Wierzchowska, Justyna – International Journal of English Studies, 2018
This article examines seventeen children poems by Sylvia Plath written in the years 1960-63, in relation to the poetics of romantic love.

Mayer, Anysia; LeChasseur, Kimberly; Donaldson, Morgaen – American Journal of Education, 2018
Tracking remains a pervasive sorting mechanism in US high schools. Anthony Giddens's theory of structuration provides a useful framework for understanding how tracking is enacted and how its inequities might be interrupted. This study examines whether teachers reify tracks by systematically structuring generative rules differently for students in…

VanKooten, Crystal – Composition Forum, 2016
Recent research in writing studies has highlighted meta-awareness as valuable for student learning in courses such as first-year writing (FYW); however, meta-awareness needs to be further theorized and its components identified. In this article, I draw on a case study of six students in two FYW courses that is informed by Gregory Schraw's model of…

Eslinger, James C. – Education and Urban Society, 2014
The educational accountability movement in the United States under No Child Left Behind has negatively affected urban teachers because of high-stakes testing, narrowed curriculum, and scripted pedagogy.

Zhao, Kang; Biesta, Gert – Adult Education Quarterly: A Journal of Research and Theory, 2012
A key aspect of contemporary lifelong learning theory, policy, and practice is the idea that, because of rapid changes in contemporary societies, there is a constant need for individuals to learn new knowledge and skills in order to adapt themselves to changing conditions. There is, therefore, an increased emphasis on the personal dimension of…

Webster, R. Scott – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2018
If educators are to educate they must be accorded some level of trust. Anthony Giddens claims that because trust is not easily created, it is now being replaced with "confidence" because this latter disposition is much easier to give and is more convenient. It is argued in this paper that this shift from trust to confidence stifles…

Thaver, L. L. – South African Journal of Higher Education, 2010
Higher education institutions in South Africa continue variously to experience a range of contestations that are analogous much of the time to "war by other means". However, if we stand back from our divided social lives and the mandate that history visits on our institutions, not to absolve anyone but to yield to what the imperatives…

Bair, Mary Antony; Bair, David Edward – International Journal of Education Policy and Leadership, 2014
Although many states in the United States are adopting policies that require all students to complete college-preparatory science classes to graduate from high school, such policies have not always led to improved student outcomes. There is much speculation about the cause of the dismal results, but there is scant research on the processes by…

Bair, David E.; Bair, Mary Antony – Journal of Ethnographic & Qualitative Research, 2011
Although many states mandate college preparatory curricula for all high school students, there is no conclusive evidence regarding the benefits of this effort. Furthermore, we know little about how schools interpret and implement such policies. This extended ethnographic case study included a 4 year examination of 1 Michigan high school's response…

Block, David – Language and Intercultural Communication, 2013
Against a backdrop of rapid global transformations, the ever-increasing migration of people across nation-state borders and a wide array of language practices, applied linguists, and language and intercultural communication researchers in particular, often include identity as a key construct in their work. Most adopt a broadly poststructuralist…
