Chen, Chen; Sonnert, Gerhard; Sadler, Philip M. – Science Education, 2020
To encourage the formation of science identity among girls, many scholars and practitioners have suggested to assign same-gender science teachers to students so that the teachers can serve as gender role models. However, direct evidence of any long-term effect of gender-matching is scarce. In a nationally representative survey of college students…

Leden, Lotta; Hansson, Lena; Ideland, Malin – Science Education, 2020
Nature of science (NOS) has increasingly been emphasized as an important element in science education. This paper engages in the question of how teachers negotiate different approaches to and contexts for NOS teaching. This exploratory study is part of a three-year longitudinal project where six in-service teachers developed and negotiated their…

Shea, Molly V.; Sandoval, Jose – Science Education, 2020
In this article we studied how community educators' designed for equity in an after school science program. Building from discussions of equity in out-of-school-time (OST) science, this case study offers insight into the role of pedagogy in organizing for dignity and belonging in an after school program. This case study focused on the practices of…

Judson, Eugene; Hayes, Kathryn N.; Glassmeyer, Kristi – Science Education, 2020
Although 20 states have adopted Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), 24 other states have developed their own K-12 science standards based on the same National Research Council (NRC) Framework. Understanding what influences content standards developers, realizing the supports and impediments to implementation they foresee, and knowing their…

Buxton, Cory A.; Caswell, Linda – Science Education, 2020
Using findings from a 4-year research and development effort, we propose an updated model of sheltered instruction for science classrooms that leverages the opportunities provided by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) to better support multilingual learners in middle and high school science. Using data from teacher implementation logs…

Plummer, Julia D.; Palma, Christopher; Rubin, KeriAnn; Flarend, Alice; Ong, Yann Shiou; Ghent, Chrysta; Gleason, Timothy; McDonald, Scott; Botzer, Brandon; Furman, Tanya – Science Education, 2020
We previously proposed a hypothetical learning progression around the disciplinary core idea of the Solar System and its formation as a first step in a research program to begin to fill this gap and address questions of student learning in this domain. In this study, we evaluate the effectiveness of two dimensions within the learning progression,…

Cherbow, Kevin; McKinley, Megan T.; McNeill, Katherine L.; Lowenhaupt, Rebecca – Science Education, 2020
Recent reforms in science education advocate for a vision of learning where students "figure out" science ideas through engagement in science practices. Consequently, there have been significant efforts to engage K-12 students in the science practices. However, less research attention has been given to understand how this…

Heredia, Sara C. – Science Education, 2020
This study explores the role of conceptual coherence in science teacher learning of science-specific formative assessment. Conceptual coherence refers to the alignment of ideas about teaching and learning and may be difficult with certain teaching practices, like formative assessment, that have a central role in accountability mechanisms in…

Hardy, Ian; Campbell, Todd – Science Education, 2020
Drawing upon interviews with key actors involved in the development of and support for the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) in the United States, this article shows how a potentially controversial reform came to be actively supported by senior educators. We utilize Kingdon's (2003, "Agendas, alternatives, and public policies,"…

Schenkel, Kathleen; Calabrese Barton, Angela – Science Education, 2020
Promoting critical science agency (CSA) may be one way to promote educational justice. CSA is using science with other powerful forms of knowledge to address issues of injustice. However, the process of enacting CSA is always embedded within a sociopolitical context, which positions some students with more power than others. Drawing upon a social…

Fine, Caitlin G. McC.; Furtak, Erin M. – Science Education, 2020
The "Framework for K-12 Science Education" (NRC; 2012) placed renewed emphasis on creating equitable science learning opportunities for all learners by engaging in three-dimensional learning experiences: disciplinary core ideas, crosscutting concepts, and science and engineering practices. Additionally, the "Framework" calls…

Bradbury, Leslie U.; Wilson, Rachel E. – Science Education, 2020
The purpose of this study is to challenge the prevailing negative narrative related to elementary science teaching by investigating the experiences of elementary teachers who identify as science teacher enthusiasts (STEs). Holland, Lachiotte, Skinner, and Cain (1998)'s conception of identity as an ongoing production or construction in a…

Olitsky, Stacy; Perfetti, Amy; Coughlin, Allyson – Science Education, 2020
In recent years, there have been programs aimed at increasing the number of science and math teachers in high-need areas by offering scholarships to candidates in exchange for their agreement to teach in a high-need school for a period of time. However, there has been concern that recipients might fulfill the terms of their agreement, then leave…

Shanahan, Marie-Claire; Bechtel, Robert – Science Education, 2020
Programs that bring teachers and scientists together have continued to achieve attention as important potential contributions to science education. Often, however, those programs place teachers in the position of learner or apprentice to the scientists. This study examines a teacher-scientist partnership program (two project sites, two teachers…
