Alcantara, Marlon C.; Braga, Marco; van den Heuvel, Charles – Science & Education, 2020
This paper discusses the potential of the creation and analysis of historical networks as didactic strategies in science education. To this end, we first argue the importance of combining critical approaches of the history of science with historical network research. This will be followed by a report of an empirical experiment in which the history…

Wiblom, Jonna; Andrée, Maria; Rundgren, Carl-Johan – Science & Education, 2020
This study focuses the emerging need for young people to critically respond to alarming messages in contemporary media highlighting the potential benefits or harms of certain foods. Besides being technical, advancements in the field of nutrition reported in media are often of tentative and speculative character, primarily selected and constructed…

He, Xinyu; Deng, Yang; Yu, Saisai; Wang, Houxiong – Science & Education, 2020
Scientific argumentation is a key practice in the construction, confirmation, and legalization of scientific knowledge. Although studies on scientific argumentation have been relatively plentiful, there are few quantitative studies on how students mentally perceive scientific argumentation, given that traditional quantitative tools such as Likert…

Milanovic, Vesna D.; Trivic, Dragica D. – Science & Education, 2020
The aim of this research was to establish the effects of argumentation and the quality of arguments related to history of the development of organic chemistry: (i) on the level of the pupils' knowledge about the composition, structure and general properties of organic compounds; and (ii) on their perception of the key aspect of NOS that scientific…

Emran, Ameer; Spektor-levy, Ornit; Paz Tal, Ofra; Ben Zvi Assaraf, Orit – Science & Education, 2020
A thorough understanding of the concept of the nature of science (NOS) is essential to the development of scientific literacy among students, as it provides the students with the tools and capacity to interpret the scientific knowledge they will encounter. This study focuses on how social factors may influence 1010 Israeli 9th grade students'…

Siani, Merav; Yarden, Anat – Science & Education, 2020
Due to the controversies surrounding the topic of evolution among religious and non-religious people alike, the treatment of biological evolution in education--both teaching and learning--is a potential minefield. The goal of this study was to probe the insights of Israeli stakeholders in education regarding the revision of the Israeli science and…

Najami, Naim; Hugerat, Muhamad; Kabya, Fattma; Hofstein, Avi – Science & Education, 2020
A study was conducted on how scientific laboratory lessons contribute to building arguments, both cognitively and socially. The population consisted of 12 second-year pre-service teachers at a college of education specializing in the teaching of biology and chemistry in middle school. The study examines the nature of the arguments students raise…

Burke, Lydia E. Carol-Ann; Wallace, John – Science & Education, 2020
Education systems in once-colonised locations cannot escape the abiding legacy of colonisation. Science, in particular, has played a prominent role in the reasonings and rationalisations of the colonial process. When considered in the context of an education system established by imperial powers, it is difficult to reconcile processes of…

Giri, Vetti; Paily, M. U. – Science & Education, 2020
The paper reports a study that focussed on investigating the effectiveness of Toulmin's argument pattern (TAP) within Think-Read-Group-Share-Reflect (TRGSR) scientific argumentation strategy on higher secondary students' critical thinking. A quasi-experimental, pretest-posttest-control group design was deployed. The subjects were 50 twelfth grade…

de Carvalho, Ítalo Nascimento; El-Hani, Charbel N.; Nunes-Neto, Nei – Science & Education, 2020
The excess of curriculum content is a well-known problem in high school biology. Some strategies to adjust the amount of content to the available classroom time have been proposed, but none has been widely accepted and applied. Furthermore, biology is frequently presented in high school not as an integrated science, but as a collection of…

Park, Wonyong; Yang, Seungran; Song, Jinwoong – Science & Education, 2019
The social reaction to the recent detection of the Higgs boson and gravitational waves provided evidence that public interest in modern physics has reached a high point. Although these modern physics topics are being introduced into the upper secondary physics curricula in a growing number of countries, their potential for teaching various aspects…

Ageitos, Noa; Puig, Blanca; Colucci-Gray, Laura – Science & Education, 2019
This article focuses on students' discursive moves and reasoning practices while engaged in a task that requires making explanatory links between sickle cell disease and malaria. Both diseases pertain to key areas of the biology curriculum, namely, genetic variability and natural selection, and are connected to the theory of evolution of living…

Rutt, Alexis; Mumba, Frackson – Science & Education, 2019
Despite its positive impact on students' understanding of the nature of science and science content knowledge, few secondary science teachers incorporate the history of science into their instruction. This article describes the effects of an online history of science course on preservice teachers' perceptions of and content and pedagogical…

Hardahl, Liv Kondrup; Wickman, Per-Olof; Caiman, Cecilia – Science & Education, 2019
This article deals with science content "in the making" and in particular the role of the body in producing scientific phenomena. While accounts of scientists' work have repeatedly demonstrated, how producing phenomena requires immense amounts of time and effort, involving tinkering and manual labor, this is a little empirically studied…

Herman, Benjamin C.; Owens, David C.; Oertli, Robert T.; Zangori, Laura A.; Newton, Mark H. – Science & Education, 2019
In addition to considering sociocultural, political, economic, and ethical factors (to name a few), effectively engaging socioscientific issues (SSI) requires that students understand and apply scientific explanations and the nature of science (NOS). Promoting such understandings can be achieved through immersing students in authentic real-world…
