Lac, Van T.; Baxley, Gwendolyn S. – Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, 2019
The leaders of the Black Student Union (BSU) at Liberty High School share their school climate and culture survey with Ms. Nguyen, their Asian American principal. Black youth leaders reveal a hostile and unwelcoming climate in the form of anti-blackness for Black students at a school staffed with primarily white teachers. BSU students request to…

Perry, Anthony; Estabrooks, Leigh – Science Teacher, 2019
The "Next Generation Science Standards" ("NGSS") emphasize integrating engineering design into the science classroom (NGSS Lead States 2013). Inventing is an authentic and relevant classroom approach, regardless of content area, located at one end of a design continuum opposite from routine problem solving. Invention, at the…

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…

Huinker, DeAnn – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019
Mathematics education at the high school level is not working for many students. Although there has been steady improvement in mathematics learning at the elementary and middle school levels across the United States, for the past decade, student achievement has remained essentially flat at the high school level (NCES 2015, 2016). One possible…

Laughlin, Michael K.; Hodges, Michael; Iraggi, Taylor – Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, 2019
Physical educators are discovering the benefits of using video analysis to support their instruction and assessment. Slow-motion playback, zoom, and voice-over narration are just some of the features built into increasingly affordable mobile devices and applications that can easily be used by teachers to support student learning. Additionally,…

Miller, Kurtz – Science Teacher, 2018
This article describes a grantmanship framework for high school science educators. The scenario described illustrates the importance of grant writing in an era of increased school accountability and tightened purse strings. The framework presented can be used for most STEM-related projects and can guide educators toward high-quality instruction…

Swanson, Lauren; Vernon, Heather; Bauer, Christina – Science Teacher, 2018
Understanding how scientific conclusions are drawn from data is central to learning about the nature of science. Many students struggle with aspects of reasoning from data, including identifying relationships among variables, interpreting graphs, coordinating theory and evidence, and not allowing personal beliefs to outweigh the data when forming…

Soto, Inia; Cambazoglu, Mustafa Kenal; Arnone, Robert; Kastler, Jessica; Parra, Sabrina – Science Teacher, 2018
Cruise planning may seem like an ordinary task for oceanographers, but it actually involves logical and strategic thinking, collaboration, and multidisciplinary work. The "Challenger" expedition, led by Charles Wyville Thomson from 1872 to 1876, was the first to be fully dedicated to understanding oceans (Rice et al. 1999) and was…

Lowe, James; Carter, Merilyn; Cooper, Tom – Australian Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Mathematical models are conceptual processes that use mathematics to describe, explain, and/or predict the behaviour of complex systems. This article is written for teachers of mathematics in the junior secondary years (including out-of-field teachers of mathematics) who may be unfamiliar with mathematical modelling, to explain the steps involved…

Riling, Meghan; Dietiker, Leslie – Mathematics Teacher, 2018
Although traditional textbooks may not guide students through explorations or encourage group work, as many standards-based curricula do, virtually all textbooks contain mathematically accurate information and problems that, with adjustment, can be leveraged to support mathematical curiosity, reasoning, and discussion. Teachers who recognize rich…

Flynn, Jill Ewing; Worden, Lynn J.; Rolón-Dow, Rosalie – Multicultural Perspectives, 2018
This article aims to help teacher educators consider how to build racial literacy in their White teacher candidates, providing guidance through pedagogical strategies and approaches based on our and others' research. In addition, much of the pedagogy that we developed in working with our White teacher candidates can be translated to teachers…
