Gençer, Hüseyin – Universal Journal of Educational Research, 2019
Individuals are always in interaction with other individuals outside, as well as in the group and with the group itself. This is why the social sciences emphasize the importance of group dynamics.

Wiggins, Tanya G. – Afterschool Matters, 2018
Friendship and peer groups are important to youth. However, adults in afterschool programs and other youth-serving community-based organizations often either ignore peer relationships or deem them detrimental to desired youth outcomes. What would it mean to consider young people's friendships in a different light? How can this important element of…

Koljonen, Tuula; Ryve, Andreas; Hemmi, Kirsti – Research in Mathematics Education, 2018
Given that curriculum materials serve as cultural artefacts, this study addresses the need for more research on curriculum materials in different contexts. Most studies concerning curriculum materials have been conducted in US and, therefore little is known about the nature of materials in other cultural-educational contexts. The aim of this paper…

Harring, Niklas; Jagers, Sverker C. – Environmental Education Research, 2018
Pressing problems of environmental degradation are typically argued to require coordination, primarily through state intervention.

People with university degrees are assumed to have…

Clarke, A. J. Benjamin; Ludington, Jason D. – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2018
Normative databases containing psycholinguistic variables are commonly used to aid stimulus selection for investigations into language and other cognitive processes. Norms exist for many languages, but not for Thai. The aim of the present research, therefore, was to obtain Thai normative data for the BOSS, a set of 480 high resolution color…

Improving the teaching of invisible culture is a recognised need in the TESOL sector. While there are both scholars calling for a more nuanced focus in classrooms, and teachers willing to take this approach, there has yet been no systematic approach developed for its teaching. This paper attempts to bridge the gap between theory and pedagogical…
