Abstract

This study aims to explore instructional strategies to manage students' scientific uncertainties in sensemaking activities in the science classroom. Sensemaking activities in four science teachers' classrooms were analyzed for this study, two from Korea and two from the USA. The analyzed data include video-recordings of classroom discourses. Six themes about features of teachers' instructional strategies that supported students' productive management of the uncertainties were identified through analysis.
