Baker, Courtney K.; Saclarides, Evthokia Stephanie; Harbour, Kristin E.; Hjalmarson, Margret A.; Livers, Stefanie D.; Edwards, Katherine Comey – School Science and Mathematics, 2022
For the past forty years, United States school districts have increasingly hired mathematics specialists to support the teaching and learning of mathematics. Despite the prevalence of this professional development structure, this is a relatively new research topic for the mathematics education field. In this paper, we report findings from an…

Webel, Corey; Conner, Kimberly A.; Sheffel, Christina – School Science and Mathematics, 2022
In this article, we describe the case of "Keri," a fifth-grade teacher who had completed an Elementary Mathematics Specialist (EMS) certification program. Drawn from a larger study investigating the knowledge, beliefs, and practices of EMSs, Keri's case was unique in that she was teaching mathematics to four classes in a departmentalized…

Boda, Phillip A.; James, Katherine; Sotelo, Jose; McGee, Steven; Uttal, David – School Science and Mathematics, 2022
Disparities in Mathematics performance have been shown across race and gender for decades, although little research has reported the race by gender nexus in terms of disparity. In turn, research done to ameliorate these disparities have assumed that these differences are primarily among student populations who need remedial learning improvement.…

Sebald, Ann M.; Howe, John; Balgopal, Meena M. – School Science and Mathematics, 2022
A university-school district partnership program designed to increase recruitment and retention of science and mathematics teachers in schools identified as low performing by the school district, paired potential or novice teachers with veteran teachers in elementary or secondary schools. All participants received mentoring to build instructional…

Toma, Radu Bogdan – School Science and Mathematics, 2022
Guided and open inquiry strategies are found to improve students' attitudes toward science. Yet, confirmation and structured inquiry are more often enacted by teachers. The effectiveness of these approaches involving high teacher guidance remains unexplored. Students in six classes (N = 119, M[subscript age] = 11.25 years) were assigned to control…

Wilhelm, Jennifer; Cole, Merryn; Driessen, Emily; Ringl, Samantha; Hightower, Andromeda; Gonzalez-Napoleoni, Javier; Jones, Jasemine – School Science and Mathematics, 2022
This research with middle school students from Kentucky (KY) and Nevada (NV) provides a snapshot of students' spatial-scientific understandings as we explored how well students understand lunar-related content, both spatially and scientifically, after receiving instruction with similar curricular Earth-Space content. Utilizing a lens of spatial…

Polly, Drew; Wang, Chaung; Petty, Teresa; Binns, Ian – School Science and Mathematics, 2022
This study used hierarchical linear modeling (HLM) to examine the relationship of student, teacher, school, and district-level variables on students' mathematics achievement as measured on the Grade 5 end of year assessment in North Carolina. Analyses indicated that there were statistically significant relationships between gains in student…

Hong, Dae S.; Runnalls, Cristina – School Science and Mathematics, 2022
The purpose of this study was to explore how elementary preservice teachers (PSTs) responded to students' hypothetical misconceptions about volume measurement. We carried out both pre-assessments and follow-up interviews with 17 PSTs, with tasks focused on both volume content knowledge and hypothetical student responses to volume tasks.…

Namakshi, Nama; Warshauer, Hiroko K.; Strickland, Sharon; McMahon, Lauren – School Science and Mathematics, 2022
This mixed methods study explored the development of elementary and middle school preservice teachers' (PSTs) learning to assess student thinking through analysis of students' written work. Six sections of the first mathematics content course for teaching implemented two writing assignments focused on analysis of student work aligned to the…

Harkness, Shelly Sheats; Brass, Amy – School Science and Mathematics, 2022
Understanding large number data is essential for making sense of real-world problems. For the research reported here, our intent was to find connections between quantitative cognitive science studies and our prior qualitative study about participants' understanding of the relative size of large numbers. While all 23 cognitive science research…

Kruse, Jerrid; Menke, Lucas; Solem, Libby – School Science and Mathematics, 2022
Inquiry-based lab experiences have been shown to be more effective than traditional lab experiences. Students' perceptions of the types of thinking required in science lab settings have implications for interest and persistence. This study compares students' perceptions about the thinking required in traditional and inquiry laboratory settings.…

Helsel, Ryan T.; Lambert, Sammi; Dickerson, Lindsey; Strelich, Jack; Woods, Vanessa; Feldwinn, Darby – School Science and Mathematics, 2022
This study describes the design and implementation of a science outreach program (elementary; 2nd-5th) and its associated student outcomes. Key features of the program include: (a) phenomenon-based, NGSS-aligned curriculum designed by science education experts and influenced by educational, sociocultural, and cognitive science theories, (b) active…

Zwanch, Karen – School Science and Mathematics, 2022
This study presents the preliminary qualitative results of a larger mixed methods study. The qualitative phase utilized task-based clinical interviews to examine the non-symbolic and symbolic linear generalizations of middle-grades students. This investigation identified similarities and differences in the students' generalizations, and…

Gruver, John; Hawthorne, Casey – School Science and Mathematics, 2022
We further conceptualize the work of responsive teaching by contrasting it with a type of teaching we call endorsing. We define responsive teaching as a type of teaching in which the teacher: (a) ensures students' ideas are the genesis of ways of reasoning that are eventually taken up by the classroom community; and (b) continually assesses and…

Pizzolato, Larissa A. V.; Tsuji, Leonard J. S. – School Science and Mathematics, 2022
Citizen science, or the public participation in scientific research, is a mechanism for student engagement, and co-creation of knowledge in the scientific research process. Through participation in citizen science initiatives within school-based learning environments, students can gain field experience, direct project scope, and contribute to…
