Pierce, Dennis – Community College Journal, 2019
Employers across a wide variety of industries say the so-called "soft" skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, communication and collaboration have grown in importance as rapid advancements in technology have transformed their operations. According to a survey from the National Association of Colleges and Employers, problem…

Hartigan, Campbell; Hademenos, George – Physics Teacher, 2019
One way that STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) initiatives are being utilized is to encourage schools and teachers to integrate key science-based concepts into daily instruction. The reason is simple: it is more than just an instructional improvement or curricular enhancement; it is a research-based strategy that addresses the…

Masters, Heidi; Hilgendorf, Chelsey; Stundahl, Lisa; Gresl, Megan; Jentsch, Amber – Science and Children, 2019
To support elementary school students in finding a solution to an engineering problem, the authors developed a series of five lessons using the 5E Instructional Model (Bybee 2014). The lessons align with the "Next Generation Science Standards" and the "Common Core State Standards" and integrate the teaching and learning of…

Merricks, Jessica; Lankford, Deanna – Science and Children, 2019
For some elementary science teachers, a unit on land and water brings nightmares of dirt and water all over the room. Several Earth science "kits" contain hands-on exercises that allow the students to "get messy" as they manipulate materials; however, these lessons may lack the necessary opportunities for students to ask unique…

Kim, Oanh Duong Thi – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2019
The transition towards a sustainable economy has given a new term "green competences". Green competences build upon the foundation of core competences including literacy, numeracy, communication, teamwork and problem-solving - which along with awareness of environmental issues and entrepreneurship, facilitate lifelong learning and…

Lee, Mi Yeon; Francis, Dionne Cross – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019
Children's literature can provide useful contexts for teaching mathematics. In this article, the authors discuss the use of the children's book "Measuring Penny" (Leedy 1997) to support Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010) related to length measurement. The authors first describe three types of misconceptions…

Bertolone-Smith, Claudia M.; Gillette-Koyen, Linda – Teaching Children Mathematics, 2019
The first author's initial attempts at a whole-class mathematics discussion were woefully dysfunctional. Ten second graders showing their answers to a missing addend question about the number of children left riding a school bus did not result in the mathematical epiphany that the textbook promised. She did not give up on using mathematical…

Zhao, Manqian; Lapuk, Karen – Mathematics Teacher, 2019
According to the National Center for Education Statistics (2016), the number of public school students in the United States who were English learners (ELs) was estimated at 4.5 million. However, in 2005, the national standardized testing scores (Fry 2007) show that about 51 percent of eighth-grade EL students were behind other students in reading…

Frabasilio, Angela Marie – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2019
Ever try to captivate students with real-world applications only to discover that they live in a very different world? Assigning an Extreme Word Problem activity to students alleviates this dilemma by placing the authorship of a problem squarely into the hands of learners. Rather than trying to be hip and finding word problems that resonate with…

Sela, Hagit; Davis, Nicole; Hulse, Jennifer – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2019
In education, "dialogue protocols," or "protocols," are structured guidelines that were developed to promote meaningful and efficient communication and learning. They are "vehicles for building the skills--and culture-- necessary for collaborative work. The authors share protocols that were found to transform practices…

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…

Barrera, Luis A.; Alma C. Escobosa; Alsaihati, Laila S.; Noveron, Juan C. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Herein we present a modified iodine clock experiment which replaces starch with cellulose paper. This provides the reaction with a white solid surface in which color change can be clearly observed and reduces reagent amounts required to 540 µL per group. After data acquisition, students are required to calculate reaction orders and the reaction…

Agcali, Rahime Yagmur; Atik, Bahar; Bilgen, Ecenaz; Karli, Berfu; Danisman, Mehmet Fatih – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Understanding the concepts of quantum mechanics has always been a challenge for undergraduate students. This is especially so because many of the introductory (analytically solvable) systems and problems discussed in textbooks are seemingly abstract. Using approximate experimental demonstrations of such systems and problems have been shown to be…

Hess, Dennis W. – Chemical Engineering Education, 2019
Upon graduation, engineering (and science) undergraduate and graduate students are typically well-prepared for success in technical problem solving. However, they have had little exposure to the vagaries associated with the interplay of "people" and technical problems (sometimes referred to as sociotechnical efforts), especially as…
