This commentary situates, summarizes, and critiques the global attempts, as documented in this book, to address the complex language/literacy-science education problem space involving curriculum, integrated learning, classroom practices, challenges, instruction embedded in an inquiry-oriented context, and teacher education and development issues focused on the fundamental sense of science literacy. Few science education policies or curriculum documents recognize a contemporary view of learning s...

ABSTRACTThis study of three science teachers’ lessons on heat and temperature seeks to characterise classroom talk that highlighted the ways language is used and to examine the nature of the language demands revealed in constructing, negotiating, arguing and communicating science ideas. The transcripts from the entire instructional units for these teachers’ four culturally and linguistically diverse Grade 4 classes (10 years old) with English as the language of instruction constitute the data fo...

This reflection considers the array of women, men, and events that have contributed to the research and development of science education in Taiwan during the last 50 years. The chapter explores the documents, programs, institutions, and scholars that have influenced science education in Taiwan at the local, national, and international levels. In this chapter, the authors begin their study by discussing the successes, challenges, and promises of science education in Taiwan via e-mail and face-to-...

ABSTRACTThere appears to be a complex network of cognitive and affective factors that influence students’ decisions to study science and motivate their choices to engage in science-oriented careers. This study explored 330 Taiwanese senior high school students’ awareness of their science teacher’s learning leadership and how it relates to the students’ attitudes toward science and positive thinking. Initial results revealed that the optimism of positive thinking is highly and positively correlat...

Common core standards, interdisciplinary education, and discipline-specific literacy are common international education reforms. The constructive–interpretative language arts pairs (speaking–listening, writing–reading, representing–viewing) and the communication, construction, and persuasion functions of language are central in these movements. This research developed and validated a communication progression in science education for elementary–secondary schooling in Taiwan. The framework for th...

Comic books possessing the features of humour, narrative, and visual representation are deemed as a potential medium for science communication; however, empirical studies exploring the effects of comics are scarce. The purposes of this study were to examine and compare the impacts of a comic book and a text booklet on conveying the concepts of nanotechnology and to investigate public perceptions of using comics as a tool for science communication. A mixed-methods quasi-experimental design was us...

This study investigated a model of the associations between personality traits of male and female college students in Taiwan and their self-worth using structural equation modeling (SEM). College students (1,305 males and 1,494 females) were stratified randomly selected from 12 universities to complete the College Students Questionnaire. SEM results supported the model and network of paths amongst these participating students’ self-worth and the Big-five personality traits. Results indicated sig...
