Abstract

Today’s society needs citizens who are familiar with the scientific way of thinking, and can use it in everyday lives. Therefore, science education aims to engage students in socio-scientific issues (SSI). In this study, two teachers used an ENGAGE material with 53 students to teach SSI. The study aims to investigate how successful the Engage material is in engaging students in SSI, that is, connecting this with chemistry knowledge, personal life and society. ‘The Learner Report’ of De Groot was used to gather the data, and these data were analyzed by qualitative content analysis, using Atlas.ti software. The findings indicate remarkable influence of the ENGAGE materials on students’ learning related to SSI.
