Shortland, Lorrin Ruihi; Locke, Terry – Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, 2018
This article reports on what happened when a Rumaki putaiao kaiako (Science) teacher at a New Zealand high school trialled the use of creative narratives with her Year-10 students as a way of developing their understanding of the human digestive system. These students were members of the school's Maori immersion unit, and creative narratives were…

Brock, Richard; Hay, David – Science & Education, 2019
Whilst many science educators, it is reported, associate knowledge with justified true belief (JTB), epistemologists have observed that the JTB model is an incomplete account of knowledge. Moreover, researchers from several fields have argued that developing scientific expertise involves not only the acquisition of knowledge that can be expressed…

Klosterman, Michelle L.; Chrispeels, Hanya E.; Reagan, Bryan R.; Lundy, Stacey R.; Browne, Carole L.; Muday, Gloria K. – Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, 2014
Like the figurative apple for the teacher, the tomato is a well-known food symbol representing a variety of cuisines. We drew on current scientific research and partnerships with classroom teachers to develop a case study activity consisting of four layers to teach concepts of plant biology and genetics to middle and high school students. The goal…

Ishikawa, Midori; Kubota, Nozomi; Kudo, Keita; Meadows, Martin; Umezawa, Atsuko; Ota, Toru – Health Education Journal, 2013
Objective: The purpose of the study was to discover whether tomato consumption in elementary- and middle-school students could be increased through a school lunch programme developed by agricultural high-school students acting as peer educators. Design: The high-school lunch programme included the process of growing tomatoes and providing a…

Chamberlain, Jenna M.; Gagné, Christina L.; Spalding, Thomas L.; Lõo, Kaidi – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2020
Three experiments using a spelling error detection task investigated the extent to which morphemes and pseudomorphemes affect word processing. We compared the processing of transparent compound words (e.g., doorbell), pseudocompound words (e.g., carpet), and matched control words (e.g., tomato). In half of the compound and pseudocompound words,…

Arciuli, Joanne; Bailey, Benjamin – Journal of Child Language, 2019
In this exploratory study, we examined stress contrastivity within real word productions elicited via picture naming in 20 children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and 20 typical peers group-wise matched on age and vocabulary. Targets had a dominant pattern of lexical stress beginning with a strong-weak pattern (SW: 'caterpillar',…

Ortigosa, Francisco; Valderrama-Martín, José M.; Ávila, Concepción; Cánovas, Francisco M.; Cañas, Rafael A. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Plant nitrogen nutrition is an essential topic in biology that should be included in scientific education. Nitrogen availability is one of the primary limiting factors for plant growth, and these organisms are the primary support for the pluricellular terrestrial life, since they are the fundamental group of autotrophs. For this reason, the use of…

Chrispeels, H. E.; Klosterman, M. L.; Martin, J. B.; Lundy, S. R.; Watkins, J. M.; Gibson, C. L.; Muday, G. K. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2014
This study tests the hypothesis that undergraduates who peer teach genetics will have greater understanding of genetic and molecular biology concepts as a result of their teaching experiences. Undergraduates enrolled in a non-majors biology course participated in a service-learning program in which they led middle school (MS) or high school (HS)…

Sarkar, Sayantani; Chatterjee, Subhasish; Medina, Nancy; Stark, Ruth E. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2013
An eight-session interdisciplinary laboratory curriculum has been designed using a suite of analytical chemistry techniques to study biomaterials derived from an inexpensive source such as the tomato fruit. A logical progression of research-inspired laboratory modules serves to "tour" the macroscopic characteristics of the fruit and the…

Roux, Sébastien; Bonin, Patrick – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2016
Seven experiments tested, whether when naming a colored object (e.g., "CAR"), its color (e.g., "red") is phonologically encoded. In the first experiment, adults had to say aloud the names of colored line drawings of objects that were each displayed among 3 black-and-white line drawings (Experiment 1a) or that were presented…

Wang, Yan; Zhang, Mingjie; Hu, Yongliang – Journal of Chemical Education, 2010
A novel experiment for the extraction of lycopene from tomato paste by foam fractionation is described. Foam fractionation is a process for separating and concentrating chemicals by utilizing differences in their surface activities. Extraction of lycopene by foam fractionation is a new method that has not been previously reported in the…

Eksvard, Karin – Journal of Agricultural Education and Extension, 2010
This article focuses on how a facilitated process of triple loop learning can enable transition toward more sustainable forms of farming. The article is a case-based study of Participatory Learning and Action Research with organic tomato growers in Malardalen, Sweden. The importance of negotiating learning and action, capacity building, and…

Kalman, Matthew – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2008
This article reports that despite the doubts about education financing, Israel's innovative companies spun off by universities show no signs of slowing down, as new drugs and other discoveries have produced huge incomes. Thirty years ago, two researchers at Hebrew University set about to make a better tomato. One that was firmer, stayed fresher…

Goeb, Joseph Christopher – ProQuest LLC, 2017
Many goods carry health risks that have important impacts on demand and behavior. However, the risks are rarely transparent and, as a result, consumers often have incomplete knowledge of the health risks associated with many of their consumption decisions. This can lead to inefficient behavior. With that in mind, economists have studied the…

Smith, Grinell – Schools: Studies in Education, 2012
This article is about storytelling. In an effort to open opportunities similar to what we experienced while we were in school, many among the education professorate seem to have adopted well-used and familiar "academic" models of seminar instruction virtually unaltered from their experiences as graduate students. One suspects, however,…
