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…

Criswell, Brett A.; Rushton, Gregory T.; Shah, Lisa – Research in Science Education, 2021
The importance of how classroom discourse can be used to support science learning has gained national attention with respect to both science teaching and research across K12 and higher education. In this review article, we examine a commonly referenced set of nine frameworks for use in "science" classrooms. Specifically, we examine the…

Martin, Jenny; Xu, Lihua; Seah, Lay Hoon – Research in Science Education, 2021
This article provides rich insights into the process of data generation for discourse analysis from three separate studies of the video recordings of a single science classroom in action. The central claim is that multimodal transcription can contribute to developments in discourse theory. A three-stage reflective heuristic is developed and used…

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…

Barreto, Lucas Passos; Rodrigues, Adriana Araújo Dutra; de Oliveira, Giordanna Camilla Bié; de Almeida, Laila Thayanne Gomes; Felix, Matheus Augusto Campelo; Silva, Penha de Souza; Quadros, Ana Luiza; Macedo, Andrea Mara; Mortimer, Eduardo Fleury – Research in Science Education, 2021
This research draws on Legitimation Code Theory (LCT) to understand the epistemic dimension of the higher education classroom discourse of a professor who is well evaluated by his students. In expository science classroom discourse, concepts are loaded with different meanings, a process that is called "condensation of meanings" in LCT,…

Knain, Erik; Fredlund, Tobias; Furberg, Anniken – Research in Science Education, 2021
The meaning-making practices of science are multimodal and include representational forms such as spoken and written language, diagrams, graphs, equations, and images. Science learning proceeds through an ever-increasing grasp of such resources. This study aims at providing insight into how a combination of Interaction Analysis (IA) and social…

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…

Matuk, Camillia; Hurwich, Talia; Spiegel, Amy; Diamond, Judy – Research in Science Education, 2021
Equitable learning opportunities are critical to the goals of science education. However, major curriculum standards are vague on how to achieve equity goals, and educators must often develop their own resources and strategies to achieve equity goals. This study examines how educators used a comic book series designed to interest youth in virology…

Kiroglu, Kasim; Türk, Cumhur; Erdogan, Ibrahim – Research in Science Education, 2021
The aim of this study is to comparatively investigate the effects of hands-on models (HMs) and computer simulations (CSs) on teaching the phases and eclipses of the Moon. In this study, two different HMs were developed, and three different CSs were used. The research work group consisted of 100 pre-service science teachers. A quasi-experimental…

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…

Hung, Jung-Yi; Chang, Hsin-Yi; Hung, Jeng-Fung – Research in Science Education, 2021
Science teachers use a large number of visual representations and models in science classes to guide students to understand complex phenomena and to learn to conduct scientific inquiry. Fluent formation and use of visual representation involves metavisualization, which is a process related to metacognition and visualization. However, what kinds of…

Hutner, Todd L.; Petrosino, Anthony J.; Salinas, Cinthia – Research in Science Education, 2021
One broad research question researchers continue to pursue is: to what degree does science teacher education influence the thinking of preservice science teachers? In other words, how has the thinking of preservice science teachers changed during the course of teacher education? Different models of cognition suggest different foci for this…

Ma, Hongming – Research in Science Education, 2021
Science education researchers have found that instructional design focusing more on learners' affective needs can be powerful in nurturing effective and exciting science learning. This paper reports a qualitative study exploring how learners' situational affective experiences are influenced by the interplay of their habitual affective attributes…

Yerdelen-Damar, Sevda; Eryilmaz, Ali – Research in Science Education, 2021
This study investigated the effect of the metacognitive instruction in which students' epistemic cognitions were explicitly addressed, on tenth-grade students' conceptual understandings regarding force and motion. The participants of the study included 107 (49 female, 58 male) tenth-grade students at two public high schools. A quasi-experimental…

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.…
