Wood, Marcy B. – Journal for Research in Mathematics Education, 2013
Identity is an important tool for understanding students' participation in mathematics lessons.

The goal of this qualitative research paper is to document the experiences of 2 fourth-grade students with immigration backgrounds in Germany. Using a poststructuralist approach to language and identity, we…

Oliveira, Alandeom W.; Akerson, Valarie L.; Oldfield, Martha – Journal of Research in Science Teaching, 2012
While environmental argumentation has recently received much attention from science educators, little consideration has been given to how personal identities and social relationships can either support or constrain student argumentation. This study attends to this issue by examining environmental argumentation as a sociocultural activity (how…
