Winston, Johnny – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2019
For years science curriculum reformers have bemoaned curricula that are "a mile wide and an inch deep." The tendency for high school science to be "[content]-dominate and textbook centered" leads to science courses bloated with facts and equations at the expense of a deep understanding of science as a process and way of knowing…

Boesdorfer, Sarah B. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2015
Representations are an effective tool that chemistry teachers choose to use in their classes to help their students understand abstract concepts. According to the model of pedagogical content knowledge (PCK), a teacher's knowledge of representations is part his/her PCK, which is shaped specifically by his/her orientation towards science teaching.…
