Emergent Science is essential reading for anyone involved in supporting scientific learning and development with young children aged between birth and 8. Drawing on theory, the book helps to develop the essential skills needed to understand and support science in this age range.
Jane Johnston has recently retired as a Reader in Education at Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln. She has extensive teaching and writing experience in early years science, coordinates the international emergent science research network, is co-editor of the Journal of Emergent Science and coordinator for the early years special interest group of the European Science Education Research Association (ESERA). In 2006 she was one of the first of five teachers to be awarded Chartered Science Teacher status in the UK.
TheJournal of Emergent Science (JES) has a research focus on primary aged learnersand we see it as a pivotal step in supporting and promoting research amongstpractising teachers. By having open access to JES, teachers will be able toaccess evidence-based research that will inform their teaching practices. Wewould like to welcome Dr. Sarah Earle as the new editor from September 2020.
Building on the previous issue's sustainability theme, this issue includes two further articles on the topic, covering placing environmental consciousness as a foundation for the three pillars of sustainability, and also a scheme of work to look at the effects of fast fashion. There are also articles on Embodied Learning, teaching physics through dance and an exploration of what examining teacher nominations for a science prize can tell us about perceptions of primary science over time. In addition, there is an update from PSTT regarding the Explorify scheme.
The aim of JES is to draw together research from across the early years and primary sectors, providing support for those involved in science education for children from birth to 11 years of age - supported by the Primary Science Teaching Trust, this is the only ASE journal to be open to all. This issue, the first from new Editor, Sarah Earle, categorises the articles as Original Research, Research Review and Research Guidance, and covers such topics as 'hearing' air pollution, learning in maths and science and neuroscience, amongst others.
The latest issue of this open access journal features a range of articles covering research in primary education, both from a researcher and a practitioner point of view. Topics include investigations using Santorio's 17th century pulsilogium, taking part in a free-choice museum activity in the early years, stereotypical images of scientists in young children's picture books, cutting-edge research to help primary teaching and the impact of Science Days/Weeks on primary science.
This issue of JES features four more abstracts from the 2017 ESERA Conference, covering such topics as the perception of Spanish teachers during initial teacher training, knowledge and the 'knower', pre-school teaching quality and computational thinking in kindergartens. We also have some articles based on practitioner experience of research and its impact in schools, one on the applications of simple machines and another on outdoor learning. We also introduce a new section covering early years and primary science in an international context, beginning with teacher and technician training in Australia.
June 2014 (Issue 7) - The Journal of Emergent Science (JES) is a biannual publication produced by the Emergent Science Network that focuses on effective early years science practice. This issue's main article investigates using drama techniques when teaching science in the early years. This issue looks at relevant research papers presented at the ICASE World Science Conference 2013 and ESERA Conference 2013.
Winter edition of JES, no. 4. The Journal of Emergent Science is a professional research e-journal published by the Emergent Science Network in collaboration with ASE. The journal focuses on science (including health, technology and engineering) for young children from birth to 8 years of age. Subscribers and ASE members must log into the ASE website to access the full journal.

The science classroom is often a frustrating place for English language learners. Science has a complex vocabulary that is difficult even for native English speakers to learn. Difficulty learning English should not be confused with an inability to think scientifically. Many of the strategies that are useful for English language learners are effective for differentiating instruction for other students as well. Use a variety of methods to see which work best with your teaching style and students.
The term translanguaging comes from a holistic view of bilinguals. This view recognizes that bilinguals have just one language system, not two or more, and that effective instruction involves finding ways to help students draw on all their linguistic resources, their full repertoire, to learn academic content in a new language. While students do need solid and extended instruction in English to acquire English, strategic use of their home language can accelerate both their acquisition of English and their understanding of math, science, social studies, and language arts being taught in the new language.
The early childhood education (ECE) major prepares graduates to work with a diverse population of young children and families using research-based, developmentally appropriate educational practices. The ECE major is a teacher preparation program accredited by The National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), with curricular emphasis on the years spanning birth to age five. Experiential learning activities, assessments, and classroom practicum experiences with children in birth to pre-K settings are provided for all students. The knowledge and skills that ECE students learn help prepare them to teach in a variety of early learning programs, such as programs that use emergent curriculum, Pre-K programs housed in public schools, private childcare programs, faith-based programs, community-based programs, and others. Students also are prepared for non-teaching careers as early interventionists, case managers, employees for non-profit organizations, and curriculum specialists. Eligible students may also apply for teacher certification (Birth to PreK Child Development Certificate) to work in public Pre-K classrooms in Alabama. This major has a one-semester internship requirement.
The Bachelor of Science in Education (Early Childhood Unified) will prepare you for a career in early childhood programs, serving as a teacher, administrator, or coordinator (the "unified" portion of this degree includes Special Education coursework). According to the Kansas Department of Education, teachers with an early childhood unified endorsement can teach regular and special education at the birth to third-grade level. The BS in Early Childhood Unified education will allow you to seek licensure that can be used to enter into education-related occupations serving children and families from birth to age 8 (third grade). The Early Childhood Unified teacher education program is an online program, with some courses also offered on campus. The program provides both internship and student teaching experiences in diverse environments.
This major leads to licensure for teaching young children from birth through grade 3, with an emphasis on working in inclusive settings. The student will complete the UNIFI/General Education requirements, the Professional Education Requirements, the specified major requirements, plus electives to complete a minimum of 120 hours. The prescribed program is as follows:
This major leads to licensure for teaching young children from birth through grade 3, with an emphasis on working in inclusive settings (endorsement #1001 PK-3 Birth through grade three, Inclusive Settings). Early childhood education majors engage in a blended curriculum that prepares them for both general education and special education positions in early childhood settings. 2b1af7f3a8
