Sengupta-Irving, Tesha; Tunney, Jessica; Macias, Meghan – Cognition and Instruction, 2021
Heterogeneity is fundamental to learning and when leveraged in instruction, can benefit racially minoritized children. However, finding ways to leverage heterogeneity toward disciplinary teaching is a formidable challenge and teachers can benefit from targeted support to recognize heterogeneity in STEM, and its relationship to race and racism in…

Leyva, Luis A.; Quea, Ruby; Weber, Keith; Battey, Dan; López, Daniel – Cognition and Instruction, 2021
Undergraduate mathematics education can be experienced in discouraging and marginalizing ways among Black students, Latin* students, and white women. Precalculus and calculus courses, in particular, operate as gatekeepers that contribute to racialized and gendered attrition in persistence with mathematics coursework and pursuits in STEM (science,…

Morales-Doyle, Daniel; Varelas, Maria; Segura, David; Bernal-Munera, Marcela – Cognition and Instruction, 2021
This study examines the development of secondary preservice science teachers' (PSTs') sociopolitical understandings in the context of a yearlong, masters-level, justice-oriented teacher education program. It articulates a theoretical perspective regarding teachers' conceptions of the work-of-teaching in terms of pedagogical and disciplinary…

Takeuchi, Miwa Aoki – Cognition and Instruction, 2021
This study critically examines how the geopolitical configuration of identities, through the medium of the institutionalized label of "English language learners," can shape and constrain localized experiences for learners. An ethnographic video study was conducted in the context of a mathematics unit ("the transforming recess…

Robertson, Amy D.; Gray, Kara E.; Lovegren, Clarissa E.; Killough, Kathryn L.; Wenzinger, Scott T. – Cognition and Instruction, 2021
Responsive instruction--or instruction that foregrounds and takes up the disciplinary substance of student thinking--is both a hallmark of recent STEM education reforms and challenging to enact. This kind of instruction may be especially challenging in instructional contexts that mandate or rely on curriculum with set, structured learning…

Schwarz, Christina V.; Braaten, Melissa; Haverly, Christa; de los Santos, Elizabeth X. – Cognition and Instruction, 2021
Eliciting, noticing, and responding to students' sense-making is important for advancing students' understanding and fostering meaningful participation in science. By sense-making, we mean wrestling with ideas, language, experiences, and perspectives in a community to figure out how and why the world works. In the bustle of an elementary…

Wilson, Nicholas C. – Cognition and Instruction, 2021
This paper presents two examples of production-centered, technology-mediated activities in a one-to-one laptop classroom, and examines how those activities supported vastly divergent forms of student agency and participation. As schools turn to large-scale technology programs, such as one-to-one initiatives, to overcome persistent educational and…

Jay, Lightning – Cognition and Instruction, 2021
After three decades of scholarship describing why and how students ought to be taught to think historically, this study asks what happens when they are. Ten high school students from a school that incorporated historical thinking into all history coursework repeated the think-aloud task from Wineburg's 1991 study of the cognitive processes…

Bal, Aydin; Afacan, Kemal; Clardy, Tremayne; Cakir, Halil Ibrahim – Cognition and Instruction, 2021
This article presents a formative intervention study, called "Learning Lab" that facilitated the collective design of a culturally responsive behavioral support system at an urban middle school in the United States. Learning Lab united parents, teachers, support staff, education leaders, and researchers, specifically those who have been…

Keifert, Danielle Teodora – Cognition and Instruction, 2021
Prior research shows that participation within communities of practice shapes children's development of repertoires of practice--ways of engaging in activities within a cultural community. Families are a privileged community for learning because of the extensive time spent together, the intimate nature of family relations, and the importance of…

DeLiema, David; Enyedy, Noel; Steen, Francis; Danish, Joshua A. – Cognition and Instruction, 2021
Gesture is recognized as part of and integral to cognition. The value of gesture for learning is contingent on how it gathers meaning against the ground of other relevant resources in the setting--in short, how the body is laminated onto the surrounding environment. With a focus on lamination, this paper formulates an integrated theory of…

Radinsky, Josh – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
Learning in data-rich environments has been a focus of learning sciences research since the inception of the field, with increasing interest in the ways learners "narrate data." This article examines the narration of data from the perspective of "learning on the move," identifying mobilities of data, and of the narratives in…

Kelton, Molly L.; Ma, Jasmine Y. – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
In this article, we report on a video-based field study of an intergenerational family's enactment of a mathematical object (a torus) in the context of an immersive mathematics exhibition in a science center. To do this, we center interwoven, multi-party mobilities at multiple scales--walking, gesturing, touching, and postural adjustments -- as…

Hall, Rogers; Shapiro, Ben Rydal; Hostetler, Andrew; Lubbock, Helen; Owens, David; Daw, Colleen; Fisher, Douglas – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
In this article, we introduce and analyze learning experiences made possible by a teaching framework that we have developed and call "digital spatial story lines" (DSSLs). DSSLs offer a novel approach to learning on the move by engaging learners with related conceptual practices of archival curation, digital mapping, and the production…

Marin, Ananda Maria – Cognition and Instruction, 2020
There is a growing corpus of research in the educational sciences that explores the multiple ways in which mobility, or people's movement from place to place and through places, both constitutes and influences learning. Ambulatory methods and walking interviews are increasingly being used by social scientists and performance researchers to…
