Ngu, Bing Hiong; Phan, Huy Phuong – Pedagogies: An International Journal, 2016
We examined the use of balance and inverse methods in equation solving. The main difference between the balance and inverse methods lies in the operational line (e.g. +2 on both sides vs -2 becomes +2). Differential element interactivity favours the inverse method because the interaction between elements occurs on both sides of the equation for…

Malsbary, Christine Brigid; Espinoza, Samantha; Bales, Lisa – Pedagogies: An International Journal, 2016
In usual understandings of learning, youths' development in classrooms is portrayed as a move from being a novice to an expert.

Hawkins, Lisa K.; Certo, Janine L. – Pedagogies: An International Journal, 2014
Poetry is one of the most feared and least understood literary genres in our public schools. Boys, in particular, are frequently perceived to be resistant to poetry instruction; a view that often stems from a limited vision of what poetry is and a misread of masculinity. Nevertheless, the study of poetry provides many benefits in the journey to…
