Vagle, Mark D.; Monette, Rachel; Thiel, Jaye Johnson; Wester-Neal, Katie – Pedagogies: An International Journal, 2017
The purpose of this article is to re-conceptualize Schön's call for a phenomenology of practice--moving away from reflection and towards "post-reflexion"--by explicitly drawing on philosophical and methodological tenets of phenomenology, specifically some of Vagle's theorizing of a "post-intentional phenomenology." Finally, we…

Yeh, Chun-Chun – Pedagogies: An International Journal, 2017
The teacher-student writing conference has long been recognized as being able to provide personalized instruction and contribute to learners' writing development.

As the tools and modes of literate practice continually emerge, so too must our critical approaches to understanding their expression. While media production has been praised for its potential to provide youth a voice to challenge dominant narratives, various questions remain as to what happens at the multimodal levels of composition in terms of…

Rogers, Rebecca; Mosley Wetzel, Melissa; O'Daniels, Katherine – Pedagogies: An International Journal, 2016
Critical literacy requires an exploration of privilege and social justice. This includes an exploration of power and action in one's "inner" and "outer" lives. This qualitative case study illustrates the ways in which Jonah, a preservice teacher, navigates social practices and actions in his roles as a student, activist, and…

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…

von Duyke, Katherine; Matusov, Eugene – Pedagogies: An International Journal, 2016
In an innovative, progressive school, students were asked to solve a fairly routine mathematical problem using real money in a "real-world" scenario. Even though the school values students' ideas, the reaction of the teacher to one student's alternative modelling of the problem suggests that he was expecting a particular answer to be…

At the same time that creativity, play, and inquiry are receiving special focus in academic, professional, and educational settings, mandated assessments have never been more prominent, despite public debates that question the value of such testing. In the context of these apparently contradictory developments in literacy education, as a…
