Limpanuparb, Taweetham; Kanithasevi, Siradanai; Lojanarungsiri, Maytouch; Pakwilaikiat, Puh – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
We discuss the use of a simple piece of equipment made of a 50 mL syringe attached to a 2 mL graduated pipet to demonstrate Boyle's law and Charles's law. A plot of the hydrostatic pressure against the reciprocal of the volume of the gas read from the equipment is linear as discussed in the paper and gives the atmospheric pressure at the…

Coffey, Heather; Putman, S. Michael; Handler, Laura K.; Leach, Will – Teacher Education Quarterly, 2019
While Grow Your Own (GYO) programs have sought for decades to remedy teacher shortages across the United States, myriad factors, including the demographic shifts in public school populations, have in recent years exacerbated the need to recruit and retain teachers of color and of bilingual backgrounds. Amid models of precollegiate and…

Alho, J.; Silva, H.; Teodoro, V.; Bonfait, G. – Physics Education, 2019
In the field of physics teaching, the simple pendulum provides a very simple way to study the harmonic oscillator, the source of some fundamental concepts such as periodicity, relaxation time and anharmonicity. As such, its experimental study is frequently integrated into high school or first year university programs. With this in mind, in this…

Rosi, Tommaso; Gratton, Luigi M.; Onorato, Pasquale; Oss, Stefano – Physics Education, 2019
We propose to reconsider the well-known experiment about the interference of white light from a thin soap film by adopting as an illuminating source the RGB triad produced by a LED projector. The interference pattern shows up in a particularly fascinating way and it contains direct, essential information about both the wave nature of light and of…

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…

Ait Tahar, M.; Schadschneider, A.; Stollenwerk, J. – Physics Education, 2019
This article is about the development of an Internet-based remotely-controlled physical experiment, this is a part of the Remotely Controlled Laboratory at the University of Applied Sciences of Cologne known as TH Köln. The main experimental set-up is based on Pohl's Torsion Pendulum which was enhanced by a PXI measurement system and a webcam. In…

Sargrad, Scott; Partelow, Lisette; Yin, Jessica – Center for American Progress, 2019
The 2018 elections were historic on many levels, with the highest turnout in a midterm year since 1914, record numbers of women winning office, and the first Native American and Muslim women ever elected to Congress. At the state level, 36 governors' races were on the ballot, and 20 newly elected governors take office in January. As these 20 new…

LeSuer, Robert J. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Consumer-grade manufacturing tools such as 3D printers are becoming increasingly prevalent in STEM education environments, especially as tools to develop inexpensive, tactile visualization models. Presented here is a workflow for creating 3D-printed periodic tables displaying a variety of trends from traditionally taught relationships such as…

Wiggins, Marcie B.; Heath, Emma; Alcántara-García, Jocelyn – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
The interface of art and science provides a broad range of educational and collaborative projects at various learning stages. Therefore, the use of historic artists' materials for teaching chemistry is receiving more attention. We prepared and used copper acetate (verdigris pigment) for a series of interconnected, lab-based activities, which can…

Van Soelen, Thomas M.; Kersey, Shannon N.; Chester, Charles; LeMoyne, Michael; Perkins, Rebecca Williams – Learning Professional, 2019
Shannon Kersey, principal of Alpharetta High School in Georgia and one of the authors of this article, believes in the benefits of building assistant principals' leadership capacity, not just for success in their current jobs but to support their eventual transition to principal. Three of her former assistant principals are now principals of…

Scheef, Andrew R.; Hollingshead, Aleksandra; Voss, Cory S. – Intervention in School and Clinic, 2019
The use of peer support arrangements can be an effective strategy to improve educational services for students with disabilities, including those with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). When developing peer support arrangements, secondary teachers should consider aligning these services with evidence-based predictors of positive postschool outcomes…

Ganon-Shilon, Sherry; Chen, Schechter – Management in Education, 2019
Educational reform implementation in today's fast changing world requires a critical transition from individual to school sense-making processes. Managing expectations from above (e.g. external demands) and below (e.g. internal school goals) while performing within multiple overlapping contexts, principals seem pulled in many different directions…

Bambrick-Santoyo, Paul – Educational Leadership, 2019
Traditional PD sessions share information on new practices, but teachers often can't translate that information effectively to implement the new practice in their classrooms. A better way is to show a teacher a model of excellent practice by a colleague and help her reflect on the "gap" between her practice and the model, then plan…

Sampson, Charles; Moore, Jeff; Roegman, Rachel – Educational Leadership, 2019
After bringing hidden inequities to light, a high-performing school district set out to reverse course. The district adopted two key practices to center issues of equity: the development of a district-specific metric, the Opportunity Index, and deep analysis of deceleration patterns in course taking among certain groups. These practices, alongside…

Borup, Jered; Walters, Shea; Call-Cummings, Megan – International Review of Research in Open and Distributed Learning, 2019
With the rapid growth of K-12 online learning opportunities, calls have come for more and better parental engagement to improve student engagement and reduce student attrition. In this article, we drew from a larger study to share rich narratives from three parents of students who required high levels of parental support for their online learning…
