Ward, Gay; Dahlmeier, Crystal – Young Children, 2011
Inspired by a variety of early childhood educators' observations and writings, the authors reflected on what a joyful classroom looks like, sounds like, and feels like.

Wardle, Elizabeth – Composition Forum, 2013
At three different institutions, public and private, in varying roles, I have found the very particular problem of how to inform micro-level classroom practices with macro-level disciplinary knowledge to be centrally important to our field's development and our students' learning--and singularly difficult to overcome. In this program profile, I…

Brooks, Julia G. – Educational Foundations, 2011
In this paper, the author seeks to initiate a conversation about the discomfort that can emerge and the violence that might possibly take place in the "critical", dialogic, and justice-oriented Foundations of Education classroom between students and instructors when all are invited to negotiate "the necessary conditions" for learning.

Mee, Molly – National Middle School Association (NJ3), 2007
Many middle school students claim that their voices are ignored in the classroom, where the attitude is too often that the teacher holds the one right answer.

Bluestein, Jane – Educational Leadership, 2011
The win-win approach to solving conflicts, which has become popular in the business world, should be a natural for the school environment. Win-win thinking can foster a cooperative school climate by meeting educators' and students' needs for dignity, belonging, and respect.

Olitsky, Stacy – Cultural Studies of Science Education, 2011
Previous research has suggested that competitive classroom environments can play a role in perpetuating race and class inequalities. However, classroom competition can also promote learning, and eliminating it could do students a disservice.

This paper is a response to "Challenges and Opportunities: Using a science-based video game in secondary school settings" by Rachel Muehrer, Jennifer Jenson, Jeremy Friedberg, and Nicole Husain.

Getty, Laura J. – Teaching in Higher Education, 2011
Teachers in American study-abroad programs usually receive little, if any, training before the trip, because "teaching is teaching". The cultural differences between Chinese and American university classrooms, however, affect the students' ability to learn and the teacher's ability to teach in profound ways. Foreign teachers in China require at…

Lee, Daniel E. – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2006
Sketched in somewhat general terms, there are two basic ways of going about teaching ethics: (1) the moral indoctrination approach, which is essentially a rote learning exercise; and (2) the moral engagement approach, which emphasizes listening to others in an open-minded manner and coming to carefully considered conclusions only after thoughtful…

Reeve, Johnmarshall – Elementary School Journal, 2006
Students are sometimes proactive and engaged in classroom learning activities, but they are also sometimes only reactive and passive. Recognizing this, in this article I argue that students' classroom engagement depends, in part, on the supportive quality of the classroom climate in which they learn. According to the dialectical framework within…

Correa, Elaine; Wilkinson, Colleen – Journal for Multicultural Education, 2017
