This brief endeavors to distill the research on science learning to inform a common vision of science instruction and to describe the extent to which K-12 science education currently reflects this vision. A final section on implications for policymakers and science education practitioners describes actions that could integrate the findings from research into science education.

This Second Edition of Effective Science Instruction: What Does Research Tell Us? provides more detailed information for users. In addition to updated examples, it describes the schema theory of learning and how each element plays a role in developing conceptual understanding. The summary section notes the overlap between the elements in science instruction.

The Center on Instruction hosted a workshop in May 2008 that highlighted the material in this brief. PowerPoint presentations and handouts from this meeting can be downloaded here.
