de Graaf, Arjan; Westbroek, Hanna; Janssen, Fred – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
In this study we investigated how a theoretical framework we developed for making differentiated instruction practical worked out in a trajectory (1 year, 5 sessions) that aimed to support 5 secondary biology teachers in designing differentiated instruction practices. The key feature of the framework is the development of cost-effective…

Heineke, Amy J.; Smetana, Lara; Carlson Sanei, Jenna – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Teacher education programs are responsible for preparing science teachers for today's culturally and linguistically diverse classrooms, which includes preparing them to support students' science learning and language development. Given the rapid growth in linguistic diversity across the country, science teacher preparation for English learners,…

Bancroft, Senetta F.; Herrington, Deborah G.; Dumitrache, Roxana – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
This quasi-experimental study evaluated middle- and high-school science teachers' implementation of three-dimensional (3D) instruction as defined by the "Next Generation Science Standards." Teachers participated in a long-term professional development (PD) program designed to increase their use of inquiry-based science instruction. We…

Thompson, Stephen L.; Emmer, Ed – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
This exploratory case study centered on 3 beginning elementary science teachers who experienced variations in practice-based instructional approaches within their elementary teacher development sequence. We define "practice-based instructional approaches" as engaging with teaching approximations that occur in authentic classroom settings…

McFadden, Justin – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
The current study, a uniquely challenging failed partnership, describes via an exploratory case study design the endeavors of a single middle school science teacher as he translated the reform messages of the Next Generation Science Standards into actual classroom practice. Data collected from both within and outside of the classroom revealed the…

Sinapuelas, Michelle L.; Lardy, Corinne; Korb, Michele A.; Bae, Christine Lee; DiStefano, Rachelle – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the Framework for K-12 Science Education (NRC, 2012) on which they are based, describe a new vision for science education that includes having students learn science in a way that more closely aligns to how scientists and engineers work and think. Accomplishing this goal will require teacher…

McDonald, Scott; Grimes, Paul; Doughty, Leanne; Finlayson, Odilla; McLoughlin, Eilish; van Kampen, Paul – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
This article reports on an investigation of a workshop approach to probe and deepen Irish preservice teachers' (PSTs') initial professional pedagogical vision of inquiry-based science education (IBSE). In an effort to understand the experiential and historical foundation of their vision, we report on the current culture of science teaching and…

Johnson, Heather J.; Mawyer, Kirsten K. N. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Practice-based approaches to teacher education should emphasize strategies that help teacher candidates centralize student thinking in instructional practice while providing a rationale for why student thinking is integral to student learning. This study describes how secondary science teacher candidates engage in tool-supported analysis of…

Wallace, Carolyn S.; Coffey, Debra J. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
The purpose of this study was to investigate the ways in which preservice elementary teacher candidates designed integrated reading and science lessons that evoked the use of similar cognitive skills in both subjects, such as sequencing, predicting, classifying, or noting cause and effect. The authors provided the candidates with a lesson plan…

Collins, Larry; Cavagnetto, Andy; Ferry, Nicole; Adesope, Olusola; Baldwin, Kathryn; Morrison, Judith; Premo, Joshua – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Reform documents like the Next Generation Science Standards call for the integration of science practices and content. One such framework that leverages science practices to support learning of content and practices is the Science Writing Heuristic (SWH). This study examined where 33 teachers focused their attention over the course of a 3-year…

Bartels, Selina L.; Rupe, Kathryn M.; Lederman, Judith S. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education has become an international focus of science education curricular reforms. However, few K-12 teachers have the background to authentically teach STEM in an integrated way. This is especially true of elementary teachers, who are often less confident or prepared to teach STEM disciplines…

Mawyer, Kirsten K. N.; Johnson, Heather J. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Educational reform needs to address the role of literacy in science if there is to be any hope of achieving the goal of literacy for all U.S. students. For reading to play a more prominent role in secondary science, teacher education programs need to develop and offer courses that familiarize preservice science teachers with disciplinary literacy.…

Ogodo, Justina A. – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
Many high school classrooms in the United States have physics teachers who are teaching the subject outside their certified content areas because of a severe shortage of physics teachers. There is a critical need to improve the knowledge base of these out-of-field teachers. This comparative case study examined the instructional practice of…

Kang, Emily J. S.; McCarthy, Mary Jean; Donovan, Corinne – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2019
This paper reports findings from a two-year investigation on the impact of a professional development (PD) program on second grade teachers' science teaching practice, particularly of the Next Generation Science Standards Science and Engineering Practices (NGSS SEPs). The aims of this study were three-fold: 1) identify which SEPs teachers enacted…
