Tikva, Judith Bar – Teaching and Teacher Education: An International Journal of Research and Studies, 2010
We studied what 13-15-year-olds believe teaching's components are.

Villano, Matt – Campus Technology, 2006
In the age of electronic media, some say producing textbooks is a dying art. And it may be true that every day, devices with names such as iPod and eBook threaten to replace the age-old "technology" of the traditional book with a newer, faster, and equally (if not more) portable approach.

Rosenow, Nancy – Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, 2011
When the author was a child 50 years ago, nobody planned her outdoor environment.

Howard, Jennifer – Chronicle of Higher Education, 2008
Nobody shouts "It's alive!" in the novel that gave birth to Frankenstein's monster. "Frankenstein, or the Modern Prometheus," does not feature mad scientists messing around with beakers in laboratories, nor does it deliver any bug-eyed assistants named Igor. Hollywood has given people those stock images, but the story of the monster and his maker…

Yet some critics now complain that in the current system, with its rising costs, students are not in general learning much if anything, and there is a good deal of data to suggest…

Qualter, Anne – Primary Science Review, 2005
It is amazing how many interesting projects are going on in schools that nobody else knows much about. Teachers in St Peters Primary School have, over recent years, been involved in projects on emotional intelligence and in particular have developed a special interest in the use of puppets and role-play in their teaching. A concern to ensure a…
