Graulich, Nicole; Hedtrich, Sebastian; Harzenetter, René – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Learning to interpret organic structures not as an arrangement of lines and letters but, rather, as a representation of chemical entities is a challenge in organic chemistry. To successfully deal with the variety of molecules or mechanistic representations, a learner needs to understand how a representation depicts domain-specific information.…

Dickmann, Thomas; Opfermann, Maria; Dammann, Elmar; Lang, Martin; Rumann, Stefan – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Visualizations and visual models are of substantial importance for science learning (Harrison and Treagust, 2000), and it seems impossible to study chemistry without visualizations. More specifically, the combination of visualizations with text is especially beneficial for learning when dual coding is fostered (Mayer, 2014). However, at the same…

van Vorst, Helena – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
This paper introduces Ladders of Learning (LLs) as a tool for structuring learning content and the teaching process in a transparent way for students. Learning material for a LL for Bohr's atomic model was developed by cooperation between chemistry teachers and university researchers and implemented in grade-eight chemistry classes. For evaluating…

Emden, M.; Weber, K.; Sumfleth, e. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
One of the most central tenets of chemistry education is developing an understanding of the processes that involve the Transformation of Matter. Current German curricula postulate content-related abilities ("Kompetenzen") that are expected to be achieved by secondary students when graduating from the lower secondary level at grade 10.…

Caspari, I.; Kranz, D.; Graulich, N. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2018
Research in organic chemistry education has revealed that students often rely on rote memorization when learning mechanisms. Not much is known about student productive resources for causal reasoning. To investigate incipient stages of student causal reasoning about single mechanistic steps of organic reactions, we developed a theoretical framework…

Affeldt, Fiona; Tolppanen, Sakari; Aksela, Maija; Eilks, Ingo – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
Non-formal education has been suggested as becoming more and more important in the last decades. As the aims of non-formal education are broad and diverse, a large variety of non-formal learning activities is available. One of the emerging fields in many countries, among them Finland and Germany, has been the establishment of non-formal laboratory…

Semmler, Luzie; Pietzner, Verena – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
Creativity has become an increasingly important competence in today's rapidly changing times, especially for school graduates who strive for pursuing a technical or scientific career. But creativity has not been integrated in the lessons or curricula of STEM subjects. To successfully integrate it in the classroom, it is important to investigate…

Taskin, V.; Bernholt, S.; Parchmann, I. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2015
Chemical representations play an important role in helping learners to understand chemical contents. Thus, dealing with chemical representations is a necessity for learning chemistry, but at the same time, it presents a great challenge to learners. Due to this great challenge, it is not surprising that numerous national and international studies…

Belova, Nadja; Eilks, Ingo – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2015
This paper describes a case study on the chemistry behind natural cosmetics in five chemistry learning groups (grades 7-11, age range 13-17) in a German comprehensive school. The lesson plan intends to promote critical media literacy in the chemistry classroom and specifically emphasizes learning with and about advertising. The lessons of four…

Stuckey, Marc; Eilks, Ingo – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2014
This paper presents a study on tattooing as a topic for chemistry education. The selection of the topic was inspired by a newly suggested framework, which focuses on the question of relevance of science education. The aim of this case was to get evidence on how topics selected based on the suggested model of relevance of science education affect…

Burmeister, Mareike; Schmidt-Jacob, Sabine; Eilks, Ingo – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2013
Sustainability became a regulatory idea of national and international policies worldwide with the advent of the Agenda 21. One part of these policies includes promoting sustainability through educational reform. With the United Nations World Decade for Education for Sustainable Development (ESD), spanning the years 2005 to 2014, all school…

Krause, Moritz; Kienast, Stephan; Witteck, Torsten; Eilks, Ingo – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2013
This paper describes the development and assessment of a learning environment to support the transition of students from lower to upper secondary chemistry education in Germany. The learning environment centers on reviewing and expanding learners' prior chemistry knowledge in heterogeneous learning groups upon entering upper secondary education.…

Graulich, Nicole; Tiemann, Rudiger; Schreiner, Peter R. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2012
We investigate the efficiency of domain-specific heuristic strategies in mastering and predicting pericyclic six-electron rearrangements. Based on recent research findings on these types of reactions a new concept has been developed that should help students identify and describe six-electron rearrangements more readily in complex molecules. The…

Burmeister, Mareike; Rauch, Franz; Eilks, Ingo – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2012
The years between 2005 and 2014 have been declared as a worldwide Decade of Education for Sustainable Development (DESD) by the United Nations. DESD's intended purpose is to promote and more thoroughly focus education as a crucial tool preparing young people to be responsible future citizens, so that our future generations can shape society in a…

Eissen, Marco – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2012
"Sustainability" is a very general term and the question arises how to specify it within daily laboratory work. In this regard, appropriate metrics could support a socially acceptable, ecological and economic product development. The application of metrics for sustainability should be strengthened in education, because they do not belong…
