Abstract: Singing, involving human voice and sound, is one of musical esthetic and creative activities of human beings. And as a unique human art, it has everything to do with science. However, singing and science belong to different domains and categories. Singing, one form of art, is a special method for people to understand the world by appealing to emotion and imagination. Actually it is in the pursuit of esthetic and style diversities. But science is going in for the regular cognition–from the phenomenon to the nature of things in the external world. In fact it is one kind of knowledge system and often depends on such thinking patterns as categories, theorems, and laws to reflect the essences and rules of various phenomena in the real world. Singing art focuses on the pursuit of diversities and richness, whereas, science emphasizes uniqueness, repeatability, and exclusiveness of subjective and objective conditions, which are always hard to be compatible and coordinate. Obviously plenty of disciplinary scientific knowledge, theories, and methods are certainly involved in the processes of singing. But if singing methods are to be scientifically defined, such definitions will not be accurate and complete. Therefore, concepts of “scientific singing methods”, with evident exclusiveness, will be sure to go against rich ecological culture which contributes a lot to singing styles as well as methods. In essence, the very definition originates from wrong ideas existing in European dominant culture, of which we should have a strong awareness all the time.

Abstract: Shifts in English/Language Arts standards for the Common Core State Standards require teachers to read more nonfiction texts, increase instruction for content-area specific subjects, and to read more complex texts. The goal of our research was to evaluate the impact of high quality nonfiction picture books on elementary children's understandings of scientific topics related to the natural world. Six high-level kindergarten students at a STEM elementary school were invited to participate in a seven-week long study where students explored scientific topics. The hands-on activities and read alouds were based on books in the Next Time You See series by Emily Morgan, published by the NSTA. Pre/post tests and interviews with each child were conducted to learn more about how each student valued science and learned more about scientific topics. Findings showed an increase in content knowledge and more positive feelings toward forming scientific explanations and communicating scientific understanding.

Abstract: Science journalists are responsible for the mass media’s representation of life sciences (e.g., biotechnology, genetics, nanotechnology), and for the depiction of research findings in these areas as more scientifically (un)certain. Although researchers have determined that the representational styles of scientific evidence vary among science journalists, the reasons for these differences have not yet been fully investigated. Against this background, for the first time the present study applies a reasoned action approach and investigates the predictors of the journalistic intention to represent scientific uncertainty. This was done using computer-assisted telephone interviews with a representative sample of German science journalists (n = 202). The results indicate that beliefs about the coverage of other media, perceptions regarding the scientific uncertainty of the main field of coverage, perceived expectations of the audience, past behavior, and gender were the predictors that most strongly affected the journalists’ intention to represent life sciences as more scientifically uncertain.
