Lindholm, Tuula; Myles, Johanne Mednick – TESOL Press, 2019
Teachers are cultural informants. The resources teachers use and their interactions with students convey meanings that are both linguistic and cultural. It is important for ESOL teachers to guide students toward integrated intercultural/language learning that will carry them through diverse life experiences. This book goes beyond theoretical…

Jagla, Virginia M., Ed.; Tice, Kathleen C., Ed. – IAP - Information Age Publishing, Inc., 2019
Service-learning is a powerful method of teaching and learning that has been used effectively for more than two decades. This volume contributes further to the Advances in Service-Learning Research series that focuses upon service-learning in teacher education. Research and theory indicate that knowledge of service-learning pedagogy and how to…

de Oliveira, Luciana C., Ed.; Smith, Blaine E., Ed. – IAP - Information Age Publishing, Inc., 2019
Literacy practices have changed over the past several years to incorporate modes of representation much broader than language alone, in which the textual is also related to the visual, the audio, the spatial, etc. This book focuses on research and instructional practices necessary for integrating an expanded view of literacy in the classroom that…

Horowitz, Gail – IAP - Information Age Publishing, Inc., 2019
Do you ever feel like more and more of your students come to your classroom not knowing how to study or what to do in order to be successful in your class? Some students come to college knowing the ropes, knowing what it takes to be successful as STEM students. But many do not. Research shows that students who are the first-generation in their…

Zimmerle, Joanna C.; Wall, Anne S. – Computers in the Schools, 2019
Although the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) was enacted 20 years ago, the recently updated General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has renewed public interest in privacy policies. Under both COPPA and GDPR, companies must abide by strict regulations protecting children's personal data. Lengthy and oftentimes ambiguous policies…

Uddin, Zaheer; Zaheer, Muhammad Hani – Physics Teacher, 2019
In this paper, we present a demonstration of Ohm's law on a spreadsheet. Students can perform an experiment of Ohm's law like they perform in laboratories. The only difference is that the apparatus is virtual. The students record readings of current through the circuit and potential difference across a resistor. A graph is drawn between I and V to…

Kohnle, Antje; Jackson, Alexander; Paetkau, Mark – Physics Teacher, 2019
Learning introductory quantum physics is challenging, in part due to the different paradigms in classical mechanics and quantum physics. Classical mechanics is deterministic in that the equations of motion and the initial conditions fully determine a particle's trajectory. Quantum physics is an inherently probabilistic theory in that only…

Uchida, Satoko – Physics Teacher, 2019
Practical hands-on experience is an effective component of science education. Lessons that involve demonstrations allow learners to explore and verify information learned from other sources (for example, reading a textbook). As a demonstration for use in a science educational setting, we developed a way to make a variable focal length lens using a…

Rubin, Scott – Physics Teacher, 2019
The stereotypical situation of a snowball picking up both mass and speed as it rolls without slipping down a hill provides an opportunity to explore the general form of both translational and rotational versions of Newton's second law through multivariable differential equations. With a few reasonable assumptions, it can be shown that the snowball…

Johnson, Heather Lynn; Dunlap, Joanna C.; Verma, Geeta; McClintock, Evan; DeBay, Dennis J.; Bourdeaux, Brandy – TechTrends: Linking Research and Practice to Improve Learning, 2019
In this article, we share design guidelines for the development and use of online, video-based "teaching playgrounds," which provide opportunities for prospective teachers to engage in professional noticing of teaching practices. Through teaching playgrounds, we provide an instantiation of the Presence+Experience framework, which…

Manrique, Irany Vera; Gutiérrez, Gabriela Rivadeneyra; González, David Alejandro Martínez – Physics Teacher, 2019
This article describes an experiment that can be done in the classroom in a simple way, with the support of a "homemade" device or as a laboratory practice with the support of PASCO equipment. Through a theory-practice sequence, kinematic and dynamic equations were checked with qualitative and quantitative analysis, emphasizing the…

Pili, Unofre; Violanda, Renante – Physics Teacher, 2019
In introductory physics laboratories, spring constants are traditionally measured using the static method. The dynamic method, via vertical spring-mass oscillator, that uses a stopwatch in order to measure the period of oscillations is also commonly employed. However, this time-measuring technique is prone to human errors and in this paper we…

Like, Christopher; Morgan, Jeffrey; Escalada, Lawrence; Burns, Les – Physics Teacher, 2019
The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) require teachers to think very carefully about the structure of lessons, which content must be taught to allow students to achieve NGSS expectations, and how content is delivered. With the standards' focus on three-dimensional learning and the use of relevant phenomena, most teachers are urged to make…

Blackwell, William H.; Stockall, Nancy – TEACHING Exceptional Children, 2019
It is the responsibility of special educators to understand and interpret the results of high-stakes assessments for educational purposes and for communication to parents. To help teachers understand and accurately communicate high-stakes testing results, the authors describe a set of research-based strategies in the "RISC" process:…
