Christa Haverly; Elizabeth A. Davis – Studies in Science Education, 2024
The work of elementary science teaching is challenging given the wide array of subject matter most teachers are expected to teach and a systematic de-prioritisation of science at these grades. In this literature review (63 papers; 2010-2020), we use a framework of readiness for science teaching. Using this framework allows us to illustrate…

Jack K. H. Pun; Xuehua Fu; Kason Ka Ching Cheung – Studies in Science Education, 2024
In classrooms worldwide, the use of English to teach science subjects is becoming increasingly common. There is an increasing number of English-as-a-second/foreign-language learners studying science in English. This review examines 66 empirical studies on this topic published from 2000 to 2021. We critically review and synthesise evidence of the…

Kranz, Johanna; Baur, Armin; Möller, Andrea – Studies in Science Education, 2023
In today's world shaped by technology and the natural sciences, knowledge and skills related to experimentation are crucial, especially given growing public debates about science-related topics. Despite a strong emphasis on experimentation in science curricula worldwide, learners still encounter diverse challenges when experimenting. This paper…

Feser, Markus Sebastian; Haak, Inka – Studies in Science Education, 2023
Since 2010, a remarkable number of literature reviews on teacher identity has been published. These literature reviews address a wide range of different foci, e.g., school teachers' identity, higher education teachers' identity, or the identity of teachers teaching a specific subject such as science. So far, these literature reviews have not been…

Google, Angela N.; Gardner, Grant; Grinath, Anna S. – Studies in Science Education, 2023
For decades, biology education researchers have made efforts towards engaging undergraduate students in the process of science and assisting students in their development of deep approaches to learning in the field. Research indicates that students who adopt deep approaches or study strategies make meaningful connections with course material and…

Gray, Ron; McDonald, Scott; Stroupe, David – Studies in Science Education, 2022
This article explores how scholars have framed studies of preservice science teacher (PST) knowledge and learning over the past twelve years. We examined relevant studies between 2008 and 2020, coding them by theoretical perspective (cognitive or sociocultural), knowledge perspective (deficit or asset), and teaching level (elementary, secondary,…

Peart, Daniel J. – Studies in Science Education, 2022
Science and drawing have been paired for hundreds of years, and this synergy is still prevalent in research investigating the role of drawing for developing and assessing understanding. However, despite research at the primary and secondary levels of education, there is limited research on whether drawing facilitates learning at the undergraduate…

Bouchée, T.; de Putter-Smits, L.; Thurlings, M.; Pepin, B. – Studies in Science Education, 2022
Research on teaching and learning quantum physics (QP) frequently explores students' conceptual difficulties to identify common patterns in their reasoning. The abstractness of QP is often found to be at the origin of students' conceptual difficulties. Due to this abstract nature students resort to common sense reasoning or classical thinking when…

Chang, Hsin-Yi; Lin, Tzung-Jin; Lee, Min-Hsien; Lee, Silvia Wen-Yu; Lin, Tzu-Chiang; Tan, Aik-Ling; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Studies in Science Education, 2020
In this study, we reviewed 76 journal articles on employing drawing assessment as a research tool in science education. Findings from the systematic review suggest four justifications for using drawing as a type of research tool, including assessment via drawing as (a) an alternative method considering young participants' verbal or writing…

Riopel, Martin; Nenciovici, Lucian; Potvin, Patrice; Chastenay, Pierre; Charland, Patrick; Sarrasin, Jérémie Blanchette; Masson, Steve – Studies in Science Education, 2019
Serious games have become increasingly available to educators. Empirical studies and meta-analyses have examined their impact on learning achievement. However, natural sciences could have a special relation to serious games by their systematic use of quantitative and predictive models that can generate microworlds and simulations. Since no known…

Bush, Drew; Sieber, Renee; Seiler, Gale; Chandler, Mark – Studies in Science Education, 2017
This paper reviews university-level efforts to improve understanding of anthropogenic global climate change (AGCC) through curricula that enable student scientific inquiry. We examined 152 refereed publications and proceedings from academic conferences and selected 26 cases of inquiry learning that overcome specific challenges to AGCC teaching.…

Avraamidou, Lucy – Studies in Science Education, 2014
Over the past 10?years an increasing number of articles have been published in leading science education journals that report on research about teacher identity and describe interventions that support teacher identity development. My purpose in this review paper is to examine how the construct of science teacher identity has been conceptualised…

Martinez-Garza, Mario; Clark, Douglas B.; Nelson, Brian C. – Studies in Science Education, 2013
This review synthesises research on digital games and science learning as it supports the goals for science proficiency outlined in the report by the US National Research Council on science education reform. The review is organised in terms of these research-based goals for science proficiency in light of their alignment with current science…

Zohar, Anat; Barzilai, Sarit – Studies in Science Education, 2013
The goal of this study is to map the current state of research in the field of metacognition in science education, to identify key trends, and to discern areas and questions for future research. We conducted a systematic analysis of 178 studies published in peer-reviewed journals in the years 2000-2012 and indexed in the ERIC database. The…

King, Donna – Studies in Science Education, 2012
Context-based chemistry education aims to improve student interest and motivation in chemistry by connecting canonical chemistry concepts with real-world contexts. Implementation of context-based chemistry programmes began 20 years ago in an attempt to make the learning of chemistry meaningful for students. This paper reviews such programmes…
