Levine, Sarah – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2019
Research in literary response indicates that in classroom contexts, high school students have difficulty constructing thematic interpretations of literary texts, tending instead to summarize or build happiness-bound morals that ignore a text's potentially negative tones. However, studies in out-of-school contexts show students building thematic…

Walsh, Elizabeth M.; Tsurusaki, Blakely K. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2018
When engaging with socioscientific issues, learners act at the intersection of scientific, school, and other societal communities, drawing on knowledge, practices, and identities from both in and out of the classroom to address problems as national or global citizens. We present three case studies of high school students whose classroom…

Rubel, Laurie H.; Hall-Wieckert, Maren; Lim, Vivian Y. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
This article presents a set of spatial tools for classroom learning about spatial justice. As part of a larger team, we designed a curriculum that engaged 10 learners with 3 spatial tools: (a) an oversized floor map, (b) interactive geographic information systems (GIS) maps, and (c) participatory mapping. We analyze how these tools supported…

Allen, Carrie D.; Eisenhart, Margaret – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
In this article, we investigate how the national imperative to increase opportunities for young women of color in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and to broaden their participation was taken up locally at two high schools in one school district. Using ethnographic and longitudinal data, we focus on four young women of…

Nasir, Na'ilah Suad; Vakil, Sepehr – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
Drawing on data from a study of learning, race, and equity in an urban high school organized around specialized learning academies, we examine the ways in which the design, framing, construction, and organization of learning spaces deeply influences the types of access to rigorous learning that students experience. We draw on the notion of…

Van Horne, Katie; Bell, Philip – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2017
Recent science educational policy reform efforts call for a shift toward practice-focused instruction in kindergarten-Grade 12 science education. We argue that this focus on engaging students in epistemic practices of science opens up new possibilities for the design of learning environments that support the stabilization of learners'…

Sosa, Teresa; Hall, Allison H.; Goldman, Susan R.; Lee, Carol D. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2016
Literature can be a powerful resource for adolescents' psychosocial development, as it provides opportunities to experience the world through the perspectives of others and juxtapose these with one's own experiences. However, gaining access to these perspectives requires going beyond literal words on the page to explore interpretive meanings. This…

Langer-Osuna, Jennifer M. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2015
This article investigates the coconstruction of student identity and engagement in the case of a 9th grader in a project-based algebra classroom that afforded students a great deal of autonomy. The focal student, Terrance, utilized classroom resources to serve both project-related and social functions as he interacted with his peers during…

Wilkerson-Jerde, Michelle Hoda; Wilensky, Uri J. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2015
The learning sciences community has made significant progress in understanding how people think and learn about complex systems. But less is known about how people make sense of the quantitative patterns and mathematical formalisms often used to study these systems. In this article, we make a case for attending to and supporting connections…

Esmonde, Indigo – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
This article investigates how affluent students made sense of social justice issues that were embedded in mathematics learning activities. I present 2 case studies of such activities at the intermediate and secondary levels in 2 different schools. The analysis draws on video records and classroom artifacts and applies the theoretical framework of…

Thompson, Jessica – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
What does it mean for ethnic minority girls, who have historically been marginalized by schools, to "see themselves" in science? Schools fail to create spaces for students to engage their identity resources in the learning of science or to negotiate and enact new science-related identities. This study investigates relationships among…

Roll, Ido; Baker, Ryan S. J. d.; Aleven, Vincent; Koedinger, Kenneth R. – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
Seeking the right level of help at the right time can support learning. However, in the context of online problem-solving environments, it is still not entirely clear which help-seeking strategies are desired. We use fine-grained data from 38 high school students who worked with the Geometry Cognitive Tutor for 2 months to better understand the…

DiSalvo, Betsy; Guzdial, Mark; Bruckman, Amy; McKlin, Tom – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2014
Why would individuals who are capable of learning opt not to? Learning is important for stability and success. It would seem rational that students in groups that are frequently underrepresented or marginalized would be motivated to learn. However, negotiation of multiple identities and self-beliefs can impact motivations to learn. For example,…

Berland, Matthew; Martin, Taylor; Benton, Tom; Smith, Carmen Petrick; Davis, Don – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2013
Many have suggested that tinkering plays a critical role in novices learning to program, and recent work in learning analytics (Baker & Yacef, 2009 Blikstein, 2011) allows us to describe new relationships in the process. Using learning analytics, we explore how students progress from exploration, through tinkering, to refinement, a pathway…

Medina, Richard; Suthers, Daniel – Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2013
We analyze the interaction of 3 students working on mathematics problems over several days in a virtual math team. Our analysis traces out how successful collaboration in a later session is contingent upon the work of prior sessions and shows how the development of representational practices is an important aspect of these participants' problem…
