Bellocchi, Alberto; Davis, James P.; Olson, Rebecca E.; Appanna, Subhashni D. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Amy Goods's software review article "V-Note: A video analysis tool for teacher | researchers" stimulated our interest in adopting this software to understand social bonding dynamics in a group of 10th-grade science students' during a science inquiry project. Three of us employed V-Note to analyze two video files for the same lesson in…

Raveendran, Aswathy; Srivastava, Himanshu – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This article is a response to María del Mar Aragón, José Antonio Acevedo-Díaz and Antonio García-Carmona's article, which investigated pre-service teachers' understandings of epistemic and non-epistemic aspects of the nature of science (NOS) based on the historical case study of Ignaz Semmelweis and childbed fever. We situate the study in…

Singh, Gurinder; Shaikh, Rafikh; Haydock, Karen – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Our investigation focusses on a group of eleven lower-middle-class students from classrooms in which the teachers did most of the talking and students rarely asked any questions. We have examined whether spontaneous discussions among the students in a less structured setting would include questioning, and what kinds of questions they might ask.…

Frède, Valérie – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
In this article, we compared French and Cameroonian schoolchildren's initial conceptions and comprehension of the night and day cycle in order to test for cultural influence. Forty students aged almost 8 years (Grade 2) were individually interviewed in their schools about night and day dynamics before they had received any teaching in astronomy.…

Aragón-Méndez, María del Mar; Acevedo-Díaz, José Antonio; García-Carmona, Antonio – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This article presents a qualitative study of the understanding of various epistemic and non-epistemic aspects of the nature of science (NOS), based on analysis of the historical case of Semmelweis and childbed fever. To this aim, an activity was designed which consisted of: (1) reading of a narrative of the case without instruction and discussion…

Goods, Amy R. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
In the Fall of 2017, I was introduced to V-Note, a software tool for analyzing audio and video in the classroom. I quickly adapted to using V-Note in research as it is easy to navigate, widely accessible, and most necessary features are included for free. Through this paper, I explore some possible applications of V-Note in education research. I…

Morin, Émilie – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This forum paper is a reflection about the paper written by Valérie Frède and illustrates how it influences my work as a Ph.D. student in education. It focuses mainly on the relationship to knowledge and the clash between student culture and Western science culture in classroom. In this forum paper, I will briefly explain why these two ideas seems…

Kermish-Allen, Ruth; Peterman, Karen; Bevc, Christine – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
The field of citizen science is one of the fastest growing sectors in informal education, specifically because of the new opportunities that are now available within today's digitized and networked world. This paper describes a unique co-created citizen science project, WeatherBlur, which brought fishermen, elementary students, and teachers from…

Boda, Phillip A. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This study reports a collective case study of five science education graduate students to highlight the role of culture as an influential component within their conceptual understandings of urban science education. Conceptual change theory was used as a theoretical framework to explore the negotiations that five graduate students experienced…

Archer, Louise; Nomikou, Effrosyni; Mau, Ada; King, Heather; Godec, Spela; DeWitt, Jennifer; Dawson, Emily – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This paper draws on Judith Butler's concepts of "intelligibility" and "identity as performance" to make sense of enactments of 'subaltern' (that is, subordinated) urban students within secondary school science. Understanding classrooms as constituted by complex power struggles for voice, authenticity and recognition, the paper…

Gasparatou, Renia – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Aragón, Acevedo-Díaz and García-Carmona study prospective biology teachers' understanding of the Nature of Science (NOS). In my comment, I would first like to step back and ask "what it is to understand something", i.e. the sciences. I will turn to a quasi-Wittgensteinian epistemological tradition and suggest that, contrary to our habit…

Bazzul, Jesse; Tolbert, Sara – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This article attempts to add to the conversation on equity and science education by arguing that activist work necessitates turning away from conservative fields of research that only forward the agenda of national governments/patriarchy/white supremacy/capital, and turning toward larger sociopolitical movements and non-dominant forms of knowledge…

Fortney, Brian S.; Atwood, Erin D. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
This manuscript focuses on the experiences of a science teacher educator's initial engagement in reconceptualization of the construct of equity in classrooms through the use of praxis. What might equity look like if conceptualized as a dynamic interaction between teacher and individual students? Utilizing a critically situated perspective, this…

Tesoriero, Gina – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
In this dialogue with Phillip A. Boda's "Conceptualizing the margins into science education praxis:disability as case in point," I would like to continue the conversation on an equity-focused graduate course meant to prepare pre-service educators to value and leverage diversity in the classroom. While Boda's analysis revealed that…
