Teaching and Learning Science in an Urban School: Analogy as a Key to Communal Science Pedagogy
Emdin, Christopher
Online Yearbook of Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research, p46-52 2006
This article articulates the results of an ongoing study in an urban school in New York City in which student and teacher researchers engage in practices that support the science success of the schools' predominantly Latino/a and African American population. By situating the study in the nature of corporate and communal practices, the article demonstrates the necessity for an expansion of approaches to teaching and learning that includes students' ways of knowing. Furthermore, the article shows the emergence of analogy as an outcome of embracing communal teaching practices.
