Abstract:During the second phase, the six participants in the two focus groups planned for selected science units and implemented these units in their classrooms. This phase aimed to investigate the impact of the intervention and acquired NOS understandings on participants' instructional planning and delivery related to NOS, and to understand the factors and scaffolds that mediate the translation of participants' understandings into practice. The data collected during this phase were derived from classroom observations, pre-post interviews, teachers' diaries, and instructional artifacts. (Abstract shortened by UMI.).
