Stornaiuolo, Amy – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
This article centers sociocultural and sociopolitical considerations of how young people understand, represent, and use data by presenting findings from a social design research study about how students in a public urban high school authored "data stories" using personal data they curated, collected, and visualized. The study contributes…

Hardy, Lisa; Dixon, Colin; Hsi, Sherry – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
This paper contributes a theoretical framework informed by historical, philosophical and ethnographic studies of science practice to argue that data should be considered to be actively produced, rather than passively collected. We further argue that traditional school science laboratory investigations misconstrue the nature of data and overly…

Kahn, Jennifer – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Open large-scale datasets (LSDS) and data visualization technologies are new cultural tools that have potential to inform public dialogue and learning about important socioeconomic and scientific matters, particularly if the data is used to consider both personal and shared experiences. This paper reports on a design study in which diverse middle…

Van Wart, Sarah; Lanouette, Kathryn; Parikh, Tapan S. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Data increasingly mediates how we understand the world. As such, there is growing interest in designing initiatives to help young people learn about data--not only the techno-mathematical skills necessary to work with data, but also the dispositions needed to participate in data-centric ways of knowing and doing. In this article, we argue that as…

Freedman, Eric B. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2020
Background: Despite its numerous benefits, dialogic discussion seldom occurs in secondary history classrooms. To examine ways to promote it, this study compared two ninth-grade classes' productive disciplinary engagement (PDE) in a whole-class discussion on the Gulf of Tonkin incident. Methods: The two class sections were comparable academically…

Levine, Sarah – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
Research in literary response indicates that in classroom contexts, high school students have difficulty constructing thematic interpretations of literary texts, tending instead to summarize or build happiness-bound morals that ignore a text's potentially negative tones. However, studies in out-of-school contexts show students building thematic…

Walsh, Elizabeth M.; Tsurusaki, Blakely K. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2018
When engaging with socioscientific issues, learners act at the intersection of scientific, school, and other societal communities, drawing on knowledge, practices, and identities from both in and out of the classroom to address problems as national or global citizens. We present three case studies of high school students whose classroom…

Rubel, Laurie H.; Hall-Wieckert, Maren; Lim, Vivian Y. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
This article presents a set of spatial tools for classroom learning about spatial justice. As part of a larger team, we designed a curriculum that engaged 10 learners with 3 spatial tools: (a) an oversized floor map, (b) interactive geographic information systems (GIS) maps, and (c) participatory mapping. We analyze how these tools supported…

Allen, Carrie D.; Eisenhart, Margaret – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
In this article, we investigate how the national imperative to increase opportunities for young women of color in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and to broaden their participation was taken up locally at two high schools in one school district. Using ethnographic and longitudinal data, we focus on four young women of…

Nasir, Na'ilah Suad; Vakil, Sepehr – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
Drawing on data from a study of learning, race, and equity in an urban high school organized around specialized learning academies, we examine the ways in which the design, framing, construction, and organization of learning spaces deeply influences the types of access to rigorous learning that students experience. We draw on the notion of…

Van Horne, Katie; Bell, Philip – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
Recent science educational policy reform efforts call for a shift toward practice-focused instruction in kindergarten-Grade 12 science education. We argue that this focus on engaging students in epistemic practices of science opens up new possibilities for the design of learning environments that support the stabilization of learners'…

Sosa, Teresa; Hall, Allison H.; Goldman, Susan R.; Lee, Carol D. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2016
Literature can be a powerful resource for adolescents' psychosocial development, as it provides opportunities to experience the world through the perspectives of others and juxtapose these with one's own experiences. However, gaining access to these perspectives requires going beyond literal words on the page to explore interpretive meanings. This…

Langer-Osuna, Jennifer M. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2015
This article investigates the coconstruction of student identity and engagement in the case of a 9th grader in a project-based algebra classroom that afforded students a great deal of autonomy. The focal student, Terrance, utilized classroom resources to serve both project-related and social functions as he interacted with his peers during…

Wilkerson-Jerde, Michelle Hoda; Wilensky, Uri J. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2015
The learning sciences community has made significant progress in understanding how people think and learn about complex systems. But less is known about how people make sense of the quantitative patterns and mathematical formalisms often used to study these systems. In this article, we make a case for attending to and supporting connections…

Esmonde, Indigo – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
This article investigates how affluent students made sense of social justice issues that were embedded in mathematics learning activities. I present 2 case studies of such activities at the intermediate and secondary levels in 2 different schools. The analysis draws on video records and classroom artifacts and applies the theoretical framework of…
