Kloser, Matthew; Wilsey, Matthew; Twohy, Kyra E.; Immonen, Audrey D.; Navotas, Ariel C. – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
STEM education has received attention both as a reform pedagogy and as a public means for economic growth and national security. Yet, despite this attention, clarity about what "counts" as STEM and how the individual disciplines relate to an integrated approach remains ambiguous. This article elicits the conceptions about what…

Stohlmann, Micah – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
The integration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education has received increased attention in the last decade. This is in part because of the need for students to increase in their STEM knowledge and competencies. Research is still needed to determine effective implementation models and curriculum for integrated STEM.…

Smith, Janette; Nadelson, Louis – School Science and Mathematics, 2017
Preparing elementary-level teachers to teach in alignment with the eight Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) practices could prove to be a daunting endeavor. However, the process may be catalyzed by leveraging elements of teacher science instruction that inherently attend to the practice standards. In this study, we investigated the science…

Weinberg, Andrea Elizabeth; Sample McMeeking, Laura Beth – School Science and Mathematics, 2017
Numerous national initiatives call for interdisciplinary mathematics and science education, but few empirical studies have examined practical considerations for integrated instruction in high school settings. The purpose of this qualitative study was twofold. First, the study sought to describe how and to what extent teachers integrate mathematics…

Tuttle, Nicole; Mentzer, Gale A.; Strickler, Lacey; Bloomquist, Debra; Hapgood, Susanna; Molitor, Scott; Kaderavek, Joan; Czerniak, Charlene M. – School Science and Mathematics, 2017
Promoting family learning around science represents an important opportunity to reinforce science learning during out-of-school time. Evidence suggests that parent-child discourse around science can promote inferential thinking by children and help solidify their understanding of science concepts. While teacher professional development that…

Reinhart, Meredith; Bloomquist, Debra; Strickler-Eppard, Lacey; Czerniak, Charlene M.; Gilbert, Amanda; Kaderavek, Joan; Molitor, Scott C. – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
A Framework for K-12 Science Education indicates that introducing young children to scientific and engineering practices, core disciplinary ideas, and crosscutting concepts during the early years is essential for the development of conceptual understanding in science. Unfortunately, science is infrequently included in preschool and primary…

Melville, Wayne; Campbell, Todd; Jones, Doug – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
In this article, we have considered the role of the chair in leading the learning necessary for a department to become effective in the teaching and learning of science from a reformed perspective. We conceptualize the phrase "leading learning" to mean the chair's constitution of influence, power, and authority to intentionally impact…

Sample McMeeking, Laura B.; Weinberg, Andrea E.; Boyd, Kathryn J.; Balgopal, Meena M. – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
Informal Science Education (ISE) programs have been increasing in popularity in recent years. The National Research Council has laid out six strands that ISE programs should try to address, including increasing interest, knowledge, and allowing participants to engage in scientific activities. Past research suggests that informal settings can…

Ramirez, Olga; McCollough, Cherie A.; Diaz, Zulmaris – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
The following describes a culturally relevant mathematics and science content program implemented by preservice teachers (PSTs) at Family Math/Science Learning Events (FM/SLEs) conducted through two different university programs in south Texas. These experiences are required course activities designed to inform PSTs of the importance of…

Binns, Ian C.; Polly, Drew; Conrad, James; Algozzine, Bob – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
"As the world becomes increasingly technological, the value of (the ideas and skills of its population) will be determined in no small measure by the effectiveness of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education in the United States" and "STEM education will determine whether the United States will remain a…

Boesdorfer, Sarah B.; Staude, Kristin D. – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
Effective professional development that influences teachers' classroom practices starts with what teachers know, understand, and do in their classroom. The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) challenge teachers to make changes to their classroom; to help teachers make these changes, it is necessary to know what they are doing in their…

Selcen Guzey, S.; Moore, Tamara J.; Morse, Gillian – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
Current reform efforts in science education around the world call on teachers to use integrated approaches to teach science. As a part of such reform efforts in the United States, engineering practices and engineering design have been identified in K-12 science education standards. However, there is relatively little is known about effective ways…

Groves, Fred H. – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
Middle and secondary science textbooks have long been a primary support for instruction, often leading to heavy emphasis on domain-specific vocabulary. A longitudinal study was conducted to compare vocabulary loads of science textbooks published since 2010 to results of two previous studies going back to 1983. In each study, textbooks chosen…

Burton, Erin Peters; Burton, Stephen – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
Professional scientists who pursue a teaching credential bring a great deal of background to students in a classroom, but they may have barriers to the ways they portray the field of science. This study used a multiple-case replication design to determine the role of epistemology in lesson plans of seven scientists becoming teachers. Data sources…

Duffin, Lisa C.; Starling, Michael P.; Day, Martha M.; Cribbs, Jennifer D. – School Science and Mathematics, 2016
The main purpose of this quantitative study was to examine the degree to which a three-week intervention in an urban high-needs high school science classroom would influence students' (n = 51) interest, utility value, content knowledge, and intentions for future study in chemistry. The intervention consisted of an authentic, inquiry-based…
