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…

Weinburgh, Molly H.; Stewart, Morgan; Silva, Cecilia – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2017
The importance of culture and social interactions in disciplinary learning and language development within specific social practices and contexts is now an agreed-upon notion in the science education literature. In a pivotal article in 1990, Lemke introduced the idea of manual-technical operations as one of four modes making up the "hybrid…

Smith-Walters, Cindi; Mangione, Katherine A.; Smith Bass, Alyson – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2016
Science is a subject steeped in specialized vocabulary and elementary preservice teachers may find themselves less than comfortable with that vocabulary. Couple this with their long documented fear of the subject and we have teachers who enter their first classrooms unsure of themselves and the content and thus, less able to prepare their own…

Franco, Yvonne – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2013
Attention to inquiry-based teaching practices has surfaced as one vehicle for supporting the development of critical thinking skills in science classrooms (Achieve Inc., 2013). Despite the endless dialogue, professional development, and standards to support the teaching approach, in practice, inquiry presents teachers with a great challenge. In…

Lundström, Mats – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2013
In this article the possibilities to use video diaries as data collection tool in studies about scientific literacy are discussed. The starting point is a need for students to develop scientific knowledge which they can use as citizens in different situations. I argue that with this definition the students' scientific literacy (SL) must be…
