Van Steenbrugge, H.; Lesage, E.; Valcke, M.; Desoete, A. – Journal of Curriculum Studies, 2014
This research analyses preservice teachers' knowledge of fractions. Fractions are notoriously difficult for students to learn and for teachers to teach. Previous studies suggest that student learning of fractions may be limited by teacher understanding of fractions. If so, teacher education has a key role in solving the problem. We first reviewed…

Sahragard, Rahman; Yazdanpanahi, Solmaz – Online Submission, 2017
Engagement markers (hereafter, EMs) are crucial interpersonal devices to interact with readers through texts. However, little is known about the differences of EMs use in Humanities and Science journal research articles (hereafter, RAs), as well as the changes in markers use over the passage of time. The present study provides a quantitative and…
