Sadi, Özlem; Lee, Min-Hsien – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
The purpose of this study is to compare the conceptions of learning biology (COLB) of Taiwanese and Turkish high school students. In addition, it was investigated whether there is a gender difference in students' COLB in both countries. The COLB questionnaire was implemented in both countries and students' COLB were identified. A total of 562…

Lee, Hung-Shan; Liu, Shiang-Yao; Yeh, Ting-Kuang – Journal of Biological Education, 2016
This study was designed to exemplify how hands-on based teaching strategies enhanced students' knowledge and positive attitudes towards sharks. Hands-on activities for sharks' biological and morphological features were carried out. Eleven elementary school students from a remote area in Taiwan were recruited and assigned to the hands-on condition.…

Rundgren, Carl-Johan; Rundgren, Shu-Nu Chang; Schonborn, Konrad J. – Journal of Biological Education, 2010
Understanding diffusion of water into and out of the cell through osmosis is fundamental to the learning and teaching of biology. Although this process is thought of as occurring directly across the lipid bilayer, the majority of water transport is actually mediated by specialised transmembrane water-channels called aquaporins. This study…

Chang, Shu-Nu – Journal of Biological Education, 2007
The purpose of this study is to use concept maps as an "expressed model" to investigate students' mental models regarding the homeostasis of blood sugar. The difficulties in learning the concept of homeostasis and in probing mental models have been revealed in many studies. Homeostasis of blood sugar is one of the themes in junior high…

Wu, Ying-Tien; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Journal of Biological Education, 2005
The purpose of this study was primarily to explore the effects of constructivist-oriented instruction on fifth graders' cognitive structures about biological reproduction. Furthermore, such effects on different science achievers were also investigated. The subjects of this study were 69 eleven year olds in Taiwan, who were assigned to either a…

Hu, Reping; Chang, Wen-Hua; Lin, Chen-Yung – Journal of Biological Education, 2003
This study examines the curriculum components in biology favoured by high school students in Taiwan. Our sample consisted of 155 senior high school students (51 boys and 104 girls) and 137 junior high school students (74 boys and 63 girls). The questionnaire was based on the idea of a repertory grid technique and was developed to investigate the…
