This report presents the results of a study of eighth-grade science teaching, conducted as part of the Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) 1999 Video Study. The Video Study is a supplement to the TIMSS 1999 student assessment, a successor to the TIMSS 1995 student assessment. The TIMSS 1999 Video Study had the broad purpose of investigating and describing teaching practices in eighth-grade mathematics and science in a variety of countries. Results for the science portion are presented in this report and in a summary document entitled "Highlights From the TIMSS 1999 Video Study of Eighth-Grade Science Teaching (Roth et al.2006)." The TIMSS 1999 Video Study of science teaching included the participation of five countries: Australia, the Czech Republic, Japan, the Netherlands, and the United States. It had the following broad objectives: (1) Develop objective, observable measures of classroom instruction that can be quantified appropriately to develop indicators of eighth-grade science teaching practices in each country; (2) Describe patterns of science teaching practices within each country; and (3) Compare science teaching practices between countries and identify similarities and differences in lesson features across countries, with a focus on differences between higher and lower-achieving countries. Building on the interest generated by the TIMSS 1995 Video Study of mathematics teaching, the TIMSS 1999 Video Study of mathematics and science teaching had a final objective regarding effective use of the information: (1) To develop methods for communicating the results of the study, through written reports and video cases, for both research and professional development purposes. The results of the TIMSS 1999 Video Study Science suggest characteristic patterns of eighth grade science teaching in each of the participating countries and are suggestive of the potentially important role of content and a core instructional approach in student learning and achievement. (Contains 5 chapters of tables.) Appended are: (A) Sampling, Data Collection and Coding, Reliability, and Statistical Analyses; (B) Participants in the TIMSS 1999 Video Study of Science Teaching; (C) Standard Errors for Estimates Shown in Figures and Tables; and (D) Definitions of Constructs and Variables Used in Analyses.

Graphic novels are an excellent medium to motivate today’s youth to become independent learners and thinkers. This practical guide shows secondary school teachers how to incorporate graphic novels into content area instruction as a tool for meeting the needs of diverse learners and achieving the goals of the Common Core State Standards. The authors provide instructional guidelines with classroom examples that demonstrate how graphic novels can be used to expand content knowledge and literacy in science, social studies, math, and English/language arts. Teachers will appreciate the book’s specific suggestions for selecting graphic novels and for employing responsive practices that will build students’ reading, writing, speaking, listening, and media competencies. “The range and complexity of graphic novels being published right now is simply amazing to me. . . . They are part of what should be a balanced array of texts that all can read, enjoy, and learn from. In this volume, the authors point to this proliferation, as well as the educative potential of graphic novels. After reading its pages, I feel others will agree with me that they have done an excellent job pointing out how graphic novel creators such as Jim Ottaviani and Larry Gonick communicate much about history, science, and mathematics while also making connections to comprehension and thinking skills that accompany both literacy and content-specific learning.” —From the Foreword by Stergios Botzakis, assistant professor of adolescent literacy in the Theory and Practice in Teacher Education Department at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville “The authors have set forth on a task I feel long is overdu—connecting the literacy potential of graphic novels to the content areas. This book is a wonderful contribution to the field of content area literacy studies.” —Michael D. Boatright, assistant professor, Department of English, Western Carolina University Book Features: Advice for selecting and evaluating graphic novels. Teaching strategies for each of the four major content domains. Guidance for aligning instruction with the Common Core State Standards. A list of educational graphic novels organized by content area. Study group questions.And more! William G.
