Leftwich, Kendal M.; Ioup, Juliette W.; Seab, C. Gregory – Physics Teacher, 2019
We report here on an effort to involve high school physics students in research on impacts of oil spills on marine mammals at a local university. We believe that the effort described here might be useful to others who would like to involve physics students in research, especially work of an interdisciplinary nature. The students learn to work…

Wettlaufer, Jacqueline R. A.; Sider, Steve R. – Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, 2019
In this case, a high school vice-principal encounters tension and anger when she rewrites a staff member's report card comments without his knowledge. The case narrative examines the conflict that arises when, under time constraints and pressures to produce student reports, the vice-principal acts on a decision she believes is ethically correct…

Hartshorne, Richard; Waring, Scott M.; Okraski, Hank – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2019
While the importance of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education to address complex world problems, such as global warming, disease, and an increasingly interdependent world economy has led to many educational reform efforts in recent years, other content areas, such as social studies, have unnecessarily become…

Briggs, Michael – Physics Teacher, 2019
The mystery tube is a fairly well known activity among science teachers for illustrating the nature of science. A variety of procedures have been presented for carrying out this activity, such as Scott Miller's method based on the BCSE 5E Instructional Model. Mystery tubes and other "black box" activities allow the students to engage in…

Bridwell-Mitchell, Ebony N. – Phi Delta Kappan, 2019
Education policy makers often encourage public schools to form partnerships with community organizations, businesses, and higher education institutions. In theory, such partnerships can help struggling schools gain resources that they are unable to acquire through local, state, and federal funding mechanisms. However, as Ebony Bridwell-Mitchell…

Hoban, Richard A. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2019
Many students do not have a deep understanding of the integral concept. This article defines what a deep understanding of the integral is in respect to integration involving one independent variable; briefly discusses factors which may inhibit such an understanding; and then describes the design of a mathematical resource for introducing students…

Pierce, Dennis – Community College Journal, 2019
Community colleges have made great strides in advancing student success and completion during the last decade. But not all students have benefited from these efforts equally. According to the Lumina Foundation, the postsecondary attainment rate for adults in the United States is around 40 percent. Yet, there are still large gaps in attainment…

Simpson, Tyler; Chiu, Yu-Chun; Richards-Babb, Michelle; Blythe, Jessica M.; Ku, Kang-Mo – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Allelopathy plays crucial roles in invasive plant viability and agricultural production systems. However, there is no well-established hands-on learning activity to teach the concept of allelopathy. Nor is there an activity which allows students to gain knowledge about glucosinolates and their corresponding enzyme, myrosinase, which are present in…

Hartmann, Bruno; Priemer, Burkhard – Physics Education, 2019
In this paper we present a novel approach to teach kinetic energy as an observable and measurable concept. The fundamental principles have been outlined for gravitational potential energy in an earlier work, that we extend here. By accelerating or decelerating bodies with springs we begin, in a first step, with a direct comparison method for…

French, A.; Cullerne, J. P.; Kanchanasakdichai, O. – Physics Education, 2019
This paper develops the ideas of "The Pedagogical Power of Context: Iterative Calculus Methods and the Epidemiology of Eyam" (French "et al." 2018 "J. Phys. Educ."), where we considered the application of the Euler method to solve epidemiological problems. Our purpose was to convey some examples of school level work…

Finkel, Ed – Community College Journal, 2019
Though 80 percent of the 1.1 million community college students who enroll each year intend to transfer and earn a bachelor's degree, only about 14 percent of them end up getting a bachelor's degree within six years, according to a 2016 report from the Community College Research Center at Columbia University's Teachers College. Across the nation,…

Kim, MooSong; Jung, Jaehun – Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, 2019
An important role of physical education (PE) is to provide students with opportunities to be physically active. Toward this end, instructional alignment is introduced in this article as a means of promoting moderate-to-vigorous physical activity (MVPA) during PE. Following its introduction, the importance and effectiveness of instructional…

Rebora, Anthony – Educational Leadership, 2019
In an interview, educator and psychologist Thomas Armstrong says that schools need to do a better job of speaking to--rather than resisting or crushing--adolescents' neurological development. "Essentially, the curriculum in high school needs to be more affective," he argues. "It needs to be more engaging in terms of humor, vitality,…

Hart, Catherine – Educational Leadership, 2019
Hart shares the story of a high school student who was unmotivated by traditional academic work and on a downward trajectory--until he enrolled in a program that allowed him to take vocationally oriented classes at a community college while in high school. Content that was relevant and meaningful to him (EMT and firefighter training) led Max to…
