Yetter, Ibrahim H.; Livengood, Kimberly K.; Smith, Walter S. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2017
This study of science standards of all 50 states and 1958 American early adolescents asked whether there is agreement among states about a science topic, lunar phases, that appears in all recent national standards documents, is of cultural significance, and has been widely studied for misconceptions held by children and adults. Secondly, we asked…

Young, Jemimah L.; Feille, Kelly K.; Young, Jamaal R. – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2017
Black girls represent a unique subpopulation of science learners. Black girls are unique because they consistently outperform Black boys in science. Despite this trend, Black girls often face dual marginalization in STEM classrooms and professions. Racial and gender marginalization can inhibit the success of Black girls in science if researchers,…

Wegner, Class; Remmert, Kathrin; Ohlberger, Stephanie – Electronic Journal of Science Education, 2017
This article deals with a concept helping to reflect on teaching practice in the project "Kolumbus-Kids" at Bielefeld University. Lesson reflection aims at the mediation and training of certain teaching competences of student teachers, and therefore self-reflection is promoted by using the newly developed reflection wiki, its videotaping…

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…

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…

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…
