About this journal. Chemistry is the study of chemicals and the elements and their effects and attributes. Students in chemistry learn the periodic table. The branch of science education known as “chemistry must be taught in a relevant context in order to promote full understanding of current sustainability issues.” 12 As this source states chemistry is a very important subject in school as it teaches students to understand issues in the world. As children are interested by the world around them chemistry teachers can attract interest in turn educating the students further. 13 The subject of chemistry is a very practical based subject meaning most of class time is spent working or completing experiments.

The Journal of Technology and Science Education (JOTSE) has been created as a contribution to the development and improvement of scientific and technological education by constituting a common space to share experiences to all those who, somehow, are involved in the teaching and learning processes of engineering studies, in all modalities. In the international arena, the United States ranks low among developed countries with respect to teachers’ salaries relative to the salaries of other college-educated workers. For primary school teachers, the U.S. ranking is 20th of 23 countries. For lower and upper secondary school teachers, the United States is 21st of 23 countries. E. 1981. What Research Says to the Science Teacher. Washington, DC: National Science Teachers Association.

Traditionally the high school curriculum has consisted of physics in grade twelve, chemistry in grade eleven, and biology in grade ten. Often schools have moved to second-level courses in each of these … Read more


The Science Education MA aims to reflect contemporary theory in all aspects of practice in science education: international, formal and informal. E. 1998. Translating and Using Research for Improving Teacher Education in Science and Mathematics (SALISH II). Iowa City: University of Iowa, Science Education Center. Taking statements of goals seriously is another trend. Goals can and should provide the framework for the curriculum, indicate the instruction selected, and provide form and structure for evaluating successes and failures. Each of these critical factors provides a basis for doing science in education.

This strand includes students’ understanding of the norms of participating in science as well as their motivation and attitudes toward science. Students who see science as valuable and interesting tend to be good learners and participants in science. They believe that steady effort in understanding science pays off—not that some people understand science and other people never will. To engage … Read more

Journal On Efficiency And Responsibility In Education And Science

The Center for Mathematics and Science Education Research (CMSER) coordinates research, teacher education, curriculum development and implementation, and dissemination efforts in mathematics and science education, and fosters rich partnerships with educational institutions and organizations throughout the Milwaukee metropolitan area. Which is why it’s curious that competitions like the International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF)—whose contestants each year vie for more than $5 million total in prizes, including $75,000 for the top winner—haven’t quite captured the public imagination. That may soon change. A new documentary follows a handful of teens who participated in last year’s ISEF, along with the no-nonsense Long Island, New York, teacher who managed to help nine of her students qualify for the competition.

The journal was published by IJESE (from 2006 to 2013) and ISER-International Society of Educational Research(from 2014 to 2016). Curious Minds targets high-achieving female students in Years 9 and 10 through a series of … Read more

AAAS programs conduct educational research and development, provide resources for the classroom and other science learning settings and offer professional development for teachers. Opportunities for teachers to engage in professional learning and development can have a big impact on student learning. Students with good teachers can make progress twice as fast as those without. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), job opportunities for post-secondary teachers were expected to grow by 19% from 2012 to 2022 (). In May 2014, post-secondary teachers who taught education-related subjects earned a mean annual income of $65,180, according to the BLS.

The developmental literature related to this fundamental aspect of scientific reasoning is more complex, with some studies in support of the Benchmarks stance and some studies suggesting greater competence. For example, Kuhn, Amsel, and ‘Loughlin (1988) conclude that, in the preadolescent, theory and evidence meld into a single representation as ‘the … Read more
