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…

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…

Carrier, Sarah J.; Whitehead, Ashley N.; Minogue, James; Corsi-Kimble, Becca S. – Research in Science Education, 2020
Theories of how people learn and how science connects to students' lives provide frameworks for exploring the development of teachers' visions of effective science teaching. These frameworks can inform elementary teacher preparation programs about how to communicate theory-based practices of effective science instruction to support pre-service…

Izci, Kemal; Muslu, Nilay; Burcks, Shannon M.; Siegel, Marcelle A.; Formative Evaluation; testing; Testing – Research in Science Education, 2020
New notions of science teaching and learning provide challenges for designing and using classroom assessment. Existing assessments are not effective in assessing and supporting desired science learning because they are not designed to capture and aid such learning (NRC 2014; Pellegrino 2013). In addition, it is important to evaluate effectiveness…

Anderson Quarderer, Nathan; McDermott, Mark A. – Research in Science Education, 2020
Developing the future scientists of tomorrow requires that the science teachers of today be well versed in the languages and practices of science. This may require in-service teachers to shift the way they think about learning and the role they play in their classrooms. One approach to helping teachers gain a sense of comfort with current science…

Scherb, Christian Alexander; Nitz, Sandra – Research in Science Education, 2020
Several studies have shown that "learner-generated external visual representations" (LGVRs) play a vital role for learning scientific concepts and processes. However, we know little about teachers' reasoning as to why and how to implement LGVR activities in their teaching. Thus, the purpose of our study is to determine why teachers let…

Moote, Julie – Research in Science Education, 2019
This study investigates the impact of participation in the CREativity in Science and Technology (CREST) programme on student self-regulated processes and related motivations. The CREST scheme, a student-run science project managed by the British Science Association, is currently being implemented in schools across the UK to increase student…

Kumarassamy, Jayanthy; Koh, Caroline – Research in Science Education, 2019
Much has been written and debated on the importance of including moral, character or values education in school curricula. In line with this, teachers' views with regard to values education have often been sought. However, a search into the literature on values in science education has revealed little on this domain. In an attempt to close this…

Moodley, Kimera; Gaigher, Estelle – Research in Science Education, 2019
An exploratory case study involving six grade 9 science teachers was undertaken to probe how teachers' understanding of learners' misconceptions relate to their perceptions about teaching simple circuits. The participants' understanding of documented misconceptions in electricity were explored by means of a questionnaire, while their perceptions…

Martin, Anita; Park, Soonhye; Hand, Brian – Research in Science Education, 2019
This qualitative case study examined the process of change in an experienced elementary teacher's belief structure during implementation of an inquiry-based science program. Difficulties generally associated with ascertaining beliefs were minimized by using Leatham's ("Journal of Mathematics Teacher Education," "9," 91-102…

Spektor-Levy, Ornit; Yifrach, Merav – Research in Science Education, 2019
This paper describes the unique challenges that students with learning disabilities (LD) experience in science studies and addresses the question of the extent to which science teachers are willing and prepared to teach in inclusive classrooms. We employed the theory of planned behavior (TPB), according to which behavioral intentions are a…

Fitzgerald, Michael; Danaia, Lena; McKinnon, David H. – Research in Science Education, 2019
In recent years, calls for the adoption of inquiry-based pedagogies in the science classroom have formed a part of the recommendations for large-scale high school science reforms. However, these pedagogies have been problematic to implement at scale. This research explores the perceptions of 34 positively inclined early-adopter teachers in…

Leden, Lotta; Hansson, Lena – Research in Science Education, 2019
The inclusion of "nature of science" (NOS) in science education has for a long time been regarded as crucial. There is, however, a lack of research on appropriate NOS aspects for different educational levels. An even more neglected area of research is that focusing on teachers' perspectives on NOS teaching at different levels. The aim of…

Raven, Sara; Whitman, Gretchen M. – Research in Science Education, 2019
Science learning is inextricably tied to two aspects of students' lives: literacy and culture. While English Learners (ELs) who speak a non-English native language are typically the focus in this line of scholarly inquiry, deaf and hard-of-hearing (DHH) students occupy a distinct space in this conversation. For DHH learners, literacy levels can be…

Meskill, Carla; Oliveira, Alandeom W. – Research in Science Education, 2019
Learners of English as a new language and the teachers who find these young people in their classrooms face many challenges. For secondary science educators, this is often rooted in a general lack of professional development models for the design and implementation of science/language integrated instruction. To address this issue, the present…
