Daniels, Jey; Bowers, Lynn; Cook, Megan; D'Antonio, Mark; Foltz, Amber; McCombs, Carlita; Sound, John; VanCuren, Jenni – Inquiry, 2019
Most experienced educators recognize that many students will not complete optional assignments, and often those students who need additional help do not seek assistance. Current research demonstrates that students in underrepresented populations (see definition below) are less likely to seek support than others because they see needing help as a…

Lott, Kimberly; Lott, Alan; Ence, Hannah – Science and Children, 2018
Inquiry-based active learning in science is helpful to all students but especially to those who have a hearing loss. For many deaf or hard of hearing students, the English language may be their second language, with American Sign Language (ASL) being their primary language. Therefore, many of the accommodations for the deaf are similar to those…

Gunning, Amanda M.; Marrero, Meghan E.; Buonamano, Christina; Somers, Vita – Science and Children, 2018
Waves and sound are rooted in children's everyday experiences. This topic naturally extends to other topics, such as instruments and music, which children find very interesting. As children often see science as separate from their daily lives, it is important to help them make real-life connections. The unit begins with children's observations,…

Trantham, Kenneth W.; Janssen, L. – Physics Teacher, 2019
The construction of a linear speaker array, which emits coherent sound radiation from multiple sources, is described. The device is an improvement over the two-speaker systems for demonstrating wave interference effects. The operation of the array is demonstrated with example data.

Ruiz, Michael J.; Perkins, James – Physics Education, 2017
Producing a deep bass tone by striking a large 3 m (10 ft) flexible corrugated drainage pipe immediately grabs student attention. The fundamental pitch of the corrugated tube is found to be a semitone lower than a non-corrugated smooth pipe of the same length. A video (https://youtu.be/FU7a9d7N60Y) of the demonstration is included, which…

Grant, Julian – Primary Science, 2017
In this article, Julian Grant, a Prep VI class teacher at Bridgewater School, Worsley, Manchester, explores the cross-curricular nature of language in scientific recording and how children can waken an audible science world with words. The ideas that came from what started as an applied vocabulary exercise demonstrated just how many…

Arana, Renelinda; Castaneda-Sound, Carrie; Blanchard, Steve; Aguilar, Teresita E. – Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, 2011
By examining Hispanic students both currently and formerly enrolled at a private, Hispanic-serving Institution located in the Southwestern region of the United States, this study attempts to understand the factors that lead to Hispanic undergraduate persistence to graduation. Adapting Bronfenbrenner's theoretical approach, this study explores…

Lentz, Jennifer J.; He, Yuan – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2020
Purpose: The goal of this study was to establish the perceptual underpinnings of the terms that are commonly used by patients when describing the quality of their tinnitus. Method: Using a free-classification method, 15 subjects with normal hearing placed 60 different tinnitus-like sounds into similarity clusters on a grid. Multidimensional…

Menon, Deepika; Lankford, Deanna – Science and Children, 2016
From the earliest days of their lives, children are exposed to all kinds of sound, from soft, comforting voices to the frightening rumble of thunder. Consequently, children develop their own naïve explanations largely based upon their experiences with phenomena encountered every day. When new information does not support existing conceptions,…

Miller, Jennifer – Science and Children, 2016
Jennifer Miller is a special education preschool teacher at Grant Elementary School in Muscatine, Iowa. In this article, she describes how she created and implemented a learning center with three-to-five-year-old students in an integrated morning class (nine students; four on IEPs) and an integrated afternoon class (10 students; four on IEPs) to…

Casey, Stephanie A.; Bostic, Jonathan D. – Mathematics Teaching in the Middle School, 2016
The Common Core's Standards for Mathematical Practice (SMP) call for all K-grade 12 students to develop expertise in the processes and proficiencies of doing mathematics. However, the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) (CCSSI 2010) as a whole addresses students' learning of not only mathematics but also statistics. This situation…

Florea, Catalin – Physics Teacher, 2019
In almost any given day, one will stumble upon sounds that are out of the ordinary, distinct enough to capture one's attention. Ordinary sounds in a home are represented by the white-noise-like background created by speaking, moving around, household appliances running, and so forth. The out of the ordinary is the sparkling sound of a knife blade…

Wolfram, Walt – Teaching Tolerance, 2013
Linguist Rosina Lippi-Green concludes in her book, "English with an Accent: Language, Ideology, and Discrimination in the United States," "Accent discrimination can be found everywhere in our daily lives. In fact, such behavior is so commonly accepted, so widely perceived as appropriate, that it must be seen as the last back door to…
