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…

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…

Menon, Deepika; Chandrasekhar, Meera; Kosztin, Dorina; Steinhoff, Douglas C. – Science Education, 2020
The growing popularity of mobile technologies in educational settings, from grade schools through college, has prompted science educators to prepare preservice teachers to successfully integrate technology into science teaching. This mixed-methods study explores the effectiveness of a mobile technology-based physics curriculum, Exploring Physics,…

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…

Dini, Vesal; Sevian, Hannah; Caushi, Klaudja; Orduña Picón, Raúl – Science Education, 2020
Teachers' use of formative assessment (FA) has been shown to improve student outcomes; however, teachers enact FA in many ways. We examined classroom videos of nine experienced teachers of elementary, middle, and high school science, aiming to create a model of FA enactment that is useful to teachers. We developed a coding scheme through a…

Witherspoon, Eben B.; Schunn, Christian D. – Science Education, 2020
While gender parity has been achieved in overall science degree earning, large gaps still exist within many science disciplines. Further, studies addressing gender inequity in science often ignore a large source of undergraduate science degree earners: those who enroll in science courses intending to pursue careers in health or medicine. This…

Maeng, Jennifer L.; Whitworth, Brooke A.; Bell, Randy L.; Sterling, Donna R. – Science Education, 2020
Through a randomized controlled trial, this mixed-methods study evaluated changes in elementary science teachers' understandings, confidence, and classroom implementation of problem-based learning (PBL), inquiry, and nature of science (NOS) instruction following participation in a professional development (PD) as well as the components of the PD…

Chappell, Mindy J.; Varelas, Maria – Science Education, 2020
We explored how arts-based practices, specifically what we define as ethnodance informs the study of science identity. We present a theoretical argument supported by an empirical illustration of how ethnodance offers Black youth with dance identities a medium to narrate evolving science identities, communicating meanings, interactions, and…

Leung, Jessica Shuk Ching – Science Education, 2020
Epistemic understanding of science is essential for critical evaluation of scientific claims. In principle, developing students' epistemic understanding would enhance students' capability in evaluating scientific claims. However, findings on this "expected" connection have been inconclusive. This paper seeks to examine this discrepancy…

Meier, Valerie; Aminger, Walter; McLean, Mandy; Carpenter, Stacey L.; Moon, Sungmin; Hough, Sarah; Bianchini, Julie A. – Science Education, 2020
To prepare preservice secondary science teachers to teach English learners (ELs), teacher education programs must provide sustained coursework and experiences in principles and strategies found effective in supporting ELs' learning of science. In the context of a teacher education program recognized for its attention to ELs, we investigated seven…

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,…
