Garcia, Peggie; Morales, P. Zitlali – Education Policy Analysis Archives, 2016
Although there has been a great deal of debate about the effectiveness of charter schools in the research literature, there has been surprisingly little attention paid to English language learners (ELLs) in charter schools. Moreover, the charter school research has predominantly focused on whether or not charter schools are effective rather than…

Walls, Leon – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2017
This paper is written in response to Angela Chapman and Allan Feldman's research study, "Cultivation of science identity through authentic science in an urban high school [classroom]". I utilize this forum piece to extend the call for "awakening a dialogue" that critically assesses the effectiveness of current K-12 science…

Athanases, Steven – Leadership, 2012
As teachers, schools and school leaders work to better prepare California's culturally and linguistically diverse students, methods for doing so vary widely. One approach prioritizes safe spaces, welcoming environments, well-structured routines--school and classroom culture features essential for students' well-being. A second key priority, often…

Borthwick, Arlene; Hansen, Randall; Gray, Lucy; Ziemann, Irina – Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), 2008
The editorial by Bull et al. (2008) on connections between informal and formal learning made explicit one element of solving what Koehler and Mishra (2008) termed a "wicked problem." This wicked (complex, ill-structured) problem involves working with teachers for effective integration of technology in support of student learning. The…

Alonzo, Alicia C. – Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research and Perspectives, 2011
Black, Wilson, and Yao (this issue) lay out a comprehensive vision for the way that learning progressions (or other "road maps") might be used to inform and coordinate formative and summative purposes of assessment. As Black, Wilson, and others have been arguing for over a decade, the effective use of formative assessment has great potential to…

Tavin, Kevin – Art Education, 2014
In an era that is rife with aggression and hostility, most art educators hold close to their hearts the belief that they, and their students, can contribute to making the world a better place. Through their acts as teachers and the daily work of art education, they often strive toward creating a space of "non-violence." For K-12…

In this paper, the author argues that sustained, discipline-specific professional development provides the key to transferring research knowledge base to the classroom, where it can lead to significant improvements in the quality of history instruction. To be successful, such professional development must--like good classroom instruction--begin…

Berland, Leema K.; McNeill, Katherine L. – Science Education, 2012
Scientific argumentation and explanation are essential practices of science that have been highlighted as equally important for K-12 science education. However, as Osborne and Patterson (2011) have recently argued, both the term "argument" and "explanation" have multiple, overlapping, meanings, and uses in science education. In this article, the…

Scoggin, Daniel; Vander Ark, Tom – Education Next, 2018
A truism of school reform has long been the promise that technology, properly applied, will fuel dramatic improvement in teaching and learning. When tech-enabled schools or online learning programs haven't delivered the hoped-for results, some have dismissed these shortcomings as implementation problems--or evidence that we haven't yet deployed…

Karppinen, Seppo J. A. – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2012
Adventure in school culture may seem quite a contradiction. In this paper I will present arguments on the idea that outdoor adventure learning contributes to formal education and is compatible with school practice and goals. This paper is based on research conducted for my thesis. The doctoral degree was completed at Oulu University, Finland, in…

One major idea that the author found most valuable is the focus on student…

Neem, Johann N. – Democracy & Education, 2018
The Common Core does not advance democratic education. Far from it, the opening section of the language standards argues that the goal of public K-12 education is "college and career readiness." Only at the end of their introductory section do the Common Core's authors suggest that K-12 education has any goals beyond the economic:…
