Meyer, Tom – Schools: Studies in Education, 2020
Educators carry self-constructed narratives about who they are as professionals. When they tell and retell versions of these stories to their students (and themselves), these stories become part of the curriculum. This article suggests that with the students, by examining stories "concealed" within educators' "stock" stories,…

Donaldson, Maleka – Schools: Studies in Education, 2020
Making mistakes is at the heart of learning. Prior research has established the value of trial and error and corrective feedback, however, inquiries into the experience of learning from mistakes in real-world contexts are rare.

The literature on the uses of gamification in education is increasingly popularizing the implementation of game elements in nongame environments, but the scholarship tends to remain theoretical and lacks a focus on practical application for educators seeking to utilize gamified methods.

Teachers at a, mostly white, independent school met monthly for a year, discussing how to talk with children from pre-K through eighth grade about race.

Fornaciari, Aleksi – Schools: Studies in Education, 2019
In educational research, the teaching profession is often treated as interaction located only in the classroom, with less attention to other aspects of school reality. Some studies, and the Finnish national curriculum (2014), suggest that the school system needs more practices that aim at negotiation, cooperation, and interaction with the…

Furman, Cara – Schools: Studies in Education, 2019
Much has been written about the importance of giving personal attention to children's written work. The focus has been on the effect of this feedback on the writing and on the child. Drawing on the philosophical discourse of the care of the self, I argue that the ways in which a teacher gives feedback informs the development of the teacher.…

In this article, three educators 12 years into their careers discuss what they've learned about teaching.

Photo-elicitation interviewing (PEI) is a technique in which photographs are used within an interview context.
