Seiler, Gale; Kwamboka, Hildah – Research in Science Education, 2019
The authors draw on their own experiences as practitioners, one as a Biology and Agriculture teacher in Kenya, and the other as an educator in a summer science program serving African American youth in a city in the Midwestern United States. They document and analyze moments of language contestation and explore the use of the construct of…

Tolbert, Sara; Knox, Corey; Salinas, Ivan – Research in Science Education, 2019
In this article, we turn our attention to context-based approaches to science instruction. We studied the effects of changes to a set of secondary science teacher education programs, all of which were redesigned with attention to the Secondary Science Teaching with English Language and Literacy Acquisition (SSTELLA) instructional framework, a…

Marzabal, Ainoa; Merino, Cristian; Moreira, Patricia; Delgado, Virginia – Research in Science Education, 2019
One of the core practices of science teachers is the construction of science teaching explanations. These explanations serve to clarify concepts, procedures, facts, ideas, or types of problems, and are aimed at promoting student understanding. The low performance of Chilean science teachers on explanations has led us to incorporate instances in…

Cabello, Valeria M.; Real, Constanza; Impedovo, Maria Antonietta – Research in Science Education, 2019
Constructing explanations of scientific concepts is one of the most frequent strategies used in the science classroom and is a high-leverage teaching practice. This study analysed the explanations provided by student teachers in STEM areas from a socio-materiality perspective focused on verbal and nonverbal language and representations. The study…

Fazio, Xavier; Gallagher, Tiffany L. – Research in Science Education, 2019
While some students will pursue careers in science, all will engage with multimodal science-based texts. The effective use of language skills is essential to support sense making in science. The purpose of this study was to examine how elementary teachers integrated language within their science instruction, and how their instructional enactments…

Jung, Karl G. – Research in Science Education, 2019
Engagement in meaningful and authentic science learning requires students to access not only the science content and practices but also the academic language required to talk and write within science classrooms. This academic language creates a challenge within science classrooms as for many students this language differs from their everyday…

Lee, Jeong-A; Kim, Chan-Jong – Research in Science Education, 2019
This study aims to understand interactions in Korean elementary science classrooms, which are heavily influenced by Confucianism. Ethnographic observations of two elementary science teachers' classrooms in Korea are provided. Their classes are fairly traditional teaching, which mean teacher-centered interactions are dominant. To understand the…

Battaglia, Onofrio Rosario; Di Paola, Benedetto; Persano Adorno, Dominique; Pizzolato, Nicola; Fazio, Claudio – Research in Science Education, 2019
Two 20-h modelling-based workshops focused on the explanation of thermally activated phenomena were held at the University of Palermo, Italy, during the Academic Year 2014-2015. One of them was conducted by applying an inquiry-based approach, while the other, still based on laboratory and modelling activities, was not focused on inquiry.…

Jordens, J. Zoe; Zepke, Nick – Research in Science Education, 2019
Achieving quality in higher education is a complex task involving the interrelationship of many factors. The influence of the teacher is well established and has led to some general principles of good teaching. However, less is known about the extent that specific disciplines influence quality teaching. The purposes of the paper are to investigate…

Barendsen, Erik; Henze, Ineke – Research in Science Education, 2019
Science teachers' pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) has been researched in many studies, yet little empirical evidence has been found to determine how this knowledge actually informs teachers' actions in the classroom. To complement previous quantitative studies, there is a need for more qualitative studies to investigate the relationship…

Dorfner, Tobias; Förtsch, Christian; Boone, William; Neuhaus, Birgit J. – Research in Science Education, 2019
A number of studies on single instructional quality features have been reported for mathematics and science instruction. For summarizing single instructional quality features, researchers have created a model of three basic dimensions ("classroom management," "supportive climate," and "cognitive activation") of…

Corpuz, Edgar De Guzman; Rebello, N. Sanjay – Research in Science Education, 2019
The first phase of this multiphase study involves modeling of college students' thinking of friction at the microscopic level. Diagnostic interviews were conducted with 11 students with different levels of physics backgrounds. A phenomenographic approach of data analysis was used to generate categories of responses which subsequently were used to…

Preston, Christine Margaret – Research in Science Education, 2019
This article reports on the effect of using a diagram to develop primary students' conceptual understanding about electric circuits. Diagrammatic representations of electric circuits are used for teaching and assessment despite the absence of research on their pedagogical effectiveness with young learners. Individual interviews were used to…

Wang, Ya-Ling; Tsai, Chin-Chung – Research in Science Education, 2019
Students' conceptions of learning science and their relations with motive for learning may vary as the education level increases. This study aimed to compare the quantitative patterns in students' conceptions of learning science (COLS) and motives for learning science (MLS) across grade levels by adopting two survey instruments. A total of 768…

Leblebicioglu, G.; Abik, N. M.; Capkinoglu, E.; Metin, D.; Dogan, E. Eroglu; Cetin, P. S.; Schwartz, R. – Research in Science Education, 2019
Scientific inquiry is widely accepted as a method of science teaching. Understanding its characteristics, called Nature of Scientific Inquiry (NOSI), is also necessary for a whole conception of scientific inquiry. In this study NOSI aspects were taught explicitly through student inquiries in nature in two summer science camps. Students conducted…
