Mejias, Sam; Thompson, Naomi; Sedas, Raul Mishael; Rosin, Mark; Soep, Elisabeth; Peppler, Kylie; Roche, Joseph; Wong, Jen; Hurley, Mairéad; Bell, Philip; Bevan, Bronwyn – Science Education, 2021
As an emerging field of theory, research, and practice, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) has received attention for its efforts to incorporate the arts into the rubric of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) learning. In particular, many informal educators have embraced it as an inclusive and…

Andrée, Maria; Hansson, Lena – Science Education, 2021
This study examines teachers' evaluations of teaching resources produced by industry to support science and technology teaching. The aim is to contribute to an understanding of how teachers negotiate the usability of industrial school initiatives for compulsory school science and technology. These evaluations are conceptualized in terms of teacher…

Fowler, Kelsie N. – Science Education, 2021
Educators involved in the improvement of science instruction need to explore how science education could better align with the needs and interests of specific communities, especially in areas of Central America where local knowledge has been expunged from schools. In this paper, I draw upon Culturally Sustaining and Revitalizing Pedagogies to…

You, Hye Sun; Park, Sunyoung; Delgado, Cesar – Science Education, 2021
The purpose of this study is to examine the characteristics of US schools associated with two measures of scientific literacy (content knowledge and "procedural and epistemic" knowledge) using the 2015 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) data. Because outcomes are nested within students, and students within schools, a…

White, Brittany A.; Miles, Joseph R.; Frantell, Keri A. – Science Education, 2021
Gender inequities in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields persist and calls have been made for continued efforts to challenge systemic sexism in STEM. In response to these calls, we examined the experiences of undergraduate and graduate STEM students who participated in an intergroup dialogue (IGD) focused on gender and sexism…

Cunningham, Christine M.; Kelly, Gregory J.; Meyer, Natacha – Science Education, 2021
In this position paper, we draw from previous research and theoretical developments in the field to propose a set of affordances of engineering with English learners (ELs). Students learning both the language of instruction (e.g., English) and academic subject matter (e.g., engineering, mathematics, science) face the challenge of making sense of…

Carman, Jennifer; Zint, Michaela; Burkett, Erin; Ibáñez, Inés – Science Education, 2021
As climate change becomes an increasingly important topic for science educators, it is critical to learn how teachers may be able to increase students' knowledge about it. We conducted two consecutive quasi-experimental studies that investigated the role of interest in predicting middle school students' knowledge gains from a unit about how…

Radišic, Jelena; Selleri, Patrizia; Carugati, Felice; Baucal, Aleksandar – Science Education, 2021
Seen as one of the essential domains for active citizenship, examining how students relate to science has become crucial. Based on a person-centered approach, this article investigates self-related dispositions and motivation in science using the 2015 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) data set. By employing a latent profile…

Levrini, Olivia; Tasquier, Giulia; Barelli, Eleonora; Laherto, Antti; Palmgren, Elina; Branchetti, Laura; Wilson, Caitlin – Science Education, 2021
This article takes its point of departure from the younger generation's problematic relationship with time and the future. A general sense of changeability and directionlessness in society compromises young people's confidence in themselves to make a difference as individuals in important global issues affecting their futures, such as climate…

Hayes, Kathryn N.; Inouye, Caron; Bae, Christine L.; Toven-Lindsey, Brit – Science Education, 2021
Although the use of active learning pedagogies in college science courses has been demonstrated to improve student learning and engagement, lecture-based methods still feature predominantly across university courses. Often lacking meaningful opportunities to learn about and test out new pedagogies, faculty have been slow to adopt and enact new…

Lowell, Benjamin R.; Cherbow, Kevin; McNeill, Katherine L. – Science Education, 2021
The adoption of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) requires many teachers to drastically change their classroom instruction. Curricular materials offer a tool to support this transition, but there are questions about the degree to which available curricula truly reflect the shifts required by the NGSS. This study proposes a framework of…

Raveendran, Aswathy – Science Education, 2021
The political nature of socioscientific controversies becomes starkly apparent in countries of the Global South where science and technology are embedded in societies characterized by pervasive structural inequalities which, in part, were created by the Global North. This article presents empirical work from the standpoint of a critical science…

Archer, Louise; Godec, Spela; Calabrese Barton, Angela; Dawson, Emily; Mau, Ada; Patel, Uma – Science Education, 2021
Supporting more equitable participation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) remains a key, persistent educational challenge. This paper employs a sociological Bourdieusian lens to explore how equitable youth outcomes might be supported through informal science learning (ISL). Drawing on multimodal, ethnographic data from…

Castro, Athena R.; Collins, Christopher S. – Science Education, 2021
Asian American women occupy a paradoxical space within the context of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields, simultaneously overrepresented as Asian Americans and underrepresented as women. For Asian American female doctoral students, the complex layering and weaving of these intersections involves the constant negotiation of…
