Weinberg, Andrea Elizabeth; Sample McMeeking, Laura Beth – School Science and Mathematics, 2017
Numerous national initiatives call for interdisciplinary mathematics and science education, but few empirical studies have examined practical considerations for integrated instruction in high school settings. The purpose of this qualitative study was twofold. First, the study sought to describe how and to what extent teachers integrate mathematics…

Dotger, Sharon; Barry, Deborah; Wiles, Jason; Benevento, Elizabeth; Brzozowski, Frances; Hurtado-Gonzales, Jorge; Jacobs, Nicole; Royse, Ellen; Sen, Debjeet; Snyder, Julia; Stokes, Robert; Wisner, Ellen – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2012
Existing research on the development of graduate students' teaching competency focuses on the need for their learning opportunities to be contextualized to their specific content area and course structure. A group of graduate teaching assistants collaborated with a biology professor and a science educator in a Japanese Lesson Study to directly…

Weinberg, Julia – Odyssey: New Directions in Deaf Education, 2011
A considerable amount of learning, especially in the early years, is incidental learning. What is incidental learning? It is learning that occurs simply through exposure to the environment--what people hear, see, and experience. It takes place in the natural course of events, without intentionally directed instruction about how or what to learn.…

Weinberg, Rebecca – Mass Insight Education (NJ1), 2011
Dramatically improving student achievement in a school that has been failing for many years requires dramatically different conditions. Only the most effective teachers and leaders should be in the building, and the leadership must have the flexibility to respond strategically to the needs of the students, with regular input from teachers.…

Brewer, Michael S.; Gardner, Grant E. – American Biology Teacher, 2013
Teaching population genetics provides a bridge between genetics and evolution by using examples of the mechanisms that underlie changes in allele frequencies over time. Existing methods of teaching these concepts often rely on computer simulations or hand calculations, which distract students from the material and are problematic for those with…

Weinberg, Aaron; Wiesner, Emilie; Fukawa-Connelly, Tim – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2016
Although lecture is the traditional method of university mathematics instruction, there has been little empirical research that describes the general structure of lectures. In this paper, we adapt ideas from narrative analysis and apply them to an upper-level mathematics lecture. We develop a framework that enables us to conceptualize the lecture…

Weinberg, Aaron; Wiesner, Emilie; Barr, John – North American Chapter of the International Group for the Psychology of Mathematics Education, 2016
Mathematics textbooks are a significant pedagogical tool, particularly in light of the growing interest in "flipped" classrooms. However, there has been little research on how mathematics students read and comprehend textbooks. This article uses the ideas of the implied reader, sense-making frames, and sense-making gaps to analyze…

Weinberg, Andrea E.; Trott, Carlie D.; Sample McMeeking, Laura B. – Science Education, 2018
Undergraduate research experiences (UREs) that include interdisciplinary, engagement-oriented, and collaborative experiences have the potential to benefit students in unique ways. Through these innovative experiences, students are able to see the social impact and importance of their work--a factor known to strengthen the academic and career…

Weinberg, Amie – ProQuest LLC, 2010
Students are beneficiaries of the educational system, yet little is known about their perceptions of the system. Furthermore, despite an increased focus on educational technology, many questions persist. Several previous studies about technology perceptions have focused on high school and college students. This study was designed to explore…

Weinberg, Stuart – Journal of Mathematics Education at Teachers College, 2010
The purpose of this article is to summarize the methodology and findings in the case studies of three student teachers in secondary school mathematics. The broad area of interest is the relationship between beliefs and practice. In the study, "beliefs" refers to expectations teachers have that students will be successful in learning with…

Weinberg, David R. – Montessori Life: A Publication of the American Montessori Society, 2012
People have become accustomed to the imprecision of language, though imprecise language has a subtle way of misguiding thoughts and actions. In this article, the author argues that the term "teacher" in reference to the Montessori practitioner is a distortion of everything Maria Montessori tried to undo about traditional education. In dealing with…

Weinberg, Aaron; Fukawa-Connelly, Tim; Wiesner, Emilie – Educational Studies in Mathematics, 2015
Researchers have increasingly focused on how gestures in mathematics aid in thinking and communication. This paper builds on Arzarello's (2006) idea of a "semiotic bundle" and several frameworks for describing individual gestures and applies these ideas to a case study of an instructor's gestures in an undergraduate abstract algebra…
