DeMatthews, David – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2020
A long history of racism and ableism exists within the U.S. and shapes policies, practices, and assumptions within the public education system. Racism and ableism are built into educator and principal practices, which contribute to the reproduction of inequitable systems and outcomes. Yet, principals are in a key position to challenge dominant…

Morgan, Hani – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2020
Many prominent researchers have published articles and books to raise awareness about the inequalities students from low-income families experience in public schools.

Wellenreiter, Benjamin R. – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2020
The Pledge of Allegiance is a culturally essential--and often legally mandated--daily exercise in many schools. With societal focus on patriotic exercises and many individuals' subsequent refusal to engage in these exercises, it is important for preservice and inservice teachers to examine their approaches to students who refuse to recite the…

McPherson, Joyce – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2020
Active learning challenges students to learn through experience and reflection on what they have done (Frost, Levitt, and Kosslyn 2017). As this pedagogy has developed, the principles have been useful in teaching a variety of subjects. This paper discusses research from many disciplines and observations from sixteen years of working with secondary…

Bowman, Richard F. – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2020
The human brain is a social organ. Whatever an educator's instructional goals or lesson plans, students' brains experience the classroom first and foremost as a social system. Neuroscience research suggests that the organizing principle of the brain is one of "minimizing danger, maximizing reward." Recent social cognitive neuroscience…

Stein, Les – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2020
Few will argue that great schools are the by-products of great teachers. What is less obvious to most people is that the best teachers do not manage their students, they lead them. Far too often, teachers are characterized as managers, which explains our educational system's focus on classroom management, rather than leadership skills. Improving…

Whitman, Gretchen Marie – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2020
The absence of comprehensive educational theory regarding dress codes results in deference to community norms as a way to determine implementation and compliance. Implementing dress codes ultimately results in inconsistent practices and violations of students' rights. To the detriment to student learning, dress codes disproportionately affect…

McMillan, James H.; Moore, Stephanie – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2020
An important element of the classroom assessment event and student performance occurs when students are wrong, which is often denigrated in our success-oriented secondary schools where only being right is valued and reinforced. This article argues that being wrong (sometimes) is an essential experience that enhances learning and motivation.…

Groth, Randall E.; Bergner, Jennifer A.; Weaver, Starlin D.; Welsh, Gail S. – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2020
For many years, lesson study has been woven into the professional lives of Japanese teachers. Recently, it has become more widespread in the U.S. Core elements of Japanese Lesson Study include collaborative lesson design, empirical trials of lessons, collective analysis of empirical trials, and subsequent lesson re-design. We describe how these…

McDaniel, Thomas R. – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2020
In the age of litigation, teachers have a responsibility to protect students in their care from injury, to act as a reasonably prudent teacher would act to prevent loss or damage to their students, and to exercise sound judgement and authority over students, to correct misbehavior and to provide for their orderly instruction. Whenever a teacher is…

McDaniel, Thomas R. – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2020
In 1980 I published an article in "The Clearing House" that examined a host of questions that teachers were asking about the practice of corporal punishment in the classroom. This was a method frequently used at that time to deal with discipline problems teachers encountered. In this present article I revisit those questions to see what…

Terry, Troy M. – Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, 2020
Fifty years ago, John G. Davis published an article on Teacher Dismissal on grounds of immorality and the "new morality" of the 1970s. While much has changed in terms of morality and moral turpitude in 50 years, this article reviews the current case law and reasons teachers continue to be fired today over issues of immorality and sexual…

In response to the spread of COVID-19, a new coronavirus, many U.S. schools have implemented remote learning. This approach to education can prevent students from experiencing setbacks during school closures. However, some schools do not have enough resources to provide learning opportunities for students, and not all children have internet access…
