This Science Feature Issue is intended for individuals engaged in teaching and research of formal or informal K-16 science education incorporating traditional and nontraditional ways of knowing. Topics of inquiry should include transformative efforts meant to change the way science-learning environments are constructed in order to develop and encourage inclusiveness and engagement for all learners. These transformative efforts should challenge the paradigm of teaching as telling and learning as listening or passive reception of received knowledge. Examples include, studies that utilized the everyday knowledge and experiences of the learner as the context upon which science inquiry skills could be developed, or that show how authentic images of scientific practice could serve as a context of developing learning environments in science. In addition, transformative efforts may include studies that focus on the identity development of the teachers or instructors. We believe transformative efforts can take place in learning environments impacted by the perceived constraints of science standards and benchmarks. Thus, we expect authors to address how their efforts are aligned or address standards, benchmarks, and/or educational expectations within target settings.
