Pongsakdi, Nonmanut; Laakkonen, Eero; Laine, Teija; Veermans, Koen; Hannula-Sormunen, Minna M.; Lehtinen, Erno – Scandinavian Journal of Educational Research, 2019
A Word Problem Enrichment programme (WPE) has been found to increase student word problem solving performance when facing non-routine and application problems. However, it is unknown if the WPE has an impact on student beliefs about word problem solving and how the WPE works for students with different motivation in learning mathematics. This…

Maeng, Jennifer L.; Bell, Randy L.; St. Clair, Tyler; Gonczi, Amanda L.; Whitworth, Brooke A. – International Journal of Science Education, 2018
This embedded mixed method study used a randomised controlled? trial design to examine two cohorts of upper (grades 4-6) elementary teachers' classroom implementation of nature of science (NOS) instruction following their participation in a statewide professional development (PD). The treatment group (n = 145) was compared to a control group (n =…

Loong, Esther; Vale, Colleen; Widjaja, Wanty; Herbert, Sandra; Bragg, Leicha A.; Davidson, Aylie – Mathematics Education Research Group of Australasia, 2018
Despite mathematical reasoning being a proficiency included in mathematics curricula around the world, research has found that primary teachers struggle to understand, teach, and assess mathematical reasoning. A detailed rubric involving the three reasoning actions of analysing, generalising and justifying at five proficiency levels was refined…

Edmondson, Elizabeth; Choudhry, Fahima – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
This study investigates whether elementary science teachers participating in a four-week professional development workshop develop new understandings about classroom discourse and whether they are able to implement strategies toward teaching science as student-to-student discourse. Perspectives and the extent of teacher use of discourse strategies…

Vandermark, Tara – ProQuest LLC, 2018
This study was designed to test the relationships between the level of implementation for instructional rounds and various instructional outcomes in grades 3-6 in a large suburban Texas school district. From the population of teachers in the district, a random sample of teachers ( n= 200) who taught in grades 3-6 were invited to participate in the…

Bishara, Saied – Cogent Education, 2018
In this, I examined the differences between two approaches for teaching math to pupils with learning disabilities: active teaching as opposed to traditional teaching, which engages pupils more directly in their own learning process and promotes collaborative learning, and traditional (frontal) teaching. The hypothesis is that active teaching will…

Waree, Chaiwat – International Education Studies, 2017
The purpose of the study was to develop a powerful and empowering guide (CBT) of elementary school teachers, to compare the ability of elementary school teachers. Management learning uses brain as a base. The experimental group with a control group the experimental group used in this research was a teacher at the grade level. 4-6 in province By…

Carmichael, Colin; Callingham, Rosemary; Watt, Helen M. G. – ZDM: The International Journal on Mathematics Education, 2017
Interest has long been regarded as an important motivational construct in the learning of mathematics. It has been contended that the development of interest is directed by two control systems: an emotional and a cognitive. Under the former, students are attracted to activities that are enjoyable, whereas under the latter they consciously engage…

Izadpanahi, Parisa; Elkadi, Hisham; Tucker, Richard – Environmental Education Research, 2017
This study aims to determine if primary school children's environmental attitudes can be predicted by whether their school had been designed or adapted for sustainability. A New Ecological Paradigm ("NEP") scale for children was adopted to measure attitudes, with supplementary questions added to align this scale to the Australian context…

Li, Yuk Yung – American Educational Research Journal, 2017
Despite decades of research, little is known about the dynamics of sustaining change in school reform and how the process of change unfolds. By tracing the nine-year reform journeys of four primary schools in Hong Kong (using multiyear interview, observational, and archival data), this study uncovers the micro-processes the schools experienced…

Master, Benjamin; Loeb, Susanna; Wyckoff, James – Educational Evaluation and Policy Analysis, 2017
Evidence that teachers' short-term instructional effects persist over time and predict substantial long-run impacts on students' lives provides much of the impetus for a wide range of educational reforms focused on identifying and responding to differences in teachers' value-added to student learning. However, relatively little research has…

Panayiotou, Anastasia; Kyriakides, Leonidas; Christoforidou, Margarita; Creemers, Bert; Televantou, Ioulia – AERA Online Paper Repository, 2017
This paper advocates the use of the Dynamic Approach (DA) to promote Student Self-Assessment (SSA) for formative purposes. DA is based on the assumption that professional development should be differentiated to meet teachers' needs, while engaging them into guided critical reflection. A sample of 45 teachers was randomly allocated into two groups:…

Alshamali, Mahmoud A.; Daher, Wajeeh M. – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2016
This study aimed at identifying the levels of scientific reasoning of upper primary stage (grades 4-7) science teachers based on their use of a problem-solving strategy. The study sample (N = 138; 32 % male and 68 % female) was randomly selected using stratified sampling from an original population of 437 upper primary school teachers. The…
