Seeley, Julie – BU Journal of Graduate Studies in Education, 2021
Students are guaranteed, by legislation, a math education that focuses on the process of mastery learning, and that incorporates an Indigenous worldview. The issue is that some teachers and principals are apprehensive or do not have the skill or knowledge to support mastery learning and Indigenous worldview in math. This article is not a…

Seeley, Claire – Primary Science, 2016
Not only is there a shortage of people pursuing STEM-related careers today, but few people are looking to acquire STEM jobs in the future. This places a huge responsibility on primary educators, not simply to foster a love of science from an early age, but also to encourage longer-term aspirations among children. Researchers have discovered that a…

Seeley, Cathy L. – Educational Leadership, 2017
The traditional method of teaching math--showing students how to do a procedure, then assigning problems that require them to use that exact procedure--leads to adults who don't know how to approach problems that don't look like those in their math book. Seeley describes an alternative teaching method (upside-down teaching) in which teachers give…

Seeley, Lane; Gray, Kara; Robertson, Amy D. – Physics Teacher, 2021
The Next Generation Science Standards lay out a model of energy that locates energy within objects and fields, and tracks energy as it transfers between these objects and transforms between forms of energy while always being conserved. This model of energy pervades much of modern science and represents a foundational, cross-cutting concept for…

Seeley, Claire – Primary Science, 2014
The Beat the Flood challenge involves designing and building a model flood-proof home, which is then tested in "flood" conditions. It is set on the fictitious Watu Island. The children form teams, with each team member being assigned a responsibility for the duration of the task--team leader, chief recorder, and resource manager. This…

Meadows, Michelle; Caniglia, Joanne – Mathematics Teacher: Learning and Teaching PK-12, 2021
According to former National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) president Cathy L. Seeley (2014), students experience more success when they engage in doing mathematics (i.e., writing about or discussing mathematics, modeling situations, or exploring ideas in the classroom). She further recommended that teachers pose challenging problems or…

Seeley, Lane; Etkina, Eugenia; Vokos, Stamatis – Advances in STEM Education, 2018
In this chapter we envision the science classroom as an authentic scientific community. In this vision, student ideas can influence the trajectory of scientific investigation. Teachers serve as experts and guides, but they also can learn alongside their students. To do this, they need to listen to the students and be able to build on students'…

Custer, Gordon F.; van Diepen, Linda T. A.; Seeley, Janel – Natural Sciences Education, 2021
Quantitative literacy is necessary to keep pace with the exponentially increasing magnitude of biological data and the complexity of statistical tools. However, statistical programming can cause anxiety in new learners and educators alike. In order to produce graduates that are well-prepared for quantitative research, overcoming the initial…

Seeley, Eugene L.; Andrade, Maureen; Miller, Ronald Mellado – e-Journal of Business Education and Scholarship of Teaching, 2018
To reduce test-taking anxiety among businesses students, a Paired Adaptive Test (PAT) system was developed that allows students two chances to answer exam questions. In the study 46 students from three sections of Survey of International Business at Utah Valley University were given exams using the PAT. At the end of the semester, students were…

Seeley, Claire – Primary Science, 2012
The children at the author's school have a natural love for, and curiosity about astronomy. This led to a project full of awe and wonder for her year 5 students (ages 9-10) as they delved deeper into the science of the universe. The study of astronomy is underpinned by some very awesome numbers--something that can both terrify and intrigue adults…

Murray, Christopher; Kosty, Derek; Doren, Bonnie; Gau, Jeff M.; Seeley, John R. – Developmental Psychology, 2021
Interest in the pathways young people take from high school to early adulthood indicates that participation in early employment and postsecondary education facilitates long-term independence, agency, and career stability (Eliason et al., 2015; Shanahan et al., 2002). Although many adolescents with disabilities do not participate in these early…
