Here are some of the research projects carried out by the members of this SIG.
The aim of this interdisciplinary developmental and research project is to gain a deeper understanding of how students can be supported when moving between their everyday experiences and a scientific understanding of nature phenomena such as ’heat’. In our project we collaborate with teachers to find ways of working in conscious ways to represent the content through various semiotic resources such as verbal language, action, images, and models, including the use of metaphors.

This design research aims to examine physics and chemistry teachers’ current teaching practices and subsequently develop and evaluate pedagogical strategies to support their instructions on disciplinary literacy in science. Through the project, a number of disciplinary literacy interventions, such as the Premise-Reasoning-Outcome (PRO) Strategy and the Literacy-infused Inquiry Model, were developed, tested and evaluated.
