Alcantara, Marlon C.; Braga, Marco; van den Heuvel, Charles – Science & Education, 2020
This paper discusses the potential of the creation and analysis of historical networks as didactic strategies in science education. To this end, we first argue the importance of combining critical approaches of the history of science with historical network research. This will be followed by a report of an empirical experiment in which the history…

Ariely, Moriah; Livnat, Zohar; Yarden, Anat – Science & Education, 2019
Learning the unique linguistic forms and structures that construct and communicate scientific principles, knowledge, and beliefs is important for developing students' disciplinary literacy. The use of scientific language is apparent in the texts that scientists produce to communicate their findings to other scientists--the research articles. Texts…

Park, Wonyong; Yang, Seungran; Song, Jinwoong – Science & Education, 2019
The social reaction to the recent detection of the Higgs boson and gravitational waves provided evidence that public interest in modern physics has reached a high point. Although these modern physics topics are being introduced into the upper secondary physics curricula in a growing number of countries, their potential for teaching various aspects…

Rizos, Ioannis; Patronis, Anastasios; Lappas, Dionyssios – Science & Education, 2017
In this paper, we analyze two episodes from an inquiry-based didactical research; the complete analysis of our research data is still ongoing. By taking into consideration various developments from the history of the geometry of space-time, our general aim is to explore high school students' conceptions about measurement of length and time in…

Rosenhouse, Jason – Science & Education, 2016
The teaching of evolution in American high schools has long been a source of controversy. The past decade has seen an important shift in the rhetoric of anti-evolutionists, toward arguments of a strongly mathematical character. These mathematical arguments, while different in their specifics, follow the same general program and rely on the same…

Serder, Margareta; Jakobsson, Anders – Science Education, 2016
Previous research in science education has suggested that difficulties among students learning science relate to challenges in framing its discourse. This article examines the role that language plays in a scientific literacy test for which everyday life is an augmented aspect. Video-recorded data was collected in four ninth-grade science classes…

Konneman, Christiane; Asshoff, Roman; Hammann, Marcus – Science Education, 2016
The main aim of this paper is to describe high school students' attitudes concerning evolution and creation, with a focus on (1) attitudes toward evolutionary theory, (2) attitudes toward the Biblical accounts of creation, (3) creationist beliefs, and (4) scientistic beliefs. Latent class analyses revealed seven attitude profiles in a sample of…

Gim, Jinyeong – Science & Education, 2016
South Korean high school students are being taught Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity. In this article, I examine the portrayal of this theory in South Korean high school physics textbooks and discuss an alternative method used to solve the analyzed problems. This examination of how these South Korean textbooks present this theory has…

Bellocchi, Alberto; Davis, James P.; Olson, Rebecca E.; Appanna, Subhashni D. – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Amy Goods's software review article "V-Note: A video analysis tool for teacher | researchers" stimulated our interest in adopting this software to understand social bonding dynamics in a group of 10th-grade science students' during a science inquiry project. Three of us employed V-Note to analyze two video files for the same lesson in…

Kohut, Michael – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2019
Recommendations for teaching the nature of science (NOS) are grounded in a deficit view of students and/or the public--wherein people accept pseudoscientific claims, particularly about evolution, because they do not adequately understand what counts as being "scientific." Under the deficit view, correct views of science are defined by…

Roth, Wolff-Michael; Jornet, Alfredo – Science Education, 2014
"Experience" is one of the most used terms in (science) education, and it is recognized as being related to learning (education). Yet "what" experience is and "how" it is related to learning and change remains untheorized. In this paper, we mainly draw on the work of J. Dewey and L. S. Vygotsky but also on M. Bakhtin…

Bennett, Judith; Dunlop, Lynda; Knox, Kerry J.; Reiss, Michael J.; Torrance Jenkins, Rebecca – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
Practical independent research projects (IRPs) are a feature of school science in a number of countries. To assess the impact of IRPs on students, a systematic review of the literature was undertaken. Thirty-nine papers met the review inclusion criteria, reporting on work from twelve countries. The review indicates that IRPs are often associated…

Martins, André Ferrer Pinto – Research in Science Education, 2016
The importance of knowledge about science is well established, and it has a long history in the area of science education. More recently, the specialized literature has highlighted the search for consensus in relation to what should be taught in this regard, that is, what should compose the science curricula of elementary and high school levels.…

Bass, Kristin M.; Drits-Esser, Dina; Stark, Louisa A. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2016
The credibility of conclusions made about the effectiveness of educational interventions depends greatly on the quality of the assessments used to measure learning gains. This essay, intended for faculty involved in small-scale projects, courses, or educational research, provides a step-by-step guide to the process of developing, scoring, and…

Maienschein, Jane; Wellner, Karen – Science & Education, 2013
It might seem that an embryo is an embryo, and that there would be a fact of the matter. That seems especially true with respect to the way embryos are presented in textbooks, including high school biology textbooks. This paper looks at three co-existing, competing, and often conflicting views of embryos. Then with a close study of twentieth…
