McGruder, Kate – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
Though there is extensive research on the health outcomes of individuals who have experienced adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), society at large has not embraced this ground-breaking research and many still believe that the use of harsh punishment for students provides the same intended result as a discipline approach that teaches coping…

Peterson, Jennifer – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
Currently, online formal education is growing at a phenomenal rate; however, many fear that online courses do not provide the same rigor as on-campus courses. This is due in large part to the perception that students are more likely to cheat in online courses. A number of studies have been completed in this area and, in fact, many have shown that…

Carter, Kate – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
Teaching middle school mathematics, I have found that classroom dynamics have a profound impact on the quality of mathematical discussion. Wanting to improve classroom discussion in order to better facilitate both small-group and student-driven learning, I started the school year by randomly grouping students every week for their small groups. I…

Ferrell, Elizabeth W.; Ensminger, David; Coleman, Elizabeth – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
In this article, we contribute to dialogue about the capstone for most doctoral programs: the dissertation. More specifically, we explore the mentorship between doctoral student and chair and assert that using a nontraditional dissertation format affords more fulfilling relationships for the mentee and mentor. Having recently completed…

Minnett, Jari L.; James-Gallaway, ArCasia D.; Owens, Devean R. – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
Many Black women doctoral students entering and persisting through graduate study lack the affirmation, community, and resources necessary to confidently assert themselves as members of the academy. These barriers make it especially difficult for Black women to effectively navigate doctoral programs that privilege and normalize elite white male…

Gibbons, Scott; Farley, Amy N. – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
The literature base is clear that when teachers reflect on their practice, they can identify areas of strength and areas of growth--both of which can improve the quality of their teaching (Jaeger, 2013). However, the realities of teaching today often mean teachers have many competing responsibilities and very little time between classes and after…

The creation of a relational, co-mentoring community for aspiring school leaders during their certification program may allow these future leaders to participate in a peer-mentoring process wherein they engage one another in interdependence, experience reciprocal growth-fostering interactions, and tackle issues related to systemic power. The…

Hayden, Emily; Gratteau-Zinnel, Travis – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
Mentoring for early career teachers is well-documented. Less research exists on formal mentoring for pre-service teachers, but early attrition rates are so alarming that we cannot afford to lose any time in preparing novices for the challenges they will face. This research explored mentoring support provided to pre-service, or novice, teachers in…

Angelone, Lauren – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
The purpose of this paper is methodological. It serves as a defense of virtual ethnography as a method, not only well suited to postpositivist research, but as a tool to further interrogate the tenuous truth that all research produces. To accomplish this, virtual ethnography is situated within the history of qualitative inquiry and then examined…

James-Gallaway, ArCasia D. – Mid-Western Educational Researcher, 2019
This paper uses Derrick Bell's interest convergence principle, which argues that whites will support racial justice efforts only if they believe they will see gains for themselves, to examine white philanthropic support of Black education in the postbellum South and in current school reforms. Using the concept of "bad" (or compromising)…
