Luft, Julie A.; Whitworth, Brooke A. – Science Teacher, 2019
Science teachers need to consider how they want to grow professionally. Thinking about one's future involves identifying the knowledge, practices, and attributes needed in a new role. By using a framework such as the science education trajectory (SET), teachers can more easily consider their professional options and work strategically toward them.…

Ziffer, Julie; Morse, William; Nelson, Tyler; Nakroshis, Paul; Rudnick, Benjamin T.; Brautigam, Max; Parker, Wesley – Physics Teacher, 2019
Students with poor spatial abilities experience a barrier to academic success early in the STEM curriculum. However, Sorby et al. report that even brief training can improve spatial reasoning in students who lack them. Further, the National Research Council recommends that spatial thinking skills be taught at all educational levels. Halpern…

Kilmer, Nelson; Krehbiel, Joel D. – Physics Teacher, 2019
Gay-Lussac's law states that the pressure of an ideal gas is directly proportional to its absolute temperature if the volume is constant. Students observe this relationship by taking measurements on the pressure of gas in a flask or metal sphere at different temperatures and then extrapolate the data to estimate absolute zero. In our college…

Bradford, David L. – Journal of Management Education, 2019
Experiential activities are a powerful pedagogical tool that have grown in popularity. But there are a series of ethical issues (the "shadow side") that such activities raises. These include (a) inadequate (informed) student choice, (b) bias in what is covered, (c) lack of adequate debriefing, (d) personal exposure in class and…

Smith, Sue; Kempster, Steve; Wenger-Trayner, Etienne – Journal of Management Education, 2019
This article outlines how a community of practice can be designed within management education for effective leadership development. Through a qualitative study of a cohort of 25 owner-managers of small businesses, we explore how a program community of practice (PCoP) acts as a pedagogical device for focusing on the development of leadership…

Clapp-Smith, Rachel; Hammond, Michelle M.; Lester, Gretchen Vogelgesang; Palanski, Michael – Journal of Management Education, 2019
Empirical research suggests that focusing on one's identity as a leader may enhance ongoing leadership development. As a complement to traditional theory- and skills-based approaches to leader development, we offer an identity-based, multidomain approach to leadership development through a series of integrated in-class exercises. Specifically,…

Dye, Cristina; Kedar, Yarden; Lust, Barbara – First Language, 2019
Scholars of language development have long been challenged to understand the development of functional categories. Traditionally, it was assumed that children's language development initially relies on lexical elements, while functional elements become accessible only at later periods; and that it is lexical growth which bootstraps grammatical…

Kelly-McHale, Jacqueline – Update: Applications of Research in Music Education, 2019
The terms "culturally responsive teaching" and "culturally responsive pedagogy" have become more common in the vernacular of public-school teaching. However, practical applications of cultural responsivity are not often clearly presented due to the nature of being responsive. Responsivity requires knowledge of students and…

Millican, Si – Update: Applications of Research in Music Education, 2019
Rawlings recommended that music teachers should select pieces for large-ensemble adjudicated events that not only challenge student musicians but also help ensure student success and promote a positive experience preparing for and participating in the event. Ideally, the selections should balance the strengths of the ensemble with the challenges…

Merricks, Jessica; Lankford, Deanna – Science and Children, 2019
For some elementary science teachers, a unit on land and water brings nightmares of dirt and water all over the room. Several Earth science "kits" contain hands-on exercises that allow the students to "get messy" as they manipulate materials; however, these lessons may lack the necessary opportunities for students to ask unique…

Gençer, Hüseyin – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Individuals are always in interaction with other individuals outside, as well as in the group and with the group itself. This is why the social sciences emphasize the importance of group dynamics. After the 1990's, with the globalization, digitalization, changing political systems, goal or result-oriented approaches in many western countries, new…

Nicewander, W. Alan – Educational and Psychological Measurement, 2019
This inquiry is focused on three indicators of the precision of measurement--conditional on fixed values of ?, the latent variable of item response theory (IRT). The indicators that are compared are (1) The traditional, conditional standard errors, s(eX|?) = CSEM; (2) the IRT-based conditional standard errors, s[subscript irt](eX|?)=C[subscript…
