    Instructors’ Rationales and Strategies for Teaching History of Science in Preservice Settings.Noushin Nouri, William F. McComas & Gerardo J. Aponte-Martinez - 2019 - Science & Education 28 (3-5):367-389.
    This multiple-case study examined the rationales and instructional strategies for teaching history of science of 16 instructors of a history of science course for undergraduate preservice teachers in the USA. Based on instructor syllabi, instructional materials, and instructor interviews, we conducted single-case and cross-case analyses to identify why they teach HOS, how they teach HOS, and what possible relationships might underlie instructor rationales and their instructional strategy choices for teaching HOS. We found 10 rationales in three overarching categories and 9 (...)

    Charles Darwin and Evolution: Illustrating Human Aspects of Science. [REVIEW]Kostas Kampourakis & William F. McComas - 2010 - Science & Education 19 (6-8):637-654.
    Recently, the nature of science (NOS) has become recognized as an important element within the K-12 science curriculum. Despite differences in the ultimate lists of recommended aspects, a consensus is emerging on what specific NOS elements should be the focus of science instruction and inform textbook writers and curriculum developers. In this article, we suggest a contextualized, explicit approach addressing one core NOS aspect: the human aspects of science that include the domains of creativity, social influences and subjectivity. To illustrate (...)
