Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2017
Analogies have been widely used as tools for teaching difficult science concepts. The purposeful use of appropriate analogies can facilitate analogical thinking and help students develop the necessary transfer skills required for lifelong learning. Analogical thinking facilitates the development of higher order thinking skills among students. In…

Boesdorfer, Sarah B.; Asprey, Laura M. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2017
Research experiences for teachers have been shown to improve their knowledge and teaching practice. One type of research experience not as well studied is undergraduate science education research. Using qualitative research methodologies, the teaching practices and tools of seven novice teachers who participated in undergraduate science education…

Wallace, Duane E.; Bodzin, Alec M. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2017
This quasi-experimental study examined how the approach of mobile learning and authentic practice (MobiLAP) may foster scientific citizenship among ninth grade students. It was hypothesized that students that form identities as citizen scientists may have more favorable attitudes to contribute to citizen science, have greater interest in science…

Kang, Emily J. S.; Swanson, Lauren H.; Bauler, Clara V. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2017
This paper explored the integration of science and language instruction during a unit on plate tectonics in a 7th grade transitional bilingual classroom. As not many studies have explored engaging bilingual learners in the Next Generation Science Standards practices of argumentation and explanation, we sought to analyze emergent bilinguals'…

Ajaja, O. Patrick; Agboro-Eravwoke, Urhievwejire Ochuko – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2017
The major purpose of this study was to explore the metacognitive orientations of science students at the secondary level of education. To achieve this, three research questions and hypotheses were raised, answered and tested at 0.05 level of significance. The design of the study was survey and samples consisted of 36 schools and 705 science…

Carter, Ingrid; Rogers, Meredith Park; Amador, Julie; Akerson, Valarie; Pongsanon, Khemmawadee – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2016
The purpose of this study was to explore how participation in iterative cycles of a modified model of lesson study could potentially provide preservice teachers opportunities to develop the ability to notice students' science thinking. Using a case study approach, we examined how six preservice teachers illustrated aspects of "professional…

Concario, Marcelo – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2016
In this paper I underscore the notion of "languaging" as students' ways of functioning in and through language, particularly in interactions that involve spoken and written texts in the classroom. Thus, "to language" should be understood as active student participation - verbally, in particular - that can reveal how they deal…

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…
