Stewart, Lauren; Ross, Donna; Elliot, Kimberly – Science Teacher, 2019
This paper highlights learning supports associated with genetics lessons that were implemented in a urban high school biology classroom. The supports provided access to science content for ELLs [English language learners], students with IEPs [individualized education programs], and struggling readers during an introductory unit on genetics. Due to…

Dibbs, Rebecca; Beach, Janessa; Rios, Daniel – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Rich mathematical modeling activities are crucial to giving students agency and making mathematics meaningful. Proportional reasoning and transitional algebraic reasoning are the primary topics in the prealgebra curriculum, so a need exists for meaningful modeling activities using proportional reasoning in addition to geometric modeling. In…

Dickman, Benjamin – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
What do nonroutine algebra problems look like for a second-year algebra course, and where can such problems be found? Starting from the belief that even challenging, nonroutine problems should be solvable with the resources that students possess, Benjamin Dickman proceeded to formulate a small collection of tasks to push students into integrating…

Dani, Danielle; Hallman-Thrasher, Allyson; Litchfield, Erin – Science Teacher, 2018
One way to probe students' misconceptions about science during instruction is by using formative assessments. Described as assessments "for" learning rather than assessments "of" learning (Black and Wiliam 1998), they provide teachers with information about student understanding during instruction. Examples of formative…

Miles, Rhea; Zambone, Alana – Science Teacher, 2017
Students who are blind or visually impaired (BVI), like all students, need to conduct scientific investigations that involve measurements and reading experimental procedures. Best instructional practices for BVI students include touch and hearing experiences. Related strategies and tools include electronic textbooks, assistive technologies such as…

Crujeiras-Pérez, B.; Jiménez-Aleixandre, M. P. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2017
This paper examines the process of high school students' planning investigations in the chemistry laboratory across two consecutive academic years in terms of their actions and their progress. The context is a set of five inquiry-based laboratory tasks in which participants (9th and 10th graders, 14-15 and 15-16 years of age) are required to plan…

Accardo, Amy L.; Kuder, S. Jay – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2017
Mr. Perez and Mrs. Peterson co-teach a ninth-grade algebra class. Perez and Peterson's class includes four students with individualized education programs (IEPs). In response to legislation, such as the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act (2001) and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (2006), an increasing number of students…

Canipe, Martha; Tolbert, Sara – Science Teacher, 2016
As institutions, science and science education alike have rarely included the perspectives and contributions of indigenous peoples pertaining to the natural world. Yet, people worldwide have benefited from the traditional ecological knowledge of indigenous communities. Western science and technology, though broadly worthwhile, have been a source…

Hansen, Holly; Alderman, Helen Christine – Science Teacher, 2016
The goal of the Family Science Night (FSN) described in this article was to involve culturally and linguistically diverse families in school life so that students would be more vocal, successful, and interactive in science class. The project would also demonstrate to the students that their teacher valued their input in the classroom. The setting…

Bermingham, Aaron – Geographical Education, 2016
This study analysed the extent to which student-led inquiry is supported by fieldwork booklet design. Roberts' (2003) framework for learning through inquiry was used as lens for analysing the presence of student-led inquiry in the design of nine fieldwork booklets. Observations of teaching practice from two fieldwork activities were also analysed…

Johnson, Heather Lynn; Hornbein, Peter; Azeem, Sumbal – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
The authors provide a dynamic Ferris wheel computer activity that teachers can use as an instructional tool to help students investigate functions. They use a student's work to illustrate how students can use relationships between quantities to further their thinking about functions.

Gurl, Theresa J.; Fox, Ryan; Dabovic, Nikolina; Leavitt, Arielle Eager – Mathematics Teacher, 2016
The implementation of the Common Core's Standards for Mathematical Practice can pose a challenge to all teachers of mathematics but especially to preservice teachers. These standards require teaching in a way that often differs from what preservice teachers have experienced as learners. Standard 1--"Make sense of problems and persevere in…

Ellingson, Charlene; Roehrig, Gillian; Bakkum, Kris; Dubinsky, Janet M. – Science Teacher, 2016
This article introduces the Critical Response Protocol (CRP), an arts-based technique that engages students in equitable critical discourse and aligns with the "Next Generation Science Standards" vision for providing students opportunities for language learning while advancing science learning (NGSS Lead States 2013). CRP helps teachers…
