Drawn to Science Education: Studying Science Teaching and Learning through Drawings
Drawing of students learning science by study participant.  

Teacher: Paula

"Draw yourself teaching science."

Strand 1: Experience excitement, interest and motivation to learn about phenomena in the natural and physical world.

Score = 1

A score of one indicates negative facial expressions or comments suggesting boredom, lack of interest or motivation. In this drawing, the teacher and students appear to be engaged in a number of science activities. The teacher demonstrates for the class while the students participate in other activities such as creating a volcano. This drawing received a score of 1 because two of the students were illustrated with negative expressions. One student was drawn with a squiggly mouth and a comment bubble stating "yuck." A second student was illustrated covering her mouth and gasping. We perceived these negative facial expressions as evidence for a score of one for this drawing.
