Exploring representation of nature of science aspects in science textbooks
Yamak, Yeliz; Çakıroğlu, Jale; Department of Elementary Science and Mathematics Education (2009)
The aim of this study was to examine middle school science textbooks according to some criteria in terms of nature of science (NOS). A total of three middle school science textbooks in 6th, 7th and 8th grade and two biology units were analyzed in each textbook. In the 6th grade science textbooks, “Reproduction, Development and Growth in Living Beings”and “Systems in Our Body” units, in the 7th grade science textbook, “Systems in Our Body” and “Human and Environment” units, in the 8th grade science textbook,...

Hoş, Gülsüm; Erdiller Akın, Zeynep Berna; Department of Educational Sciences (2008)
We live together in society that is composed of individuals who have normal development and individuals who have some developmental delays or disabilities. Therefore, it is important to know and understand what disability is and how it affects the lives of the family members individually also a mother and family as whole. O'Connor (2002) indicates that being a parent of a child who has a developmental delay is a challenge for the parents. This qualitative, mother-focused study examines the experiences of a ...
Examining the mediating effect of science self-efficacy on the relationship between metavariables and science achievement
Kirbulut, Zubeyde Demet; Kondakçı, Esen (Informa UK Limited, 2019-05-24)
Current studies reveal that meta-level variables are very important in learning; however, little research has been devoted to the role of metaconceptual and meta-affective variables on student achievement. With the aim of filling this gap in the literature, the present study investigated the relationship between metavariables (metaconceptual awareness, metaconceptual regulation, affective awareness, and affective regulation) and science achievement with the mediating effect of science self-efficacy through ...
Exploring the development of pre-service science teachers’ views on nature of science in inquiry-based laboratory instruction
Özgelen, Sinan; Yılmaz Tüzün, Özgül; Department of Educational Sciences (2010)
The purposes of this study were to explore understanding of preservice science teachers’ (PSTs) nature of science (NOS) views during the explicit-reflective and inquiry-based laboratory instruction and investigate PSTs’ perspectives and experiences related to learning NOS aspects in the science laboratory course. This study was carried out during the Laboratory Application in Science II course. A total of 45 PSTs participated to the study. The design of the study was qualitative and exploratory in nature. I...
Investigating the Relationships Among Elementary School Students Epistemological Beliefs Metacognition and Constructivist Science Learning Environment
TOPÇU, MUSTAFA SAMİ; Yılmaz Tüzün, Özgül (Informa UK Limited, 2010-03-01)
The research questions addressed in this study were: what types of epistemological beliefs do elementary students have; what types of metacognition do elementary students have; and what are the relationships among students’ perceived characteristics of constructivist learning environment, metacognition, and epistemological beliefs. A total of 626 students enrolled in sixth, seventh, and eight grades of nine elementaryPUBLIC schools located in Ankara, Turkey constituted the participants of this study. Constr...
