del Carmen Gomez, María – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
The current paper draws on data generated through group interviews with students who were involved in a larger ethnographic research project performed in three science classrooms. The purpose of the study from which this data was generated, was to understand science teachers' assessment practices in an upper-secondary school in Sweden. During…

Ramos de Robles, S. Lizette – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
From a sociocultural perspective, I discuss data from a Swedish science classroom presented in María Gómez's article "Student Explanations of their Science Teachers' Assessments, Grading Practices, and How they learn Science". In this discussion, I focus on the need to change existing conceptions of assessment in the teaching and…

Chaffee, Rachel; Gupta, Preeti – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
This review explores Jackson and Seiler's "I am smart enough to study postsecondary science: A critical discourse analysis of latecomers' identity construction in an online forum" by considering the analytic framework for figured worlds guiding this study. We consider the specific affordances of cultural production theory for examining…

Jackson, Phoebe A.; Seiler, Gale – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
Latecomers to science are students who take non-traditional routes into postsecondary science because they are initially missing prerequisites. Latecomers have a lower rate of persistence than traditional science students. This critical discourse analysis of an online forum thread uses Gee's toolkit to explore how latecomers, who have histories of…

Labouta, Hagar Ibrahim; Adams, Jennifer Dawn; Cramb, David Thomas – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
In this paper we reflect on the article "I am smart enough to study postsecondary science: a critical discourse analysis of latecomers' identity construction in an online forum", by Phoebe Jackson and Gale Seiler (Cult Stud Sci Educ. https://doi.org/10.1007/s11422-017-9818-0). In their article, the authors did a significant amount of…

Caiman, Cecilia; Lundegård, Iann – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
This research is concerned with how children's processes of imagination, situated in cultural and social practices, come into play when they invent, anticipate, and explore a problem that is important to them. To enhance our understanding of young children's learning and meaning-making related to science and sustainability, research that…

Sulsberger, Megan J. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
Cecilia Caiman and Iann Lundegård's research highlights that an important goal of education is to equip younger generations with tools for innovation. This specifically applies in the realm of science education, as younger generations will likely require a unique preparation and skillset to tackle the environmental issues they will face in young…

Martin, Jenny – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
This commentary promotes discussion on the imaginary provided by Sanaz Farhangi in her article entitled, "Contribution to activity: a lens for understanding students' potential and agency in physics education" (see EJ1191322). The commentary is concerned with aligning ontological assumptions in research accounts of learning and…

Bazzul, Jesse; Wallace, Maria F. G.; Higgins, Marc – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
In this article, we, a multivocal-thinking-assemblage, trouble what we feel is the dogmatic image of thought in science education. Beginning with Lars Bang's (Cult Stud Sci Educ, 2017) dramatic and disruptive imagery of the Ouroboros as a means to challenge scientific literacy we explore the importance of dreams, thinking with both virtual and…

Farhangi, Sanaz – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
In this paper I argue for using the concept of "contribution" to activity to understand student engagement with science education and its transformational potential in formal settings. Drawing on transformative activist stance, I explain "contribution as how individuals take part in and transform collective practices according to…

Bang, Lars – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
This paper explores the concept of scientific literacy through its relation to democracy and citizenship. Scientific literacy has received international attention in the twenty-first century as demonstrated by the Programme for International Student Assessment survey of 2006. It is no longer just a concept but has become a stated and testable…

Mitchell, Debra Bailey – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
In responding to Murakami and Siegel's "Becoming Bermuda grass" one is led to reflect on one's own practice in what becomes an example of reflexivity. Following the authors' lead of incorporating Deleuze and Guattari's rhizomatic theory and the art form of decalcomania to reflect on practice, discoveries are made regarding the practice…

Murakami, Christopher D.; Siegel, Marcelle A. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
This narrative project used rhizomatic analysis and reflexivity to describe a layered process of responding to a student's identity of non-participation within an undergraduate science classroom. Mapping rhizomes represents an ongoing and experimental process in consciousness. Rhizomatic mapping in educational studies is too often left out of the…

Scogin, Stephen C.; Cavlazoglu, Baki; LeBlanc, Jennifer; Stuessy, Carol L. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
While the achievement gap in science exists in the US, research associated with our investigation reveals some high school science programs serving diverse student bodies are successfully closing the gap. Using a mixed methods approach, we identified and investigated ten high schools in a large Southwestern state that fit the definition of…

Liu, Ning; Neuhaus, Birgit Jana – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2018
Given the globalization of science education and the different cultures between China and Germany, we tried to compare and explain the differences on teacher questions and real life instances in biology lessons between the two countries from a culture-related perspective. 22 biology teachers from China and 21 biology teachers from Germany…
