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.…

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…

Schenkel, Kathleen; Calabrese Barton, Angela; Tan, Edna; Nazar, Christina Restrepo; Flores, Marcos D. González D. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Science for all has been touted as the primary path to equity in science education in the USA. We argue that without attention to the power imbalances that both create and sustain dominant views of science education; such an approach is not equity-oriented but rather science colonizing. In this manuscript, we draw upon critical views of justice to…

Patterson, Alexis D. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Over the last few decades, there has been an international focus on productive talk in science classrooms, requiring teachers to use more dialogic practices with their students. Studies promoting a dialogic approach propose that students have conversations in small, student-led groups. However, the literature in education and science education…
