|Judul||:||Pre-Service Science Teachers Socioscientific Argumentation: A Decision Regarding Nuclear Power Plant|
This study aims to explore the quality of socioscientific argumentation of pre-service science teachers (PSTs) about nuclear power plant issue in Indonesia. A total of 72 pre-service science teachers were involved in this study as the participant, which composed of 23 first-year students (FS), 28 second-year students (SS), and 21 third-year students (TS). The quality of socioscientific argumentation was analyzed by component and coherence argument aspects. The result showed that third-year students were more competent to propose an argument than first-year students and second-year students, but second-year students were more able to produce a coherent argument than first-year students and third-year students. These indicated that argumentation skills developed through the process of practice and experience, whereas the coherency of argument was affected by students’ understanding of nuclear power plant concept. Therefore, learning activities should be fostering students to understand the content of science and engaging student to socioscientific issues, so they will be able to make a logical decision and argumentation when grappled with controversial issues.
