The acronym STEM is a ubiquitous term for seemingly anything in--or related to--the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, and the current dominant educational STEM discourse in teacher education is often organized around questions of how to integrate math and science into the other content areas or vice versa.

Bower-Phipps, Laura – Issues in Teacher Education, 2017
Significant progress has been made in equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA) individuals, yet schools remain institutions where sexual and gender diversity are marginalized and/or silenced.

Nadelson, Louis S.; Pluska, Heidi; Moorcroft, Scott; Jeffrey, Annie; Woodard, Susan – Issues in Teacher Education, 2014
As with many previous K-12 educational reform efforts, expectations that the Common Core State Standards (CCSS; National Governors Association Center for Best Practices, 2010) will assist students in learning so that they can prepare for college and the workforce are very high (American College Testing, 2012). Briefly, the CCSS "are designed…

Walton, Janet – Issues in Teacher Education, 2014
The label of "teacher" is something of a misnomer for the problem-based learning (PBL) practitioner. Rather than acting as a source of content knowledge, PBL educators are lead learners who demonstrate learning to students through their own authentic inquiry (Hmelo-Silver, 2004). PBL educators and students travel a road together that…

Adams, LaNysha T. – Issues in Teacher Education, 2014
In education, professional development (PD) is the continuing education of teachers and administrators.

Lafferty, Karen Elizabeth; Pang, Valerie Ooka – Issues in Teacher Education, 2014
Required courses in teacher education programs can sometimes prompt less-than-positive responses from pre-service teachers.

Howard, Keith – Issues in Teacher Education, 2013
The purpose of this article is to examine the potential risks of bringing social networking sites (SNS) into the classroom through the lens of Moor's (1999) just-consequentialist theory. Moor compares the setting of ethical policies in the fast-changing world of technology to a sailor trying to set a course while sailing. His analogy could not be…

Nguyen, Huong Tran – Issues in Teacher Education, 2012
The Census 2000 Brief (U.S. Department of Commerce, 2004b) indicates that English is not the heritage language of approximately one in five Americans, and the number of limited English proficient (LEP) students, also known as English language learners (ELLs), grew about 50 percent in the last decade. It is estimated that nearly 400,000 ELL…

Jones, Laura C.; Webb, P. Taylor; Neumann, Maureen – Issues in Teacher Education, 2008
Teaching literacy skills is inextricably meshed with the work of transformation.

Leadership for social justice is a democratic, empowering relationship…

Grisham, Dana L. – Issues in Teacher Education, 2008
Research has identified certain comprehension strategies that seem to work in an optimal manner to increase the reading comprehension of K-12 students. However, little evidence exists about whether teachers use identified, research-based strategies when teaching. In view of the critical nature of literacy achievement for diverse populations and…

Lindquist, David H. – Issues in Teacher Education, 2007
The Holocaust is perhaps the most compelling topic studied in American schools today. Many educators who consider teaching the Holocaust feel deterred from doing so for several reasons: (1) They lack the confidence needed to develop a Holocaust unit; (2) They feel that the subject's complexity is overwhelming historically and pedagogically because…
