McCall, Madelon – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2017
University laboratory science courses are typically designed to prepare science majors or those who are pursuing health related careers. These courses often do not provide the experiences necessary to improve elementary preservice teacher science teaching efficacy or attitudes and beliefs toward science. This research utilized a university science…

Thompson, Kenneth W.; Dow, Mirah J. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2017
National Research Council polices (NRC, 2012a, 2012b) and the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015 (Pub. L. No. 114-145) call for educators to have active roles in teaching to achieve new goals and purposes for education. A high priority is teaching content knowledge and information fluency skills that will result in deep learning, higher…

Borgerding, Lisa Ann; Kaya, Fatma; Librea-Carden, Mila Rosa; Pantuso, Davida; Maybin, Jaren – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2017
Physics and physical science content are essential for many professional fields, and they are an important component of scientific literacy. Yet, students are commonly less engaged in physics learning at all levels. Funds of knowledge approaches to science instruction build upon learners' real-world experiences and interests in order to make…

Casenove, David; Kirk, Steve – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2016
The present paper focuses on the acquisition of hedging techniques by first-year undergraduate students at the University of Tokyo in Japan. One of the major difficulties faced by aspiring science writers lies in positioning their arguments in relation to the preexisting literature. This originates from the fact that writing in the field of…
