Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

As science classrooms are reformed to involve learners in science practices, these new classroom interactions require dramatic shifts for many science classrooms. This shift in classroom norms requires students to shift their understanding of the goals of their work and their roles in building knowledge. It is critical to understand the tensions that emerge for students as they adjust to this new environment in order to better support this transformation.
