Mahdavi, Neda; Miri, Mowla – International Journal of Listening, 2019
This study examined the effect of metacognitive process-based and product-based instruction on enhancing listening comprehension and metacognitive awareness. Two classes of high-beginner English as a foreign language learners were randomly assigned to two groups: product-based (n = 30) process-based (n = 30). Both before and after eight…

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…

Fernández, Gabriela A.; Ocampo, Romina A.; Costantino, Andrea R.; Dop, Néstor S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Visually impaired or blind students require adjustments to the traditional hands-on activities and methodological and didactic strategies employed by the teacher. These adaptations are based on multisensory teaching tools, which reinforce the learning of all students in general. This paper presents simple teaching resources that allow students…

Cetina-Vázquez, Melby; Cabañas-Sánchez, Guadalupe; Sosa-Moguel, Landy – International Journal of Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology, 2019
This study characterizes the classroom mathematical practices that support the collective mathematical progress during the treatment of a quadratic function in an Introductory Calculus course comprised of 15 students from eleventh grade (from 16 to 18 years old). A teaching experiment that discussed two variational situations was designed for the…

Budke, Michael; Parchmann, Ilka; Beeken, Marco – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
In the past 20 years, science education in schools has increasingly been supported by extracurricular learning opportunities. From the point of view of pupils and teachers, student laboratories make meaningful contributions to complement the teaching of science. Studies have shown that participation in student laboratories has increased students'…

Journal of Geography, 2018
This article presents the findings of a study to determine the degree of consistency in what is taught and learned in high school and college-level introductory courses in geographic information science and technology (GIS&T). A content analysis identified sixteen topics that are generally representative of the knowledge, skills, and abilities…

Benotti, Luciana; Martinez, Maria Cecilia; Schapachnik, Fernando – IEEE Transactions on Learning Technologies, 2018
In this paper we present a software platform called Chatbot designed to introduce high school students to Computer Science (CS) concepts in an innovative way: by programming chatbots. A chatbot is a bot that can be programmed to have a conversation with a human or robotic partner in some natural language such as English or Spanish. While…

Case, Catherine; Jacobbe, Tim – Statistics Education Research Journal, 2018
Although hypothesis testing is ubiquitous in data analysis, research suggests it is commonly misunderstood. Simulation-based inference methods have potential to make student thinking visible, thus providing a valuable lens to analyze developing conceptions about inference. This paper identifies difficulties made visible through simulation-based…

Liang, Qingsheng; Wei, Yajun – Physics Teacher, 2018
"How does an aircraft fly?" is one of the most frequently asked science questions by young pupils. The lift on airplane wings also makes a great example of the application of the Bernoulli principle while teaching fluid mechanics in introductory physics and engineering courses. The topic is of great interest and is therefore covered in…

Malone, Kathy L.; Schunn, Christian D.; Schuchardt, Anita M. – Journal of Science Education and Technology, 2018
The National Research Council framework for science education and the Next Generation Science Standards have developed a need for additional research and development of curricula that is both technologically model-based and includes engineering practices. This is especially the case for biology education. This paper describes a quasi-experimental…

Jordan, Connor; Dunn, Amy; Armstrong, Zachary; Adams, Wendy K. – Physics Teacher, 2018
Projectile motion is a common phenomenon that is used in introductory physics courses to help students understand motion in two dimensions. Authors have shared a range of ideas for teaching this concept and the associated kinematics in "The Physics Teacher" ("TPT"); however, the "Hoop Challenge" is a new setup not…

Wolfe, Benjamin A. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2018
The geosciences continue to lag behind the other sciences in both diversity and degree completion rates of students transferring from two-year colleges (2YCs). Critical to strengthening the transfer student pipeline is the need to identify who takes introductory geosciences courses at the 2YC level and what factors contribute to increased 2YC…

Woods, Chenoa S.; Park, Toby; Hu, Shouping; Betrand Jones, Tamara – Community College Review, 2018
Objective: In recent years, developmental education (DE) reform has led to a restructuring of the placement process, redesigning of course instructional modalities, or implementing student support services to supplement developmental coursework. In Florida, recent legislative changes allowed students to opt out of placement testing and enroll…

Kaiser, Adrian; Stark, Wendelin J.; Grass, Robert N. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2017
A chemistry laboratory experiment using everyday items and readily available chemicals is described to introduce advanced high school students and undergraduate college students to porous polymer membranes. In a three-step manufacturing process, a membrane is produced at room temperature. The filtration principle of the membrane is then…
