated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education is becoming increasingly common in K-12 classrooms, and small group activities are ubiquitous to STEM instruction. This article includes both theoretical and practical descriptions of a microethnographic approach to critical multimodal discourse analysis that we used to…

Convertini, Josephine – Research in Science Education, 2021
The implementation of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) at school is one of the challenges of education in the twenty-first century, especially concerning the development of critical thinking during argumentative interactions. In this paper, I refer to an interdisciplinary approach with the aim to analyze the implicit…

Colley, Carolyn; Windschitl, Mark – Research in Science Education, 2021
In science classrooms, the epistemic practices of explanation building and argumentation often extend over multiple episodes of talk during a single lesson or across several lessons. Analyzing this kind of discourse requires a way to identify patterns that emerge over time to better understand student participation and how teachers support…

Maeng, Seungho – Research in Science Education, 2021
This study provides two exemplars of how grammatical analysis of language use in elementary science classroom discourse enhances the explication of students' epistemic process in the language use in that discourse. Methodologically, both practical epistemology analysis (PEA) and discourse register analysis (DRA) from systemic functional…

Franco, Luiz Gustavo; Munford, Danusa – Research in Science Education, 2021
One of the challenges for analysing science classroom discourse is a better understanding of intercontextual relationships in the learning process. In this paper, we used orientations from ethnography in education to organise and propose an analytical metaphor called the hourglass approach. It involves three phases of analysis that correspond to…

Ludwig, Tobias; Priemer, Burkhard; Lewalter, Doris – Research in Science Education, 2021
Justifications play a central role in argumentation, which is a core topic in school science education. This paper contributes to this field of research by presenting two studies in which we assess students' justifications for supporting or rejecting hypotheses in the physics lab based on self-collected, anomalous experimental data, which are…

France, Ann – Research in Science Education, 2021
The importance of using dialogue as a pedagogical tool to enhance student learning in science has been widely recognised in research literature. Effective classroom dialogue is dependent upon teaching which successfully engages students in critical thinking and deep learning, requiring many teachers to think and work differently in science…

McHugh, Luisa; Kelly, Angela M.; Fisher, Jacqueline Horan; Burghardt, M. David – Research in Science Education, 2021
This study evaluated the effectiveness of the Mathematics Infusion into Science Project (MiSP), which integrated science and mathematics in an engaging middle school science curriculum that fostered improvements in science content knowledge, higher-level problem solving, and affective domains related to mathematics. The project design was based…

García-Carmona, Antonio – Research in Science Education, 2021
This qualitative study analyses how effective an activity based on the critical and reflexive reading of the historical case of Rosalind Franklin and the elucidation of the molecular structure of DNA can be for learning about the nature of science (NOS). The aspects of NOS addressed are the plurality of methods in scientific research, research…

Es, Hüseyin; Öztürk, Nurhan – Research in Science Education, 2021
The current study aimed to make students discover the multidimensional structure of Socio-scientific Issues (SSI) using the SEE-STEP model. Nine-step module has been designed to help students' discover the aspects of the SSI in the implementation process of the research. This research was based on qualitative methodology in determining the study…

Eckes, Alexander; Großmann, Nadine; Wilde, Matthias – Research in Science Education, 2020
The transition from elementary school to the upper grades can lead to ambiguous feelings toward the new, male teachers. This study investigated whether collaborative animal care in biology lessons affects students' feelings of relatedness toward their biology teachers positively during the first year after the school transition. Four hundred…

Metin, Duygu; Cakiroglu, Jale; Leblebicioglu, Gulsen – Research in Science Education, 2020
Practices such as astrology or crystal healing can be defined as pseudoscience. Against pseudoscience, one of the major responsibilities of science education must be to develop science-literate individuals who are able to understand what science is, how science is undertaken, how scientific knowledge is constructed, and how it is justified, then…

Lee, Yeung Chung; Lee, Carole Kwan-Ping; Lam, Irene Chung-Man; Kwok, Ping Wai; So, Winnie Wing-Mui – Research in Science Education, 2020
International studies of science education, such as the Trends in Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), have revealed considerable national disparities in students' achievements in science education. The results have prompted many nations to compare their science education systems and practices to those of others, to gain insights for…

Haeusler, Carole; Donovan, Jennifer – Research in Science Education, 2020
Solutions to global issues demand the involvement of scientists, yet concern exists about retention rates in science as students pass through school into University. Young children are curious about science, yet are considered incapable of grappling with abstract and microscopic concepts such as atoms, sub-atomic particles, molecules and DNA.…

Marco-Bujosa, Lisa; Levy, Abigail Jurist; McNeill, Katherine – Research in Science Education, 2020
Teachers are central to providing high-quality science learning experiences called for in recent reform efforts, as their understanding of science impacts both what they teach and how they teach it. Yet, most elementary teachers do not enter the profession with a particular interest in science or expertise in science teaching. Research also…
