In this article we explore equity issues related to school district decision-making about students’ opportunities to learn algebra through analysis of a large-scale survey. We examine the extent to which district decision-makers for mathematics attend to aspects of equity when they make decisions about resources related to the teaching and learning of algebra.

This article uses three commonly cited criteria for evaluating the controversial nature of issues to determine whether educators should frame the issue of marriage equality as controversial following the 2015 landmark ruling in Obergefell v Hodges that legalized same-sex marriage in the United States. An analysis of each criterion suggests that the issue of marriage equality has tipped to the point where it should be taught as a settled issue and that there is no rational reason to consider opposing viewpoints as legitimate within the setting of public K–12 education.

This article reports on a yearlong qualitative study of ninth graders identified as struggling readers. Analysis showed that youths tended to participate in limiting contexts that positioned them as deficient readers regardless, sometimes, of skilled, engaged reading, but when classroom contexts focused on disciplinary literacy and building trusting relationships, youths positioned themselves as readers and learners.

We investigate the relationship between organizational supports—including mentoring, professional development, collaboration, and leadership support—provided to beginning middle school mathematics teachers and the extent to which these teachers implement reform-oriented math instruction. Data from a mixed-methods longitudinal study of beginning middle school math teachers enable us to examine the change in instructional quality over time as a function of the level of, and change in, organizational supports.

by Christa Greenfader & Liane Brouillette — 2017
This study examines the speaking abilities of K–2 Hispanic ELs who were randomly assigned to an arts-based professional development program that emphasized oral English-language interactions. Additional review suggests that the activities corresponded well to Common Core speaking and listening standards, but concerns are raised that a lack of speaking assessments in the Common Core may result in a subsequent distortion of K–2 instruction.

by Curt Adams & Anna Palmer — 2017
This study uses the lenses of positive education and self-determination theory to examine features of the school environment that promote reading growth in students.

by Kara Jackson, Lynsey Gibbons & Charlotte Sharpe — 2017

by Myley Dang & Karen Nylund-Gibson — 2017
In this article, the authors implemented a latent class analysis to study the extent to which math attitudes and self-efficacy influence careers in science, technology, engineering, and math using the Education Longitudinal Study of 2002. Authors examined these patterns for 10th grade native and non-native English speakers and followed their trajectories ten years later.

by Angela Barton, Edna Tan & Day Greenberg — 2017
This article describes how and why youth engage in making in an after-school, youth-focused, community-based makerspace program. Using a mobilities of learning framework, authors discuss how youth appropriated and repurposed the process of making, and unpack how the program attempted to value and negotiate youths’ ways of making from an equity-oriented perspective.

by Kathleen Clark — 2017
This article reports the results of two related studies that investigated the effects of a 10-week reading intervention program in which culturally relevant texts were used for instruction on urban African American children’s reading achievement.

by Ahlam Lee — 2017
This article explores the effects of computer-based learning activities in math classrooms on STEM major selection in 4-year postsecondary institutions. The author uses a nationally representative sample of U.S. young adults who enrolled in 4-year postsecondary institutions by 2006.

by Jamie Colwell & David Reinking — 2016
This article examines the results of a ten-week formative experiment to investigate how eighth-grade history instruction could be aligned with literacy goals. We give specific focus to our collaboration with the history teacher and her implementation of an instructional intervention to scaffold students’ reading and analysis of historical texts.

by Viki Young, Ann House, David Sherer, Corinne Singleton, Haiwen Wang & Kristin Klopfenstein — 2016
This article highlights the early outcomes of the T STEM initiative in Texas, the largest investment in scaling up inclusive STEM-focused schools at the time. It describes the broad infrastructure undergirding T STEM academy development.

by Becky Huang & Alison Bailey — 2016

by Rebecca Tarlau — 2015
This article examines the educational initiatives of a large agrarian social movement, the Brazilian Landless Workers’ Movement (MST), by exploring the diverse pedagogies and theories activists have drawn on to develop their alternative educational proposals for rural schools. The article analyzes this process of grassroots educational innovation, while also discussing the tensions that arise when social movements with particular visions of societal transformation demand to participate in the public school sphere.
