Mutch-Jones, Karen; Gasca, Santiago; Pallant, Amy; Lee, Hee-Sun – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
The purpose of this descriptive study was to examine teacher instructional dilemmas and opportunities that emerged when students worked with interactive computer-based simulation models during the High-Adventure Science (HAS) project. The intervention included the HAS digital curriculum, designed for grades 7-12. Each curricular unit was framed to…

Smith, Carmen Petrick – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
Body-based activities have the potential to support mathematics learning, but we know little about the impact they have in the classroom. This study compares high school geometry students learning through either body-based or analogous non-body-based activities over the course of a two-week unit on similarity. Pre- and post-tests revealed that…

Suominen, Ashley L.; Conner, AnneMarie; Park, Hyejin – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
In this study, 15 prospective secondary (grades 6-12) mathematics teachers were asked to situate themselves as middle school (grades 6-8) mathematics teachers and validate arguments purported to prove that the sum of the first "n" odd natural numbers is "n"[superscript 2]. We examined their stated expectations for middle school…

Wilburne, Jane; Polly, Drew; Franz, Dana; Wagstaff, David A. – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
This paper presents the results of a Q-sort activity in which 38 grades 4-10 mathematics teachers reflected on their classroom teaching and ranked a set of teaching actions that support high-leverage mathematics teaching from most to least characteristic of their classroom teaching. Data analysis included examining the overall ranking of each…

Burt, Brian A.; Johnson, Jarrel T. – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
The development of talent in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields remains a national priority, one for which increasing the number of STEM participants from historically underrepresented populations is germane. Increasing the number of historically underrepresented students who complete advanced degrees in STEM will not…

Johnson, Teri N.; Dabney, Katherine P. – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
This multiple-case study examined constraints encountered by early career elementary school teachers as they try to deliver high-quality science instruction. Four first-year teachers, who expressed confidence in their preparation and enthusiasm for teaching science, were asked to reflect on the most effective strategies for teaching elementary…

Wilkerson, Trena L.; Eddy, Colleen M.; Quebec Fuentes, Sarah; Sorto, M. Alejandra; Gupta, Dittika; Ward, Elizabeth K.; Jasper, William A.; Parker, Yolanda A.; Mallam, Winifred; Cooper, Sandra; Kerschen, Keith – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
There is a compelling need to develop an algebra teacher self-efficacy instrument (ATSEI) as algebra continues to be considered a gatekeeper course for postsecondary educational and career opportunities, which is seen as a crucial piece in closing the achievement gap. This paper reports on the development and validation of the ATSEI, an instrument…

Saylor, Laura Lackner; Walton, Janet B. – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
In order to explore the potential for math-talk learning communities (utilizing interactive discussions of mathematics principles) as a framework for preservice teacher learning, a math-talk learning community framework was adopted in a methods of teaching mathematics course for preservice early elementary teachers. A case study of the co-created…

Riggs, Iris M.; Fischman, Davida D.; Riggs, Matt L.; Jetter, Madeleine E.; Jesunathadas, Joseph – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
Efforts to measure teacher self-efficacy beliefs have built upon the theories of Albert Bandura. Continuing in that vein, the purpose of this study was to develop a measure that assesses teachers' efficacy and expectancy beliefs regarding teaching mathematics with an emphasis on conceptual understanding and mathematical practices, and to use this…

Kloser, Matthew; Wilsey, Matthew; Twohy, Kyra E.; Immonen, Audrey D.; Navotas, Ariel C. – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
STEM education has received attention both as a reform pedagogy and as a public means for economic growth and national security. Yet, despite this attention, clarity about what "counts" as STEM and how the individual disciplines relate to an integrated approach remains ambiguous. This article elicits the conceptions about what…

Owens, David C.; Sadler, Troy D.; Murakami, Christopher D.; Tsai, Chia-Lin – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
While much is known about the characteristics that researchers deem valuable for professional development (PD), teachers' perceptions of their PD needs are less understood. In this study, we sought to explore teachers' perceptions of their PD needs, including PD format, time frame, and topics covered, and how those perceptions varied by teachers'…

Kang, Rui; Skinner, Felicia; Hyatt, Charles – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
African American students have been systematically discouraged from taking advanced courses in science and math. In addition, low Advanced Placement (AP) exam passing rates among African American students raise further concerns regarding whether accessibility alone adequately addresses the issue of equity. However, little research has been…

Stohlmann, Micah – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
The integration of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education has received increased attention in the last decade. This is in part because of the need for students to increase in their STEM knowledge and competencies. Research is still needed to determine effective implementation models and curriculum for integrated STEM.…

Amador, Julie M. – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
As teachers design lessons, their considerations influence their instructional practice. Researchers have found that teachers often have preconceived ideas about gender and large-scale assessment data show gender differences in mathematics achievement. Given the differences in gender performance, and recognizing the role that gender considerations…

Edmondson, Elizabeth; Choudhry, Fahima – School Science and Mathematics, 2018
This study investigates whether elementary science teachers participating in a four-week professional development workshop develop new understandings about classroom discourse and whether they are able to implement strategies toward teaching science as student-to-student discourse. Perspectives and the extent of teacher use of discourse strategies…
