Smith, Catherine J.; Mansfield, Steven J.; Anderson, Edward A.; Burton, Jonathan W. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Organic synthesis in a modern research laboratory uses state-of-the-art equipment to provide inert atmospheres, track reaction progress, and facilitate the purification of intermediates. Such facilities are not available in a high school laboratory. In this paper, synthetic organic chemistry is taken back to basics: A four step total synthesis of…

Coletta, Vincent P.; Bernardin, Josh; Pascoe, Daniel; Hoemke, Anatol – Physics Teacher, 2019
Physics instructors recognize the value of kinesthetic experience in learning fundamental physics concepts. We describe a kinesthetic experiment appropriate for both college and high school physics students. The experiment helps students achieve an intuitive understanding of Newton's second law in a way they find quite enjoyable. It was devised by…

de Jesus, V. L. B.; Pérez, C. A. C.; de Oliveira, A. L.; Sasaki, D. G. G. – Physics Education, 2019
Currently, the number of smartphones with an embedded gyroscope sensor has been increasing due games whose performance relies on 3D augmented reality. In general, teaching papers on the gyroscope sensor address very simple spatial configuration, where the fixed rotation axis coincides to the z-axis of the smartphone. This work presents five…

Mills, Reece; Tomas, Louisa; Lewthwaite, Brian – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2019
There is a need for research-informed instructional approaches that promote school students' deep conceptual understanding of abstract geological concepts. Given that a type of learner-constructed stop-motion animation, 'slowmation', has been shown to offer affordances for learning in science preservice teacher education, we extended its…

Schneider, Elia M.; Bärtsch, Amadeus; Stark, Wendelin J.; Grass, Robert N. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A simple synthesis of fluorescent carbon quantum dots from lemon juice is described to introduce advanced high-school students and undergraduate college students to nanoparticle synthesis and quantum dots. The synthesis is based on the carbonization of lemon juice using only a hot plate stirrer. Column chromatography is used to separate different…

Kaplowitz, Donna Rich; Griffin, Shayla Reese; Seyka, Sheri – Teachers College Press, 2019
All too often, race discourse in the United States devolves into shouting matches, silence, or violence, all of which are mirrored in today's classrooms. This book will help individuals develop the skills needed to facilitate difficult dialogues across race in high school and college classrooms, in teacher professional learning communities, and…

Wu, Bian; Yu, Xiaoxue; Hu, Yiling – British Journal of Educational Technology, 2019
With the continuous deployment of ICT in K-12 education, strong access but weak uptake has become the greatest challenge for ICT implementation in schools. As the pioneer of China's K-12 educational reform, Shanghai draws our attention in terms of the critical factors and the underlying mechanism of ICT transformation in K-12 schools. The study…

Stiller, Klaus D. – Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, 2019
In three experiments, learners used computerized learning material, which consisted of static pictures and on-screen text relating to the physiology of vision in one of two formats. The formats differed in method of access to text. Accessing text by clicking on picture components was hypothesized to produce superior learning to linear access…

Briggs, Michael – Physics Teacher, 2019
The mystery tube is a fairly well known activity among science teachers for illustrating the nature of science. A variety of procedures have been presented for carrying out this activity, such as Scott Miller's method based on the BCSE 5E Instructional Model. Mystery tubes and other "black box" activities allow the students to engage in…

Hoban, Richard A. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Many students do not have a deep understanding of the integral concept. This article defines what a deep understanding of the integral is in respect to integration involving one independent variable; briefly discusses factors which may inhibit such an understanding; and then describes the design of a mathematical resource for introducing students…

Zengin, Bugra; Basal, Ahmet; Yükselir, Ceyhun – Reading Matrix: An International Online Journal, 2019
Language and literature are difficult to separate since they are closely intertwined with strong bonds. Language teachers, we believe, have an important role in the inclusion of literature in language classes. In this context, the perception of language teachers and instructors are utmost importance in using literature in language teaching…

de Carvalho, Vinícius; Martins, Victor Hugo; Fabris, Luís Victor Muller; Muller, Marcia; Fabris, José Luís – Physics Education, 2019
This work shows the production steps of two optical fibre sensing setups which were specially designed for the activities of the 2018 Photonics Lab Open Day realized at the Federal University of Technology-Paraná in Brazil as a celebration of the first International Day of Light (16 May). The systems are based on the sensing properties of fibre…

Holzberg, Debra G.; Test, David W.; Rusher, Dana E. – Remedial and Special Education, 2019
For students with high-incidence disabilities, the transition from secondary to postsecondary educational settings poses the additional challenge of acquiring accommodations. Self-advocacy interventions have been identified as important skills for students with disabilities in accessing accommodations. The purpose of this study was to examine the…
