Kilinc, Ahmet; Kelly, Thomas; Eroglu, Baris; Demiral, Umit; Kartal, Tezcan; Sonmez, Arzu; Demirbag, Mehmet – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
For science teachers using the discourse of socioscientific issues (SSI), it is important to make a decision as to whether when and how to disclose their own positions. The existing limited literature shows that science teachers prefer one of four roles during SSI discourse: sticker to facts, imposer, democracy advocator, and committed…

Balta, Nuri; Eryilmaz, Ali – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2017
One way to fascinate, engage, arouse curiosity, motivate, and stimulate intellectual development in learning scientific concepts is to use counterintuitive questions. These questions make students aware of the inadequacies of their own thinking by exposing them to situations whose outcomes are inconsistent with what they would expect. In this…
