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…

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.…

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…

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…

Lidar, Malena; Lundqvist, Eva; Ryder, Jim; Östman, Leif – Research in Science Education, 2020
In Sweden, a new curriculum and new methods of assessment (grading of students and national tests) in science education were introduced in grade 6 in 2012/2013. We have investigated what implications these reforms have for teachers' teaching and assessment practices in order to explore the question of how teachers transform their teaching habits…

Fettahlioglu, Pinar; Aydogdu, Mustafa – Research in Science Education, 2020
The purpose of this research is to investigate the effect of using argumentation and problem-based learning approaches on the development of environmentally responsible behaviours among pre-service science teachers. Experimental activities were implemented for 14 weeks for 52 class hours in an environmental education class within a science…

Muñoz-Franco, Granada; Criado, Ana María; García-Carmona, Antonio – Research in Science Education, 2020
This article presents the results of a qualitative study aimed at determining the effectiveness of the camera obscura as a didactic tool to understand image formation (i.e., how it is possible to see objects and how their image is formed on the retina, and what the image formed on the retina is like compared to the object observed) in a context of…

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…

Kruit, Patricia; Oostdam, Ron; van den Berg, Ed; Schuitema, Jaap – Research in Science Education, 2020
Information on students' development of science skills is essential for teachers to evaluate and improve their own education, as well as to provide adequate support and feedback to the learning process of individual students. The present study explores and discusses the use of performance assessments as a diagnostic tool for formative assessment…

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'…

Fernandes, Geraldo W. Rocha; Rodrigues, António M.; Ferreira, Carlos Alberto – Research in Science Education, 2020
This article aims to characterise the research on science teachers' professional development programs that support the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and the main trends concerning the theoretical frameworks (theoretical foundation, literature review or background) that underpin these studies. Through a systematic review…

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'…

Soysal, Y. – Research in Science Education, 2020
This study identified the accumulated distributions of the enacted discursive moves during classroom inquiry to demonstrate how a science teacher reacted to the existence of two mutually exclusive social languages: everyday social languages of the students vs. social languages of school science. The participants were a science teacher and 26…

Ferreira, Sílvia; Morais, Ana M. – Research in Science Education, 2020
The study investigates differentiated teaching practices of practical work in distinct social contexts and with different experienced teachers, at the level of the Portuguese high school science education. Four teaching practices were analysed in terms of the level of complexity of both scientific knowledge and cognitive skills and in terms of…
