Tsuda, Emi; Chang, Seung Ho – Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, 2019
This article introduces a sequence of movement tasks to teach one-handed sidearm striking with a short implement to preK- to second-grade children. Although one-handed sidearm striking is a complex skill, learning this skill during early childhood would expand future opportunities for children to engage in various lifetime physical activities.

Whitlock, Annie McMahon; Brugar, Kristy A. – Social Studies, 2017
This article explores examples of student-initiated inquiries (in Grades 1 and 5) and the opportunities and challenges with engaging in them. To explore these student-initiated inquiries, we use the "C3 Framework" Inquiry Arc (National Council for the Social Studies, 2013) and Harvey and Daniels's (2009) Small-Group Inquiry Model to…

Adams, Krista; Feagin, Shannon – Science and Children, 2017
This article presents a lesson that was designed to explore the scientific descriptions of matter through both the intensive and extensive properties that students successfully added to their vocabulary. Students' examples demonstrated that there were places where their reasoning about matter faltered as related to how the material is the same…

Whitacre, Ian; Schoen, Robert C.; Champagne, Zachary; Goddard, Andrea – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2017
Data (Schoen et al. 2016) suggests that because many students' understanding of subtraction is limited by thinking about the operation only as take-away or by using a default procedure, such as the standard subtraction algorithm in the United States, second graders are much more likely to solve 100 minus 3 correctly than 201 minus 199. This…
