Weiss, Kathleen A.; McDermott, Mark A.; Hand, Brian – Studies in Science Education, 2022
Educational initiatives in multiple disciplinary areas call for student engagement in the practice of argumentation (CCSSI, 2010a, 2010b; Mullis & Martin, 2017; NGSS Lead States, 2013; OECD, 2018). In science education, immersive argument-based inquiry (ABI) is one category of approaches which integrates argumentation in all classroom activity…

Davis, Elizabeth A.; Janssen, Fred J. J. M.; Van Driel, Jan H. – Studies in Science Education, 2016
Curriculum materials serve as a key conceptual tool for science teachers, and better understanding how science teachers use these tools could help to improve both curriculum design and theory related to teacher learning and decision-making. The authors review the literature on teachers and science curriculum materials. The review is organised…

Perkins, David N.; Grotzer, Tina A. – Studies in Science Education, 2005
This article argues that an important source of the difficulties posed by particular concepts and theories is the narrow range of "types of causal models" with which most learners are familiar. Most learners are familiar with relatively simple styles of causal models, but many concepts and theories in science depend on styles…
