Garcia, Antero – Schools: Studies in Education, 2019
This article describes the need to address the emotional health and healing of teachers in schools today. Specifically, I highlight the gap between how we support students healing from loss and the lack of such support offered to teachers. This fissure leads to burnout and an ideological unraveling of teacher identity. Sharing personal…

In this article, three educators 12 years into their careers discuss what they've learned about teaching.

Photo-elicitation interviewing (PEI) is a technique in which photographs are used within an interview context.

Mitchell, Gloria – Schools: Studies in Education, 2019
Any activity that involves making choices entails the risk of failure, and the more personally meaningful the choices are, the more deeply felt the failure will be. Drawing on my experiences in supervising the self-chosen, long-term projects of my eighth-grade students, I argue that it is neither possible nor desirable to prevent young people from…

Katch, Jane; Harrow, Sheryl; Lockney, Jackie; Baffa, Nancy; Fuchs, Juliana; Peters, Heather; Whitney, Steve; Inman, Katy; Diller, Susan; Lewenberg, Anne – Schools: Studies in Education, 2019
Teachers at a, mostly white, independent school met monthly for a year, discussing how to talk with children from pre-K through eighth grade about race.

Fornaciari, Aleksi – Schools: Studies in Education, 2019
In educational research, the teaching profession is often treated as interaction located only in the classroom, with less attention to other aspects of school reality. Some studies, and the Finnish national curriculum (2014), suggest that the school system needs more practices that aim at negotiation, cooperation, and interaction with the…

Furman, Cara – Schools: Studies in Education, 2019
Much has been written about the importance of giving personal attention to children's written work. The focus has been on the effect of this feedback on the writing and on the child. Drawing on the philosophical discourse of the care of the self, I argue that the ways in which a teacher gives feedback informs the development of the teacher.…

Bruce, Bertram – Schools: Studies in Education, 2018
Our ways of living together, communicating, and learning shape social life and our responses to problems such as economic injustice, racism, or climate change. That insight led John Dewey to identify democracy and its engine, democratic education, as the best means for assembling the knowledge necessary to address complex challenges and to ensure…

Kloss, Dean – Schools: Studies in Education, 2018
Contemporary academic scholarship has devoted a tremendous amount of effort to documenting the prevalent standardized, formal schooling environment.
