Addressing The Multiplication Makes Bigger And Division Makes Smaller Misconceptions Via Prediction And Clickers, Kien Lim 2010 University of Texas at El Paso

Addressing The Multiplication Makes Bigger And Division Makes Smaller Misconceptions Via Prediction And Clickers, Kien Lim

Kien H Lim

This article presents a lesson that uses prediction items, clickers and visuals via PowerPoint slides to help prospective middle-school teachers address two common misconceptions: multiplication makes bigger and division makes smaller (MMB–DMS). Classroom research was conducted to explore the viability of such a lesson. Results show that the lesson was effective in creating awareness that multiplication does not always make bigger and division does not always makes smaller, uncovering students’ misconceptions, and providing opportunities for students to learn from mistakes. Students liked the activity for various reasons, such as getting to learn certain mathematical ideas, to think about the ...

This chapter also includes descriptions of how the multiple regression analyses were conducted and how the hierarchical models explaining civic knowledge were estimated. The final section of the ...


Development Education And Initial Teacher Education, Roland Tormey, Tamzin Batteson 2010 École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL)

Development Education And Initial Teacher Education, Roland Tormey, Tamzin Batteson

Roland Tormey

How do we develop the capacity and knowledge of student teachers to meaningfully address development issues in their teaching? How do we do so in a context in which much of the research evidence suggests that what is done in many teacher education programmes has little impact on classroom practices?This chapter looks at these issues.

Aspasia Dania

The study of the effectiveness of the use of technology in the teaching of motor skills has recently attracted the researchers’ interest to a great extent. The aim of this study is the analytical and critical presentation of the researches focusing on the application of technology on movement education with emphasis on physical and dance education. The predominant research finding is that although contemporary technological media are substantially advanced and innovative, they have not been incorporated in the classroom everyday learning practice yet. A prerequisite for the achievement of this goal is the researchers’ interest to be focused: a) on ...

'Using Drama In Education To Develop Pre-Service English Teachers' Understanding And Capacity In Teaching Social Justice At Post-Primary Level', Jennifer Hennessy 2010 Univeristy of Limerick

'Using Drama In Education To Develop Pre-Service English Teachers' Understanding And Capacity In Teaching Social Justice At Post-Primary Level', Jennifer Hennessy

Dr. Jennifer Hennessy

One of the most common forms of non-recognition in education is for a group to be generally left outside educational discourse by not being named or known (Lynch and Baker 2005). Addressing inequalities of respect and recognition involves, amongst other things, the development of critical and empathetic perspectives and of educational experiences which enable critical dialogue (Lynch and Baker 2005). This paper examines a project conducted in the University of Limerick in 2010 with a cohort of 3rd year pre-service English teachers. The aim of the project was to facilitate an understanding of how drama in education could be used ...

Validation Of The Chinese Version Of The Sense Of Self (Sos) Scale, Ronnel King, Fraide Ganotice, David Watkins

Ronnel B King

This study explored the cross-cultural applicability of the Sense of Self (SOS) Scale in the Hong Kong Chinese cultural context. The SOS Scale is a 26-item questionnaire designed to measure students’ sense of purpose, self-reliance, and self-concept in school. Six hundred ninety-seven Hong Kong Chinese high school students participated in the study. Both within-network and between-network approaches to construct validation were adopted. Responses to this questionnaire are shown to have good internal consistency reliability, and support is provided for its construct validity in terms of its factorial structure and correlations with other educational outcomes such as learning strategies. In addition ...


Engineering Success: The Role Of Faculty Relationships With African American Undergraduates, Christopher Newman 2010 University of San Diego

Engineering Success: The Role Of Faculty Relationships With African American Undergraduates, Christopher Newman

Christopher B. Newman

Previous research has found that faculty–student relationships are a contributing factor to the retention of students at four-year institutions. In this study, the experiences of twelve African American engineers are explored through the lens of Fiske’s (Structures of Social Life: The Four Elementary Forms of Human Relations, Free Press, New York, 1991) social-relational models theory. The overall findings of this study suggest that faculty play an important role in encouraging or dissuading the African American engineers in this study to persist in their respective majors. Additionally, the involvement in faculty research laboratories and the referral by faculty to ...

Higher Education And Democracy: Essays On Service-Learning And Civic Engagement, John Saltmarsh, Edward Zlotkowski

John Saltmarsh

Higher Education and Democracy is a collection of essays on how civic engagement in higher education works to achieve what authors John Saltmarsh and Edward Zlotkowski consider the academic and civic purposes of higher education. These purposes include creating new modes of teaching and learning, fostering participation in American democracy, developing and respecting community and civic institutions, and encouraging the constant renewal of all these dimensions of American life. Organized thematically, the twenty-two essays in this volume provide signposts designed to advance higher education’s journey toward fulfilling these civic purposes. For the authors, service-learning is positioned as centrally important ...

Reflections On Academic Writing And Publication For Doctoral Students And Supervisors: Reconciling Authorial Voice And Performativity, Teresa Marchant, Naomi Anastasi, Peter Miller 2010 Southern Cross University

Reflections On Academic Writing And Publication For Doctoral Students And Supervisors: Reconciling Authorial Voice And Performativity, Teresa Marchant, Naomi Anastasi, Peter Miller

Peter Miller

The current research context in Australia and other countries such as the United Kingdom (UK) and New Zealand (NZ) is ‘performativity’. This provides opportunities for and obstacles to research higher degree (RHD) students developing their authorial voice. This paper illustrates how to facilitate improved academic writing and increased publishing from doctorates. Using mixed methods, it draws on interviews with eight doctoral students about writing under supervision, observations from a six year project to publish seven books, and six journal articles published from doctoral students’ work. Students experienced supervision as being ‘written over’ by their supervisors, in contrast to the constructive ...

Befriending (White) Women Faculty In Higher Education?, Barbara Thayer-Bacon 2010 University of Tennessee, Knoxville

Befriending (White) Women Faculty In Higher Education?, Barbara Thayer-Bacon

Barbara J. Thayer-Bacon

In this essay Thayer-Bacon explores the issue of a chilly climate in higher education that is generated by some women, in particular White women, and the destructive behavior they bring to higher education that damages their programs, as well as their working relationships with colleagues and students. The author seeks to find ways to befriend women in higher education, her sisters of color as well as her White sisters. Thayer-Bacon’s focus here is on White women. Her approach is to use stories from the field to illustrate problems that are analyzed, using a narrative style of philosophical argument.
