Du, Wenbin; Liu, Denghui; Johnson, Carla C.; Sondergeld, Toni A.; Bolshakova, Virginia L. J.; Moore, Tamara J. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
This study of a state-funded, 3-year implementation of an integrated STEM professional development (PD) program for teachers from two middle schools in the midwestern U.S. examined if participants in the PD were enabled to transform their practice and perceptions of STEM. An integrated STEM approach includes a focus on the STEM disciplines, along…

Baliram, Nalline; Ellis, Arthur K. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of metacognitive strategies and content-specific feedback on student achievement in high school mathematics. Participants consisted of a convenience sample of students in honors geometry. An analysis of variance with repeated measures was employed to address the research questions. For both the…

Brandl, Rayelynn; Alvarado, Arlene; Peltomaa, Abigail – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
The Clark Fork Watershed Education Program (CFWEP) goals are: (a) increasing students' understanding of the nature of ecological impacts within their watershed as related to historic mining damage; and (b) increasing students' sense of stewardship of newly restored landscapes. Data from 2012 to 2016 were evaluated for student knowledge gains (46…

Bicer, Ali; Capraro, R. M. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
The purpose of this study is to compare students' mathematics achievement growth rate in Texas science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (T-STEM) academies to students' mathematics achievement growth rate in traditional public high schools. Forty-six schools, 23 of which were T-STEM academies and 23 of which were matched non-STEM schools,…

Olson, Amy M.; Stoehr, Kathleen Jablon – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
This paper presents qualitative and quantitative approaches to exploring teachers' experiences of mathematics anxiety (for learning and doing mathematics) and mathematics teaching anxiety (for instructing others in mathematics), the relationship between these types of anxiety and test/evaluation anxiety, and the impacts of anxiety on experiences…

Peters-Burton, Erin E.; House, Ann; Peters, Vanessa; Remold, Julie – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Increasingly, STEM focused high schools are used prepare students for college STEM majors and launch them into STEM careers. Yet a new focus on STEM education at the elementary levels suggests that the importance of STEM education is much broader than a preparation for workforce needs in high school or college. This paper describes a case study…

Siverling, Emilie A.; Suazo-Flores, Elizabeth; Mathis, Corey A.; Moore, Tamara J. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Engineering design-based STEM integration is one potential model to help students integrate content and practices from all of the STEM disciplines. In this study, we explored the intersection of two aspects of pre-college STEM education: the integration of the STEM disciplines, and the NGSS practice of engaging in argument from evidence within…

Cormas, Peter C.; Middlemiss, Samantha – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Mathematics and science have similar learning processes (SLPs) and it has been proposed that courses focused on these and other similarities promote transfer across disciplines. However, it is not known how the use of these processes in lessons taught to children change throughout a preservice teacher education course or which are most likely to…

Campbell, Todd; Gray, Ron; Fazio, Xavier – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
This research explores how explaining an anchoring phenomena and engaging students in investigations, as central designs of a model-based inquiry (MBI) unit, afforded or constrained the representation of scientific activity in the science classroom. This research is considered timely as recent standards documents and scholars in the field have…

Nesmith, Suzanne M.; Cooper, Sandi – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Young children are capable of engaging in STEM investigations when they are guided by skilled and knowledgeable teachers. However, many elementary teachers may lack sufficient STEM content knowledge and report feeling unprepared to teach STEM content. Two university faculty members in mathematics and science education, worked to cultivate and…

Hong, Dae S.; Choi, Kyong Mi; Runnalls, Cristina; Hwang, Jihyun – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Among dozens of factors that influence mathematics teaching in the elementary classroom, textbooks endure as a significant contributor to the conversation. While teachers have many considerations while lesson planning, the textbook often forms an important launch point in determining what to include in lessons and how to do so. It follows that…

Kosko, Karl W. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Visual representations and manipulatives are a highly advocated mathematical tool for the teaching and learning of multiplication and division. Although there is some prior research on elementary teachers' general use of manipulatives and visual representations, there is little to no specific focus on use of such representations on a specific…

Killough, Joy K.; Stuessy, Carol L. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Can participation in a 4-day workshop change science teachers' beliefs about reformed science teaching? We observe a significant difference between pre- and post-workshop surveys and explore an unexpected relationship involving teaching experience. Results of this exploratory study indicate a significant correlation between high school science…

Stohlmann, Micah – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Of the four subjects in an integrated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) approach, mathematics has not received enough focus. This could be in part because mathematics teachers may be apprehensive or unsure about how to implement integrated STEM education in their classrooms. There are benefits to integrated STEM in a…

Carpenter, Stacey L.; Iveland, Ashley; Moon, Sungmin; Hansen, Alexandria K.; Harlow, Danielle B.; Bianchini, Julie A. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
We investigated beginning secondary science teachers' understandings of the science and engineering practice of developing and using models. Our study was situated in a scholarship program that served two groups: undergraduate STEM majors interested in teaching, or potential teachers, and graduate students enrolled in a teacher education program…
