STRAND: Students and Sensemaking: Promoting Science and STEM Teaching Strategies That Place Equity at the Center of Learning

Show Details

The goal of the study was to compare how visual representations were integrated into the content of middle school life science textbooks.

TAKEAWAYS:
While most of the visual representations are completely linked and related to the content, there is still some room for improvement in making them more complementary than explanatory, which has added benefits.
