This review, written to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the International Journal of Science Education, revealed a period of changes in the theoretical views of the language arts, the perceived roles of language in science education, and the research approaches used to investigate oral and written language in science, science teaching, and learning. The early years were dominated by behavioralis...

This article presents and discusses preliminary research on a new heuristic tool for learning from laboratory activities in secondary science. The tool, called the science writing heuristic, can be used by teachers as a framework from which to design classroom activities. Theoretically, the science writing heuristic represents a bridge between traditional laboratory reports and types of writing th...

Science laboratory activities within secondary science have traditionally followed prescriptive outlines both in the structure and reporting of the activity. Building on current understandings of writing to learn science strategies, a Science Writing Heuristic has been developed that encourages students to examine laboratory activities much more carefully in terms of having to justify their resear...

Science education reforms in Australia, Canada, England, New Zealand, and the United States promote a constructivist pedagogy of science leading to a contemporary view of science literacy. The reform documents provide somewhat fuzzy descriptions of critical philosophical, epistemological and pedagogical dimensions and underlying assumptions and relationships. An adequate conception of the desired ...

Abstract There is now considerable debate over the kinds of writing tasks that will enable secondary students to learn about science and to demonstrate scientific understanding. Advocates of modernist and postmodernist perspectives propose different genres as necessary to achieve very contrasting agendas. This paper presents an overview and analysis of the claims and counterclaims of these competi...

Although there is now strong support for the use of writing-to-learn in science, research in this field has tended to ignore the challenges facing teachers in developing new understandings and practices in relation to this use of writing. This paper reports on a 4-year study examining teachers' concerns in implementing writing-to-learn strategies within science classrooms based on using a model of...

The implementation of writing-for-learning strategies within science classrooms requires changes in the way in which students engage with the subject. Specific writing tasks require students to address concepts of science and also to focus on issues of purpose, audience, topic, method of text production, and writing type. This article reports on students' perceptions of using writing as a componen...
