A reformed view of science education positions argumentation as a central epistemic discourse practice in the science classroom, however, science education researchers have found that typical norms...

Abstract Canadian provincial governments have introduced voluntary nutrition guidelines for recreation and sport facilities to promote healthy dietary patterns in children. This paper presents baseline data from the Eat, Play, Live (EPL) randomized controlled trial to examine whether facilities in guideline provinces had greater capacity, more nutrition policies, and healthier food environments than facilities in a province without guidelines. Facility capacity, policy development, and food envi...

This chapter outlines Glasser’s choice theory (CT), explores connections to other relevant learning theories, and suggests this theory can be applied to the classroom and more specifically to the competencies often considered in a science classroom. CT is an internal control theory that helps explain how and why we make decisions within science classrooms. The chapter also offers ways to ameliorate what Glasser calls schooling, or the practice of making students acquire facts and information tha...

Abstract This study explored the influence of healthy vending contracts (HVC) on the nutritional quality of vending machine products in 46 Canadian publicly funded recreation and sport facilities. A quasi-experimental comparison design was used to examine the difference in nutritional quality of snack and beverage vending machine products at baseline (December 2015–May 2016) and 18-month follow-up. Staff Surveys assessed facility contract type (HVC or conventional) and vending machine audits ide...

Background Recreation and sport facilities often have unhealthy food environments that may promote unhealthy dietary patterns among children. In response, some Canadian provinces have released voluntary nutrition guidelines for recreation and sport facilities, however implementation has been limited. Organizational capacity building may overcome barriers to implementing guidelines. Eat, Play, Live was a randomized controlled trial embedded within a natural experiment that tested the impact of an...

Self-regulation of learning (SRL) involves students controlling of their own cognition, behaviour, emotions and motivation through metacognitive awareness of their conditions and situations (Winne & Hadwin, 1998). While this self-reflective process is argued to be adaptive, students may also exhibit maladaptive responses through poorly orchestrated SRL skills. What is considered maladaptive, however, may be relative to one’s goal; the same behaviour can be adaptive in one’s current context but m...

Canada is a country with an international reputation for strong science achievement; as such, it can offer insight into effective policies, structures, and pedagogies. However, there is scant literature on science education in Canada in general; and the specific aspects of science curriculum and science teacher education—both preservice and inservice—are even more limited. Some publications have addressed science teacher education in Canada, but much of this literature has been on a macro level,...
