Benjamin, Steve; Wagner, Michael – Phi Delta Kappan, 2021
When we examine the state of writing instruction in many schools and classrooms, we find that few teachers are actually teaching students to become better writers in large part because they are relying on process models that do not accurately reflect the complex task of creating good writing and that are out of step with current research. Merely…

Tampio, Nicholas – Phi Delta Kappan, 2021
The Supreme Court ruled in San Antonio Independent School District v. Rodriguez (1973) that there is no constitutional right to education, but that has not stopped families and education activists from arguing that this right is implicit in the Fourteenth Amendment. Nicholas Tampio contends that, based upon the history of federal involvement in…

Reich, Justin – Phi Delta Kappan, 2021
For decades, technology advocates have claimed that we are on the cusp of a complete transformation in education. But, as Justin Reich explains, such transformations have not yet come to pass. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, teachers did not use technology to significantly alter their teaching. Instead, technology enabled them to maintain many…

Cain, Victoria E. M.; Laats, Adam – Phi Delta Kappan, 2021
Education leaders frequently turn to technological solutions to improve schools, often without evidence of their effectiveness. According to Victoria Cain and Adam Laats, this pattern of leaders pouring money into new technological systems and then being disappointed in the results goes back centuries. They describe how, in the early 1800s,…

Murphy, Kristin M.; Cook, Amy L.; Fallon, Lindsay M. – Phi Delta Kappan, 2021
Although social-emotional learning is associated with long-term success in school and careers, it is often a missing link in U.S. public education. The COVID-19 pandemic has intensified the need for social-emotional supports for children. In this time of crisis, educators have also sought new ways to make connections and reimagined how students…

Rafalow, Matthew H. – Phi Delta Kappan, 2021
Conversations about digital inequality in education often revolve around access to technology. However, research into youth culture has shown that many Black and Latinx teens are able to access technology and have developed the same digital skills as their white peers. Social scientist Matt Rafalow observed three California middle schools where…

Peters, Scott J.; Carter, James; Plucker, Jonathan A. – Phi Delta Kappan, 2021
In the 21st century, what does a defensible, equitable model of gifted and talented student identification look like? For too long, gifted education's reason for being has been unclear, and the students it has served have been from too narrow a segment of the student population. With renewed attention to equity and personalized learning, gifted…

Dixson, Dante D.; Peters, Scott J.; Makel, Matthew C.; Jolly, Jennifer L.; Matthews, Michael S.; Miller, Erin M.; Rambo-Hernandez, Karen E.; Rinn, Anne N.; Robins, Jennifer H.; Wilson, Hope E. – Phi Delta Kappan, 2021
Schools exist to educate, yet the emphasis on age-based, grade-level standards fails to account for the wide range of academic readiness that exists in every classroom. Special education programs exist to meet student needs; gifted education should be no different. The authors, all gifted education researchers, present a vision for a model of…

Wai, Jonathan; Worrell, Frank C. – Phi Delta Kappan, 2021
Finding and developing talented youth from low-income backgrounds is an ongoing challenge for U.S. gifted education policy. These students face strong headwinds, whereas advantaged students enjoy favorable tailwinds, and these factors accumulate throughout K-12, higher education, and beyond. Jonathan Wai and Frank C. Worrell explain how talented…

Vega, Desireé; Puff, Alaina M. – Phi Delta Kappan, 2021
When debating how best to support the college aspirations of students of color, education reformers tend to zero in on efforts to improve teacher quality. However, recent research on the factors that promote college-going among Black and Latinx students point to the key roles played by many of the adults in their lives, including not only teachers…

Kolluri, Suneal – Phi Delta Kappan, 2021
Although participation in Advanced Placement programs has been expanding rapidly across the United States, participation among marginalized students generally, and boys of color in particular, has remained lower than for other students. In his observations at an urban high school, Suneal Kolluri found that, if they were going to put in the work…

Lakin, Joni M.; Wai, Jonathan – Phi Delta Kappan, 2021
Spatial reasoning -- the ability to mentally visualize, transform, and recognize symbolic information -- is known to predict long-term success in many educational and occupational areas, including in STEM. Despite this, spatial reasoning measures are virtually absent in K-12 tests. Thus, such strengths are not prioritized in gifted identification…
