Launching a problem is critical in a problem-based lesson. We investigated teachers' perspectives on the use of a problem that was analogous to the one provided during a launch.

We describe 2 programs of research related to this topic. One program of…

Hunt, Kari; Gurvitch, Rachel; Lund, Jacalyn L. – Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, 2016
Educational reform in the past decade has placed a very strong emphasis on teacher accountability and student achievement. This change in focus has caused a thorough reexamination of how teacher quality and effectiveness are defined in the field, and has triggered a reform of the teacher evaluation process. As a result, generic, all-encompassing…

We then consider this approach in opposition to the mainstream technological espoused approach, while focusing our contrasting analysis on student's authorial agency and critical dialogue. We argue that the…

Bissonnette, Jeanne Dyches – Journal of Language and Literacy Education, 2016
Because few teacher education programs are truly rooted in the philosophical aims of multicultural and social justice education (Asher, 2007; Banks, 2008; Hayes & Juarez, 2012; Miller, 2014), many pre-service teachers (PSTs) remain unpracticed--and unable--to teach in culturally responsive ways (Sleeter, 2012).
