Du, Wenbin; Liu, Denghui; Johnson, Carla C.; Sondergeld, Toni A.; Bolshakova, Virginia L. J.; Moore, Tamara J. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
This study of a state-funded, 3-year implementation of an integrated STEM professional development (PD) program for teachers from two middle schools in the midwestern U.S. examined if participants in the PD were enabled to transform their practice and perceptions of STEM. An integrated STEM approach includes a focus on the STEM disciplines, along…

Hong, Dae S.; Choi, Kyong Mi; Runnalls, Cristina; Hwang, Jihyun – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Among dozens of factors that influence mathematics teaching in the elementary classroom, textbooks endure as a significant contributor to the conversation. While teachers have many considerations while lesson planning, the textbook often forms an important launch point in determining what to include in lessons and how to do so. It follows that…

Kosko, Karl W. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Visual representations and manipulatives are a highly advocated mathematical tool for the teaching and learning of multiplication and division. Although there is some prior research on elementary teachers' general use of manipulatives and visual representations, there is little to no specific focus on use of such representations on a specific…

Killough, Joy K.; Stuessy, Carol L. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Can participation in a 4-day workshop change science teachers' beliefs about reformed science teaching? We observe a significant difference between pre- and post-workshop surveys and explore an unexpected relationship involving teaching experience. Results of this exploratory study indicate a significant correlation between high school science…

Stohlmann, Micah – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Of the four subjects in an integrated science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) approach, mathematics has not received enough focus. This could be in part because mathematics teachers may be apprehensive or unsure about how to implement integrated STEM education in their classrooms. There are benefits to integrated STEM in a…

Nixon, Ryan S.; Toerien, Rene; Luft, Julie A. – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Despite agreement among teacher educators, scholars, and policymakers on the importance of teachers' subject matter knowledge (SMK), existing models provide limited information about the nature of this foundational component of teacher knowledge. The common assumption is that teachers need to know more about the science subject matter than their…

Fisher, Molly H.; Thomas, Jonathan; Jong, Cindy; Schack, Edna O.; Dueber, David – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
This paper examines the implementation of an instructional module on preservice elementary teachers' professional noticing of children's mathematical thinking. The module focuses on professional noticing skills through the content focus of early algebraic reasoning and uses complex video vignettes from whole class instruction in authentic…

I, Ji-Yeong – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Implementing mathematically challenging tasks is difficult for teachers when working with emergent bilinguals because cognitively demanding tasks in mathematics commonly have high language demand. Currently, inadequate teacher preparation for teaching emergent bilinguals is becoming a significant concern in the United States as this population of…

Pearce, Erin; de la Fuente, Yohanis; Hartweg, Beau; Weinburgh, Molly – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
To increase the likelihood for continuous growth and improvement, professional development for high school biology teachers should include long-term, targeted instruction with an accompanying peer-coaching component. This study examined the views of biology teachers who were engaged in a two-year professional development program, which included a…

Perkins Coppola, Matthew – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
Research indicates there is a need for teachers to experience multiple mastery experiences with engineering teaching in order to improve teaching engineering self-efficacy. To prepare future K-5 teachers to teach the engineering design process, one science methods course integrated 2-day engineering mini-units into the class meeting and…

Hughes, Pamela; Swars Auslander, Susan; Stinson, David W.; Fortner, C. Kevin – School Science and Mathematics, 2019
This quantitative study investigated the relationships among practicing elementary teachers' (N = 153) beliefs about mathematics and its teaching and learning, mathematics anxiety, and instructional practices in mathematics. When viewed singly, the findings reveal the teachers with higher levels of mathematics anxiety tend to use less…

Fonger, Nicole L.; Davis, Jon D.; Rohwer, Mary Lou – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
This research addresses the issue of how to support students' representational fluency--the ability to create, move within, translate across, and derive meaning from external representations of mathematical ideas. The context of solving linear equations in a combined computer algebra system (CAS) and paper-and-pencil classroom environment is…

Beesley, Andrea D.; Clark, Tedra F.; Dempsey, Kathleen; Tweed, Anne – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
In the transition to middle school, and during the middle school years, students' motivation for mathematics tends to decline from what it was during elementary school. Formative assessment strategies in mathematics can help support motivation by building confidence for challenging tasks. In this study, the authors developed and piloted a…

Jung, Hyunyi; Newton, Jill A. – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
Mathematical modeling has been highlighted recently as Common Core State Standards for Mathematics (CCSSM) included Model with Mathematics as one of the Standards for Mathematical Practices (SMP) and a modeling strand in the high school standards. This common aspect of standards across most states in the United States intended by CCSSM authors and…
