Thorkildsen, Theresa A.; Driver, Persis – Theory Into Practice, 2017
Integrity in student-teacher interaction is more likely when students and teachers tactfully disrupt the pacing of efficient, but fragmented lessons. Yet, teachers sometimes cling to fragmented, oversimplified definitions of knowledge, and defensively manage classroom behavior by controlling students' access to information. Ironically, adolescents…

Lawrence, Ann M.; Crespo, Sandra – Theory Into Practice, 2016
We contend that the classroom-discourse routine of IRE/F (teacher initiation, student response, teacher evaluation/follow-up) is a genre of argumentation that is both collaborative and implicit because teachers and students cooperate during IRE/F exchanges not only to make and mirror knowledge claims but also to suppress justification for those…

Johnston, Peter; Dozier, Cheryl; Smit, Julie – Theory Into Practice, 2016
For students to learn optimally, teachers must design classrooms that are responsive to the full range of student development. The teacher must be adaptive, but so must each student and the learning culture itself. In other words, adaptive teaching means constructing a responsive learning culture that accommodates and even capitalizes on diversity…

Johnson, Elisabeth; Vasudevan, Lalitha – Theory Into Practice, 2012
In this article, the authors argue that teachers and researchers must expand current verbo- and logo-centric definitions of critical literacy to recognize how texts and responses are embodied.

Pandya, Jessica Zacher – Theory Into Practice, 2012
In this article, I critique a component of the highly structured Open Court Reading curriculum designed to teach elementary children "inquiry and higher-order thinking" skills. The intended outcome of this component is, I argue, the production of critically literate and informed consumers of information. However, both the critical…

Goldin-Meadow, Susan – Theory Into Practice, 2004
When children explain their answers to a problem, they convey their thoughts not only in speech but also in the gestures that accompany that speech. Teachers, when explaining problems to a child, also convey information in both speech and gesture. Thus, there is an undercurrent of conversation that takes place in gesture alongside the acknowledged…
