Upahi, Johnson Enero; Ramnarain, Umesh – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
The difficulties encountered by students in learning chemistry range from human factors to the intrinsic nature of chemistry. To enhance students' understanding of chemistry, there is a wide consensus within the community of chemistry educators on the importance of and need to integrate different levels of representations in chemistry teaching and…

Hill, Michelle A.; Overton, Tina L.; Thompson, Christopher D.; Kitson, Russell R. A.; Coppo, Paolo – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Employers of chemistry graduates are seeking a range of transferable skills from prospective employees, and academics are increasingly seeking to build employability skill development opportunities into the undergraduate curriculum. However, research suggests that undergraduates do not recognise or value such skill development without prompting.…

Hennah, Naomi – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
The present paper reports upon the design and implementation of a novel practical work pedagogy that is shown to increase students' retention of practical procedures. The chemistry exams, for 15 to 16-year olds in England, will be assessed entirely through terminal examination questions from 2018. Longer term retention of learning is critical if…

Rusek, Martin; Vojír, Karel – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
This paper focuses on the procedure and results for analyzing text-difficulty in lower-secondary chemistry textbooks in the Czech Republic. The authors use established methodology for text-difficulty analysis by Nestler, adapted by Prucha and Pluskal by adding a second independent analyser to improve reliability. Some textbooks do not follow the…

Deng, Yang; Kelly, Gregory J.; Xiao, Lishi – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
This study examines scientific practices associated with scientific writing in organic chemistry in China. Although there is rapidly growing literature on the features and strategies of scientific writing, further research in this area is needed to recognize and treat scientific writing as a social endeavor to evaluate it in a more comprehensive…

Moreira, Patricia; Marzabal, Ainoa; Talanquer, Vicente – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
The central goal of this research study was to characterise the different types of reasoning manifested by high school chemistry students when building initial written explanations of a natural phenomenon. In particular, our study participants were asked to explain why a mixture of water and alcohol works as an antifreeze. Data collected in the…

Zheng, Changlong; Li, Langsen; He, Peng; Jia, Mengying – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Although the content of science lessons has been analyzed from different perspectives by developing a set of codes (e.g., K. J. Roth, S. L. Druker, H. E. Garnier, M. Lemmens, C. Chen, T. Kawanaka, and R. Gallimore, (2006), Teaching science in five countries: results from the TIMSS 1999 video study, Washington, DC: National Center for Education…

Ye, Jianqiang; Lu, Shanshan; Bi, Hualin – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
This study uses graphs of conductivity measured by a microcomputer-based laboratory (MBL) to promote students' macro, micro, and symbolic representations when learning about net ionic reactions (NIR). A total of 54 students, aged 14-15 years old participated in this research, and were randomly divided into an experimental group (N = 27) and a…

Galloway, Kelli R.; Leung, Min Wah; Flynn, Alison B. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Research has shown that within a traditional organic chemistry curriculum, organic chemistry students struggle to develop deep conceptual understanding of reactions and attribute little meaning to the electron-pushing formalism. At the University of Ottawa, a new curriculum was developed for organic chemistry in which students are taught the…

Eymur, Guluzar – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
The aim of the present study was to investigate the influence of the explicit nature of science instruction embedded in the Argument-Driven Inquiry method compared with an implicit inquiry method on eleventh grade students' conceptions of NOS. The study used a pre-/post-test control group design to investigate the influence of the explicit nature…

George-Williams, Stephen R.; Karis, Dimitri; Ziebell, Angela L.; Kitson, Russell R. A.; Coppo, Paolo; Schmid, Siegbert; Thompson, Christopher D.; Overton, Tina L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
How students behave and learn in the teaching laboratory is a topic of great interest in chemical education, partly in order to justify the great expense of teaching laboratories. Much effort has been put into investigating how students think, feel and physically act in these unique learning environments. One such attempt was made through the…

Veiga, Nicolas; Luzardo, Florencia; Irving, Kenneth; Rodriguez-Ayan, Maria N.; Torres, Julia – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
As a fundamental part of their chemical education, first-year undergraduate students are substantially involved in laboratory activities. Despite the specific teaching staff choices on the main laboratory aims, students normally receive a vast amount of information during these activities. Apart from understanding theoretical content, fundamental…

Rodriguez, Jon-Marc G.; Bain, Kinsey; Towns, Marcy H.; Elmgren, Maja; Ho, Felix M. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Graphical representations are an important tool used to model abstract processes in fields such as chemistry. Successful interpretation of a graph involves a combination of mathematical expertise and discipline-specific content to reason about the relationship between the variables and to describe the phenomena represented. In this work, we…

Lu, Shanshan; Bi, Hualin; Liu, Xiufeng – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Students have various conceptions of electrolytes in learning chemistry. The aim of this study is to identify 10th grade students' understanding of the electrolyte concept by using a phenomenographic method. Eight students, whose abilities were at different levels, were selected and interviewed. The findings show that four distinctive categories…

Morais, C.; Araujo, J. L.; Saude, I. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
A storytelling approach has been seen as a powerful way to teach science and arouse interest and promote positive attitudes toward learning science in the early years. The purpose of our study was to determine how middle school students -- Key Stage 3 (KS3) aged 12-14 in Portuguese schools -- experienced learning chemistry through storytelling and…
