As more and more children are being identified as needing special services, all teachers need to know special education laws.

Harwell, Michael – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2020
Accurate and consistent reviews of documents describing research studies are essential to valid and generalizable inferences in a meta-analysis. Traditionally a small number of reviewers screen studies using the title, abstract, and possibly the full text to determine a study's eligibility for a meta-analysis. This study explores whether reviewing…

Strategic planning refers to a deliberative approach to producing decisions to major challenges. Research-practice partnerships (RPP) are long-term collaborations between researchers and practitioners organized to investigate solutions in school districts.

Ferrell, Elizabeth W.; Ensminger, David; Coleman, Elizabeth – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
In this article, we contribute to dialogue about the capstone for most doctoral programs: the dissertation. More specifically, we explore the mentorship between doctoral student and chair and assert that using a nontraditional dissertation format affords more fulfilling relationships for the mentee and mentor. Having recently completed…

Many Black women doctoral students entering and persisting through graduate study lack the affirmation, community, and resources necessary to confidently assert themselves as members of the academy. These barriers make it especially difficult for Black women to effectively navigate doctoral programs that privilege and normalize elite white male…

Gibbons, Scott; Farley, Amy N. – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
The literature base is clear that when teachers reflect on their practice, they can identify areas of strength and areas of growth--both of which can improve the quality of their teaching (Jaeger, 2013). However, the realities of teaching today often mean teachers have many competing responsibilities and very little time between classes and after…

Cowin, Kathleen M; Newcomer, Sarah N. – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
The creation of a relational, co-mentoring community for aspiring school leaders during their certification program may allow these future leaders to participate in a peer-mentoring process wherein they engage one another in interdependence, experience reciprocal growth-fostering interactions, and tackle issues related to systemic power. The…

Hayden, Emily; Gratteau-Zinnel, Travis – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
Mentoring for early career teachers is well-documented. Less research exists on formal mentoring for pre-service teachers, but early attrition rates are so alarming that we cannot afford to lose any time in preparing novices for the challenges they will face. This research explored mentoring support provided to pre-service, or novice, teachers in…

Angelone, Lauren – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
The purpose of this paper is methodological. It serves as a defense of virtual ethnography as a method, not only well suited to postpositivist research, but as a tool to further interrogate the tenuous truth that all research produces. To accomplish this, virtual ethnography is situated within the history of qualitative inquiry and then examined…

James-Gallaway, ArCasia D. – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
This paper uses Derrick Bell's interest convergence principle, which argues that whites will support racial justice efforts only if they believe they will see gains for themselves, to examine white philanthropic support of Black education in the postbellum South and in current school reforms. Using the concept of "bad" (or compromising)…
